Steven Tyler, considered one of music’s most recognizable and dynamic frontmen, has been added to the superstar lineup for the 34th Annual WE Fest at Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, MN. The legendary lead singer and recently signed Big Machine Label Group recording artist will be playing with his Nashville-based band Loving Mary and join previously announced headliners Eric Church, Kid Rock and Tim McGraw, as well as country music chart-toppers Lee Brice, Billy Currington, Gary Allan, Montgomery Gentry, Joe Nichols, LoCash, Granger Smith featuring Earl Dibbles, Jr., Halfway to Hazard, William Michael Morgan and Amanda Watkins for this year’s festival August 4-6, 2016.
Tyler, the influential songwriter and prolific voice of the best-selling American rock band Aerosmith, is currently working on his highly anticipated country inspired music album with producers such as T Bone Burnett and Dann Huff. His first country single “Love Is Your Name” debuted on May 13, 2015 and reached #1 on the Billboard Country Streaming Songs chart. Tyler released his latest country single, “Red, White & You” in January 2016. Rolling Stone cited Tyler as “one of the greatest singers of all time.” Tyler and Aerosmith have sold more than 150 million records worldwide, and have won four Grammy Awards, six American Music Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, and an Emmy Award. In addition to having nine number one hits, 25 gold, 18 platinum and 12 multi-platinum album certifications, Tyler, along with the rest of his band members were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
