Tyler released a new country single, “Love Is Your Name” in May, and the video for it is out now. Observe:
If you like scarves, this is the music video for you!
Rolling Stone calls it “out-of-the-box.” Naw, I think it’s pretty much right in the middle of the damn box. Why country? As he told the magazine,
Country is changing. I think country is the new rock & roll — everyone is trying to stretch out.
Yeah, I don’t know if I can agree with that. I’m a fan of the country classics, like Dolly Parton, but as for new/current country, it really honestly doesn’t do much of anything for me.
Here’s what Tyler has to say about the video:
This video has so many personal elements in it for me. I came from a family that was a touring band. I grew up as a young boy with my pet raccoon and my slingshot. My real band Loving Mary is featured in the video. This song and video resemble what the album will sound like.
Yeah, I’m gonna have to decline.
What do you guys think? Especially curious to hear from country fans.
