Global superstar and singer/songwriter, Billy Ray Cyrus, appeared during the MTV VMA Awards where he was nominated in 8 categories. The record-shattering powerhouse from Flatwoods, Kentucky is also humbly celebrating another honor for "Old Town Road, the Billy Ray Cyrus remix." The 19-week Billboard all-genre Hot 100 No. 1 hit is among former President Barack Obama's summer 2019 playlist.

"I've been on some lists before but never one quite like this one! Thank you Mr. President, Michelle, and the girls, Malia and Sasha. Seems like only yesterday at your second inaugural Miley joined me on "Ready Set Don't Go." Now you have your own show on Netflix and I get to watch you. Congratulations! Keep up the great work for our world. Also, if you still have some friends at G7 please tell them the rainforest fire needs help today. It’s so devastating. Proud to be part of #44!" said Cyrus.

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 19 consecutive weeks. Returning to his Kentucky roots, BBR Music Group/BMG released Cyrus's new single on July 19 with emerging artist Johnny McGuire titled, "Chevys and Fords," which Rolling Stone Country proclaimed is "a gently rocking country tune brimming with Springsteen-inspired, vehicle-based nostalgia...finds the two vocalists singing about how they come from a long line of Chevys and Fords.'"
