The singer, songwriter and actor will be making a special appearance during Nashville’s Country Radio Seminar and visiting radio in support of the new single.
Written by Cyrus, "Hillbilly Heart," is a smoldering, swaggering anthem that highlights the Flatwoods, KY, native’s country roots. "Let's get this party started!" says Cyrus. "I'm so excited about 'Hillbilly Heart.' I wrote this song as a tip of the hat to my pure love of country music ... past, present and future. It's a blend of my early musical roots; Outlaw Country (Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams, Jr.) mixed with my Southern rock heroes (Lynyrd Skynyrd and Charlie Daniels), all fusing together for a feel-good anthem that I can't wait to share with radio and fans!" "Hillbilly Heart" is from Cyrus’ thirteenth studio album titled Change My Mind, which Country Weekly cites as "his best album in years." Produced by the award-winning Brandon Friesen, the album was released via Blue Cadillac Music and is available now. Currently, Cyrus is putting the finishing touches on his memoir aptly tiled HILLBILLY HEART that will be releasing this April and is planning for a worldwide tour later this year.
Billy Ray Cyrus struck it big in June 1992 with his debut album, the eventual 9x-platinum-selling No. 1 Some Gave All, fueled by the best-selling single “Achy Breaky Heart,” which spent five weeks atop the Billboard Country chart. Some Gave All (which held the No. 1 spot on theBillboard Top 200 chart for 17 weeks in a row and became the best-selling debut album of all time by a male solo artist) launched Cyrus’ colorful 20-year career in the spotlight — during which he has sold millions of albums worldwide, charted nearly 30 singles (including three No. 1 country hits), and racked up multiple film and television credits.
