Steven Tyler and Jax – “Piece of My Heart/Walk This Way/Love is Your Name” Live
Write Your Name Into This Song!
In this American Idol episode, Steven Tyler shares the stage with Jax. Steven performed his latest single “Love Is Your Name.” It was written by Eric Paslay and Lindsey Lee and it’s the lead single for his upcoming debut solo album which will be released later this year. Though more popularly known for his immortal rock songs, Steven ventures into something new and different — country music.
- Number 15 in the US Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles (Billboard)
- Number 33 in the US Country Airplay (Billboard)
- Number 27 in the US Hot Country Songs (Billboard)
The song is also described as “harmony-rich” and “[not] quite like anything else on country radio at the moment”. Tyler himself describes it as being “a little bit between Steven Tyler and Mumford & Sons and the Everly Brothers.”
However, Steven’s passion for country songs has deep roots since he grew up listening to Patsy Cline, Dan Hicks and The Everly Brothers just to name a few. This particular track starts off with the use of an instrument which is rarely used in this specific genre nowadays — an autoharp. There are also banjos and fiddles featured in the song.
The best part? The solo, which starts off as a fiddle hook, then gives way to an electric guitar riff, then climaxes with a vocal run from Tyler. — The Rolling Stone
As always, Steven Tyler rips into the song with his powerhouse vocals! Hands down amazing!
