Billy Ray Cyrus has been in the news all year for reasons other than his career. The guy always seems to be working, though, and he’s back again with a new song. While Billy Ray hasn’t reached the heights of his initial album 20 years ago he has released some good music throughout hisc areer. This song is pretty good.
Change My Mind – Billy Ray Cyrus
You always get solid country music from Billy Ray. If you look past the Achy Breaky Heart and all the mess around his family life over the last few years you’ll realize that Billy Ray has been a really solid hit maker for much of his career. While many of his songs don’t reach the top 30 or even top 40 on the charts he has put out some really good music.
I like this song. In the video you get a taste of Billy Ray the actor. From what I can tell he’s leaving his lover and moving on to someone else. Things weren’t working out so Billy Ray decides to move on. He doesn’t want to deal with any of the BS anymore. It’s time to get out of there and live life happily instead of sticking with the status quo.
This song likely won’t hit the top of the country charts, but you’re missing out if you don’t listen to it a few times. It’s a solid country song from one of the most surprising and hark working country singers of the last twenty years. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long for Billy Ray. He’s a true hard working country singer.
