According to a well connected Aerosmith fan, Steven Tyler and Carrie Underwood are releasing a country duet on the band’s forthcoming album, Music From Another Dimension, due out August 28.
Aerosmith recorded a country tune written by Marti Fredrickson last summer in Boston. The songwriter lobbied the band to turn it into a duet with a female country singer, and in the last few days, Carrie has recorded a duet part for the song. The tune is reportedly a country ballad with potential to cross over to other genres and is a “sure fire smash” according to sources who have heard it.
You can read AeroFANatic’s entire post on the matter over at his facebook. This guy has been right about stuff in the past, so there is a very good chance this rumor is true!
It should come as no surprise that Steven and Carrie are laying down a track. The duo have performed together in the past. They sang a blistering duet at the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2011 and filmed a Superbowl CMT Crossroads special that aired in January.
The tune they recorded is either “Beautiful” or “Closer” from the forthcoming album.
UPDATE: The original Facebook post was deleted after Aerosmith drummer, Joey Kramer, tweeted, “Stealing
@Aerosmith thunder look up the word PROSECUTION !”
