Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is rumoured to be releasing a country album.

Billboard reports that Tyler will sign to the Big Machine Label Group, home to Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw, for an album that could be out as soon as November this year.

Tyler lives in Nashville, where the label is based, and is said to be writing with top country songwriters including those behind hits are artists including Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Eric Church. No producer has been confirmed for the project.

Aerosmith were forced to axe a number of gigs in 2014 as previously reported. The US rockers cancelled a gig in Concord, California in August due to "illness". Reports at the time suggested that drummer Joey Kramer had heart complications and would require heart surgery.

The band covered The Beatles' 'Come Together' as they headlined Download Festival in June 2014, their most recent British live date.
