Steven Tyler has officially signed to Big Machine Label Group. He will release his first album later this year on BMLG's Dot Records imprint. Headed by Scott Borchetta, the label group consists of Big Machine Records, the Valory Music Co., Republic Nashville, Nash Icon and Dot.
"There was an immediate connection with Scott and Big Machine, and Nashville seems like the perfect segue for a solo project … and Dot Records is the right fit," Tyler said in a statement.
"My earliest influences put me somewhere between the EVERLY BROTHERS and the CARTER FAMILY, and this project is all about me paying homage to my country roots.
"I've been working with some f**ing epic Nashville songwriters, getting my feet wet with their style and groove."
