Billy Ray Cyrus Releases "Hillbilly Heart" To Country Radio
By: Alanna Conaway
This week (January 28), Billy Ray Cyrus gave fans a nice little treat with the release of his latest single from his Change My Mind album titled “Hillbilly Heart.”The new tune was penned by the singer as a tribute to some of country music’s iconic singers who helped shape Cyrus’ music, highlighting his 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!"
In addition to the song titled “Hillbilly Heart,” Cyrus is also working on a memoir by the same name that he is aiming for a release this coming April, followed by a worldwide tour later this year.
