Aerosmith's 'Can't Stop Lovin' You' Featuring Carrie Underwood Released To Radio This Week
Released to radio January 21, the song is in the powerful tradition of Aerosmith’s widescreen ballads and features Steven Tyler duetting with Carrie Underwood.
The decision to ask Underwood to sing on “Can’t Stop Loving You” and enhance the country flavorings was natural. Tyler and Underwood had previously duetted on a mash-up of her hit "Undo It" and Aerosmith’s "Walk This Way" at the 46th Annual Academy of Country Awards in 2011. In early 2012, the two were also paired for a CMT Crossroads special.
In an interview with Rolling Stone.com about “Can’t Stop Loving You,” Tyler said, “I sang it a little country & western…and all along we thought, should we get someone in…It was last-minute. She [Carrie] was in town doing something. I called her up and she said, 'I'm leaving tomorrow.' And I said, 'Can you come over tonight?' I called Joe [Perry] up, and the rest is history. She just did it. It really does work.”
"It's an honor to have my voice included on an Aerosmith record,” Carrie Underwood added. “I've had a blast working with Steven a number of times in the past, and this was another amazing thing we got to do together.”
