Steven Tyler gives surprise show at Nashville club

September 4, 2013

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

The rocker was in the audience Tuesday night at the Bluebird Cafe watching songwriters perform. The 90-seat venue is where many country music singers first got their break and where many established artists often stop by to play a few songs or listen.

Songwriter Marti Frederiksen invited Tyler to sing “Jaded,” which Frederiksen co-wrote. Tyler then jumped on the piano to belt out the band’s power ballad “Dream On.”

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