Steven Tyler sings at tiny Nashville club
By KRISTIN M. HALL, Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler made a surprise appearance in Nashville and performed two songs before the audience was ushered out for the next show.

Tyler was in the audience Tuesday night at the Bluebird Cafe watching four Nashville songwriters perform in the round, including Mallary Hope, Phil Barton, Lindsey Lee and Marti Frederiksen. The small, 90-seat venue is where many country singers get their first break, and where many established artists often stop by to play a few songs or listen.

Frederiksen invited Tyler to sing "Jaded," which Frederiksen co-wrote, and Tyler then jumped on Lee's piano to belt out the band's power ballad "Dream On."

After the show, Tyler told The Associated Press that he had never performed in a room that small, and that he was in Nashville to write songs.

I saw Aerosmith when they had a bit of matter.  Back in 1988.  Now it is just sad.  Flava Flav/Tyler, too 2016.

"... performed two songs before the audience was ushered out ..."


It sounds to me that the audience walked out when they realized Steven Tyler was going to sing again.
