Achy Breaky Heart 2

Single Release0 Comments

Buck 22 releases the single, Achy Breaky Heart 2, featuring Billy Ray Cyrus. Buck:

I asked Billy Ray Cyrus if he would mind if I could take a crack at remaking Achy Breaky Heart and he looked at me for a moment, and said ‘lots of people have tried already, but go for it.’ He didn’t have a clue that I had already gone into the lab and cooked up a demo of what I thought would be a fun EDM/hip-hop styled version, which at the time only had a sample from the original of his voice. He liked what he heard and, weeks later, arrived at the session to record this track.

Hope Is Just Ahead

Single Release0 Comments

Cyrus releases the single, Hope Is Just Ahead, which features vocals from Dionne Warwick.

As a singer-songwriter I’ve always tried to capture the truth and honesty of life. Sometimes it’s that moment of truth that becomes far too real and reveals the sacrifice that has been made. This song is about change. It’s about looking at our past mistakes and learning from them as a society. More than anything …it’s about ‘Hope’ and a better tomorrow…if we will only allow ourselves to believe.

Ready Set Don’t Go

Single Release0 Comments

Cyrus releases the single, Ready Set Don’t Go, from his album, Home At Last. Cyrus speaks about his daughter, Miley moving to Los Angeles:

This was a great thing for our entire family and a great opportunity. But we were quite comfortable at our farm and our kids were comfortable with their school. As Miley was leaving with the family, I reached that pivotal crossroad every parent knows will come someday – realizing my kid is growing up and I gotta let ’em leave the nest and fly.
