Watch as a cornered Steven Tyler stands up for country music in this Aerosmith confrontation TMZ

Steven Tyler’s not getting any country credit from Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry.

And he probably never will.

Ever since Steven chose to fly solo to Nashville to explore his country side, Joe’s made it clear that he thinks it’s all a bunch of bogus. Earlier this year, Joe caused a stir between the “Toxic Twins” during an interview with USA Today saying, “Hey, if I didn’t know him when I heard the song I’d go, ‘it’s okay, NEXT.’”

The song he’s referring to is Steven’s latest single “Red, White & You.” It was the second single of his country music career, which was released at the end of January 2016.

Now that Joe has dished about the rocker-turned-country-star, it seems like Steven is trying his best to let those snide remarks roll off of his back.

“Who doesn’t love country music?” he asks TMZ.

Then when TMZ asked about the brawl between the bandmates, Steven quipped, “That’s how they are. That’s why I’m doing the country record.”

He then goes on to say that “jealousy runs deep” in their family, but it’s clear Steven is moving on.

“He’s doing what he’s doing and I do what I do,” he says about Joe. “I got a couple of good songs going.”

Steven is expected to release a full-length country album this year via Dot Records.
