The AEROSMITH frontman appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show"
and spoke about the album, explaining: "I headed down to Nashville last
spring to start working on this project, wrote some kick-ass songs with
some of Music City's finest songwriters."
He added: "Country music is the new rock 'n' roll. It's not just
about porches, dogs and kicking your boots up. It's a whole lot more.
It's about being real."
Tyler co-produced "We're All Somebody From Somewhere" with such heavyweights as T Bone Burnett, Dan Huff, Marti Fredriksen and Jaren Johnston.
Tyler spoke about the strength of the new material, telling Rolling Stone:
"I believe y'all are gonna listen to this stuff and you're gonna agree
with me that it fell from a star. I had nothing to do with this shit,
it's just Nashville. There's something so magical about this town and me
writing with all these people."
