On July 10th, Steven Tyler played to a sold-out crowd at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver during a stop along his …Out On A Limb tour. The Aerosmith frontman is out on the road all summer long throughout North America in promotion of his newly released solo project, We’re All Somebody From Somewhere, which is the living rock legend’s official foray into country music. Along with introducing songs from his new record, Tyler performs a wide range of his classic originals and covers from his four decades long career.
She’s a little bit country, he’s a little bit rock and roll. Together, they make crazy good music!
Carrie Underwood and Steven Tyler are the latest musicians to team up for CMT Crossroads, a program that pairs country artists with stars from a different genre. Some of my favourite duos that resulted from Crossroads include Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson; and John Mayer with Keith Urban and Brad Paisley.
I thought pairing Carrie up with Steven again (they performed “Undo It / Walk This Way” during last year’s ACM Awards) was a really cool idea because they seem to have so much fun on stage together. Their setlist consisted of “Sweet Emotion / Love in an Elevator”, “Before He Cheats”, “Cryin'”, “Born to Be Wild”, and my favourite, an emotionally-charged mash-up of Carrie’s “Just a Dream” and Aerosmith’s “Dream On”.
I really hope that a duet between Carrie and Steven is in the works because I can’t get enough of this dynamic duo!
