This is a live performance by the original artist of the much covered '50s classic "I Can't Stop Loving You"
I'd say the song reference was certainly deliberately chosen - this song has found its way into all genres. It's from the formative years of the Pop-influenced but Country-distinct "Nashville Sound", that gave the industry it's path to commercial survival and success (Honour it, yes, but, in my view, it's a shame that so many Country enthusiasts seem to want to "live their lives in dreams of yesterday")
Can someone please pm me a link? All the videos I have found have been taken down. I plan on purchasing it when it is released. thanks in advance

Ok so Aerosmith has a concert in Nashville December 13th. Carrie has off that night and her tour cities are only an hour from Nashville by plane the day before and after. hmmm
I suppose she could make a surprise appearance to do the duet there.
but I really hope we get some performers announced soon for the AMAs. I still think that is where the duet will be debuted.
I wish we would get the Grammy noms performers too.
Interview from 'Another Dimension' with Aerosmith bassist Tom*Hamilton « Interviews « PureGrainAudio.com
Both, of course, Jack Douglas-produced albums. Another interesting thing about Music From Another Dimension is that you've gone out on a limb and done a song with country singer, Carrie Underwood. The "old school fans" will probably criticize you left, right and center for having done this and the younger more radio friendly audience will think it’s fantastic. So, how was it working with her?
Tom: When that song was written... Without anybody sitting down and saying, "let’s write a country song." It went in that direction. Country is obviously a big part of rock n’ roll... country, gospel and the blues.
And she’s the biggest Country star.
Tom: She’s amazing. She makes great records and sings her ass off. She really is the real thing. What happened is that song ("Can’t Stop Loving You") took on that feel and we got very close to being done with the album. Steven heard that she was in town and he snuck out without telling anybody and brought her into the studio one night. It was supposed to be a night off and they recorded that vocal. We had talked about the idea many times before, but I thought, "she's great and I think it would be awesome, but is that the only thing that people will pay attention to?" We’re trying to make this major rock statement here and why risk it by skewing the attention that way? That was just me over thinking. In the end it came out really good and it’s a really good piece of music. I’m glad it’s on there and I hope people look at it as an example of our potential range as opposed to us stabbing out into other genres.
This is the Carrie part. Please click the link for entire article.
More praise for our girl!Tom: She’s amazing. She makes great records and sings her ass off. She really is the real thing.
Nice to see that the other members of Aerosmith are as impressed with Carrie as Steven is! I love that this was such a spur of the moment thing, with Carrie just happening to be in town and Steven sneaking her in to do the vocal. Haha
Thanks Ann for sharing.
Question: The leaked song of Carrie & Steven.................. OFFICIAL VERSION OR DEMO? :O
It would be a damn good demo. But yes, I hope there's more room for Joe soloing.
