Product Overview

To say that singer/songwriter Billy Ray Cyrus has just completed the most important album of his life might sound far-fetched considering that his 1992 debut, Some Gave All, sold nine million copies and topped the pop charts for a record-smashing 17 weeks. But the unpredictable Flatwoods, Kentucky-native is set to pleasantly surprise fans new and old with a deeply inspired eleventh album of hard-hitting songs titled Back to Tennessee. "My purpose in life is to reflect an image of meaning and inspiration," Billy Ray says, "and to make music that touches people in deep and lasting ways."

Billed as one of Billy Ray Cyrus's most personal albums, BACK TO TENNESSEE finds the achey-breaky star of screen and country music stage mining a somewhat retro vein. "Real Gone" is straight-up 1970's-style rock, powered by a big guitar riff right out of the Foghat songbook, while "Back to Tennessee"'s soaring backing vocals and catchy melodies recall classic soft rock. On "Somebody Said a Prayer" Cyrus's weathered vocals are a good match for the song's spiritually uplifting message. Throughout, Billy Ray delivers a unique blend of old and new, forging a country style that is steeped in the purest pop, yet retains an earthy edge.
Professional Reviews
Billboard (p.28) - "[A] solid testament to Cyrus' staying power....Highlights include 'Somebody Said a Prayer,' a powerful statement about belief in a higher power, and 'Love Is the Lesson'..."
