Steven Tyler documentary to premiere at Nashville Film Festival

The Steven Tyler documentary, “Out On A Limb”, will see its world premiere when it opens the 49th Nashville Film Festival on May 10.

The project traces the Aerosmith singer’s path during the creation of his 2016 debut country solo studio album, “We're All Somebody From Somewhere”, and the accompanying “Out On A Limb” tour.

Directed by Casey Tebo, the doc is billed as “an intimate portrait of the rock icon as he embraces the challenges of shifting gears, both as a solo performer and in a new genre of music. Uncovering a side of Tyler many fans have never seen before, this inspiring story looks at the passion, drive and search for creative fulfillment that keeps artists pushing boundaries throughout their careers.”

In sync with the film’s world premiere, Nashville Mayor David Briley has proclaimed May 10 as “Steven Tyler Day” in the city.

"Nashville is a key part of my musical journey and has had an influential place in my career, so this recognition from the city is a tremendous honor," says Tyler. "I'm also so touched that the Nashville Film Festival selected 'Steven Tyler: Out On A Limb' to kick off opening night of this year's event with our world premiere."

“Steven Tyler; Out On A Limb” will be released on VOD and digital HD on May 15.

In addition to the film’s premiere, Tyler will perform with Nashville-based The Loving Mary Band at The Woods at Fontanel on Saturday, May 12.

“We're All Somebody From Somewhere” scored the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart while peaking at No. 19 on the Billboard 200.

Tyler has just announced dates for a summer solo tour of North America and Europe.

The 2018 series will begin with a North American leg that starts in Lewiston, NY on June 12 and finishes in Calgary, AB on July 11, and be followed by European shows that kick off in Sion, Switzerland on July 15 and wrap up in London, UK on August 7.
