Billy Ray Cyrus is celebrating his birthday with the announcement of his new album Set The Record Straight, available for pre-order NOW and available everywhere November 10. Set The Record Straight features collaborations with Joe Perry, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Bryan Adams, Glenn Hughes, Jencarlos Canela, Ronnie Milsap and his daughter, Miley Cyrus.
“I’m so excited to share this collection of music. These are some of my favorite songs. Some are new and have been an intricate part of ‘Still The King’ story lines. Others are new mixes and different styles of songs that allowed me to experiment with the diversity that is so much a part of my musical being. There are some collaborations with my musical heroes and a special tribute to one of my greatest influences of all time – Ronnie Van Zant and the members of Lynyrd Skynyrd. In this being the 40-year anniversary of that tragic crash that impacted me and so many others fans around the world, I wrote and recorded ‘The Freebird Fell’,” Billy Ray Cyrus said.
Momentum will continue for Cyrus’ new album August 29 when he appears on “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” alongside his family, including Miley, Noah, Tish, Brandi, Braison and Trace during their sing-along to “Achy Breaky Heart” (Muscle Shoals Mix), which is included on Set The Record Straight. “Carpool Karaoke” will be available exclusively to Apple Music subscribers.
Fans who pre-order a physical copy will receive an autographed CD when it’s released November 10. iTunes pre-orders will get 3 instant gratis tracks, including “I Wanna Be Your Joe,” “Achy Break Heart 25th (Muscle Shoals Mix)” and “Tulsa Time (Rokman Remix).”
