American Idol judge Steven Tyler always had a cozy relationship with Lauren Alaina, the season 10 Idol runner-up who lost to Scotty McCreery. In fact, he's such a fan of hers that he tapped her to sing on a song that's expected to show up on Music from Another Dimension, the upcoming album by his band Aerosmith.
Lauren contributed backing vocals to a song called "Oh Yeah," and she says, "I don't know if it's gonna be on the album or not 'cause they're making final decisions, but the fact that I got to go in the studio with Aerosmith, that's fine with me. I mean, who gets to say that? Not many people."
Steven Tyler was actually in the studio with Lauren when she recorded her part for the album. "He's really awesome, and he's a buddy of mine," Lauren says. "So, I get to say Steven Tyler's my friend. So, pretty lucky."
Aerosmith's album, Music from Another Dimension, is due out August 28, and a few reports indicate fellow Idol alum Carrie Underwood may be contributing her voice to the project too.
