Billy Ray Cyrus
June 29, 2011 by Post Team
Billy Ray Cyrus, The idea came from a USO tour in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2009. It all started when Billy Ray Cyrus was performing to the troops on a mission to give back to those who serve our country. It began as interpretations of songs like the patriotic song from her debut album; “Some Gave All” was interrupted by the sound of the bombs in the distance.
Since that time abroad, what started, as a small tour of the house carrying an appearance on the battlefield became a concept album of 8 songs in honor of our men in uniform? Latest draft of Billy Ray Cyrus, I’m an American, is an impressive collection of patriotic country / roots-rock songs that deal with the truths, hopes and problems soldiers and their families face both overseas and at home. For Billy Ray, this collection is his “way to give back and thank them for the gift of freedom.” Tonight at the GAC at 8:30 pm ET, you can see our special BRC is called Billy Ray Cyrus: I’m American. Check out the photos of the special HERE.
“Lights of the track,” the track of the album, the opening and the first single, erupts into life with the bombastic acoustic and electric guitars supported by strong percussion. As Cyrus hoarse voice starts at the first chorus singing, “I wonder how the Yankees did tonight / I hope the grandmother doing well / I wonder what mom cooked for dinner / Gold Jane is my letter, I know how much I love her, “the poignant timbre of his voice takes on the subject of a missing pilot weight the easy riches of the house. Ciro’s voice sound good and at ease throughout the album, which brings these stories to life. In the noisy “keep the light on” the joy of a soldier returning home after a trip, the joy is contagious, like Billy Ray sings “Let’s shake the stands and to arouse the nation / I roundin “third and I’m comin ‘home! ”
Cyrus joins a choice selection of customers who accompany him on two songs on the album. Amy Grant’s voice offers a reflection on the delicate “Stripes and Stars,” a contemporary piece with piano sounds very crisp and produced a rolling guitar line. In this case, the husband and wife to find answers in the symbolism of the American flags when it comes to the fight of his long service periods. “It’s hard to believe I’m being all you can be,” Cyrus sings before his character is his sense of hard work on old glory. And a new version of “Some Gave All,” the last song of the collection, Cyrus joins Jamey Johnson, Craig Morgan, and Darryl Worley – all of whom are veterans. The feeling is genuine and pure, when all four sing harmony, “gave everybody something, Some Gave All / some were through / red, white and blue, and some had to fall.”
The issues here are very heavy. “We fought hard,” tells the story of two brothers who served, one of which has to tell his mother about his courageous brother fell in battle. “Nineteen” pays tribute to a soldier killed in that age and wonder what might have done in life if he had not enlisted. However, these stories tell the truth sometimes is too familiar to many of us, and Cyrus does an admirable job in tribute to them.
