Tyler relocated to Nashville, Tennessee at the beginning of 2015 and he has been working with the music mecca's top songwriters on a solo album, and now The Boys of Summer hitmaker is hoping to become the latest rocker to go country.

His new album Cass County will be released later this year (15).

He says, "I’ve recorded 17 songs and I’ve been working on it for the last four or five years. It has a country flavour and I intend to record a couple more songs and then we’ll start the culling process."

Henley recorded the album in Nashville and at his home in Dallas, Texas with co-producer and co-writer Stan Lynch, Tom Petty's former drummer.
