About Billy Ray Cyrus: Billy Ray Cyrus became a household name over the course of his unprecedented career which spans across music, television and theater. Throughout his nearly three decade career, Cyrus has achieved worldwide success as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer. The Flatwoods, KY native exploded onto the music scene when his first album, Some Gave All, debuted on the all-genre Billboard album chart at No. 1 and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. The lead single, "Achy Breaky Heart," became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum. After "Achy Breaky Heart," Cyrus followed up with back to back hits “It Could’ve Been Me,” “She’s Not Crying Anymore,” “Wher'm I Gonna Live When I Get Home?” and the anthemic “Some Gave All.” Cyrus knocked himself out of the top Billboard position with the his second No. 1 album, It Won’t Be The Last, featuring smash hits “In the Heart of a Woman,” “Words By Heart” and “Somebody New.” Cyrus followed up with dozens more that defined country music. “To me, my most defining moment in country was being joined by George Jones and Loretta Lynn on my self-penned ‘Country Music Has the Blues,’” said Cyrus. He also enjoyed a successful career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney series “Hannah Montana” with his daughter Miley. Recently, Cyrus has shattered records with Lil Nas X with the global smash, "Old Town Road," which has remained No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 14 consecutive weeks.

BILLY RAY CYRUS AND LIL NAS X'S "OLD TOWN ROAD" FEATURED IN "RAMBO: LAST BLOOD" TRAILER

Lionsgate unleashed a new trailer featuring Billy Ray Cyrus and Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" to promote the release of "Rambo: Last Blood," starring Sylvester Stallone.

The trailer's release coincides with the eighth consecutive week "Old Town Road" rules the No. 1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 and boasts the second-biggest streaming week ever following the May 17 premiere of the official video.

Three years before "Old Town Road," Cyrus began planning his passion project, The SnakeDoctor Circus, with his longtime musical soulmate, Don Von Tress. The concept album, which "employs some fanciful allegorical imagery to make a very serious real-life point" (Taste of Country)," is available now via BMG.

Billboard compared Cyrus' performance of “I’ve Been Around” on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” as a "powerful Johnny Cash-like ballad."

A Word From The Country Music Cruise Executive Producer Mike Jason

I just got back from Nashville where I spent a few days listening to great music and catching up with some cruise friends from Texas, Louisiana, West Virginia and Oklahoma. We were able to celebrate the six special years together of friendship, country music and some great food. Early afternoon saw us starting out at Robert’s, AJs and one or two of the other lower Broadway venues. I love the smaller afternoon crowds and the chance to hang with the artists after the set. The beautiful thing about country music is that a set is just as likely to include Hank Williams or Johnny Cash as it is to include Luke Bryan or George Strait. Of course, the group had some great steak dinners and caught an Opry show that featured Mark Wills and Steve Wariner, just to name a few. It’s nice to take a moment to scout out potential talent for future Country Music Cruises, especially in such an important area to the spirit of country music. We are nearing over 80% sold and we are heading toward our 7th consecutive sell-out! The fun part of the job-scheduling performances and events has gained some serious momentum. We’ve laid out most of the initial music performances by day, by time and by venue. And, we are excited to announce our newest lineup addition to The Country Music Cruise 2020—Exile, and of course our Elvis Tribute Artists will be back. Along with all of the events that our fans have come to know and love, this year, they will bring us a few tribute shows to some classic country artists for us to enjoy. Until then, I hope touring season allows you to catch one of your favorite artists shows on a lawn outdoors and that you’ll join us as we see them perform for us as we sail the Caribbean next January. - Mike Jason, Executive Producer

In the animation, Cyrus "portrays a sleepy-eyed mini-mart worker who is always under fire from his not-cool boss...it’s a surreal video, with Doobie Ray Cyrus running afoul of his boss (also a bud) at the convenience store where he works and hitting the road" (Rolling Stone Country).

The long-planned release of Billy Ray Cyrus' new studio album, The SnakeDoctor Circus, is available for pre-order now from BMG. Fans will receive three tracks upon pre-ordering, including "Guns, Gold & Guitars," "Goddess of Democracy" and "Angel in my Pocket"
