Steven Tyler’s emotional and soulful performance of “Amazing Grace” will have you on your feet YouTube/Screenshot

Steven Tyler always has a way of surprising us.

As of late, it’s been his arrival on the country music scene with his song “Love Is Your Name” that has shocked people the most.

That is, until now.

In this vintage performance, Tyler shows off his gospel side with a breathtaking rendition of the classic hymn “Amazing Grace” done the only way he knows how…with emotion.

Tyler has long spoken of how his faith has carried him through a number of tribulations through the years. In fact, in a recent interview with “The Bobby Bones Show,” Tyler opened up about the role that church and religion play in his current life in Nashville.

“I usually say I don’t come in here to find God – I brought him or her in here with me,” Tyler said about his experience within the church. “I walk in there and I can’t stop crying. The music, the gospel, the words, the sermon…”

As you might recall, Tyler made the jump into the country genre just a few short months ago when he signed to the Dot Records label, which falls underneath the Big Machine Label Group and is home to music titans such as Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift.
