Taylor Swift, Steven Tyler Mashup Unveiled on Taste of Country Nights [Listen]
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler recently expressed his interest in working with country superstar Taylor Swift on some tracks. Which raises the question, what on Earth would that sound like? Well, if you’re one of the many fans who’ve been wondering that very thing, now you’re in luck.
Tyler told Us Weekly she was the person he’d most like to intern with. “She’s blonde with all the hits,” the rock wild man said. “Taylor Swift. She’s hot. More than that, she’s beyond talented. I have to write a song with her.”
On Thursday’s (March 14) episode of Taste of Country Nights, host Jeremy Robinson raised the question of a possible collaboration, prompting his producer to announce, “We have uncovered a Taste of Country Nights exclusive, where Steven Tyler and Taylor have already collaborated on a song. We have an excerpt for you.”
With that, they launched into a clever mashup of the classic Aerosmith song ‘Walk This Way’ and Swift’s mega-hit ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,’ featuring the iconic guitar riff and Tyler’s epic howling against Taylor’s hiccuping vocal performance — and with a comic special guest appearance by the Screaming Goat.
If the seemingly odd couple actually do record together, will they release it under the name Tyler Swift?
