Nineteen – Billy Ray Cyrus
The Story of Nineteen
Billy Ray Cyrus loves the people of America. He’s always made it one of the forefront topics of his songs to sing about the hard working folks that make up what America really is.
With [easyazon-link asin=”B0056D45C0″]Nineteen[/easyazon-link] Cyrus sings about a high school football player. The guy heads off to join the Marines. He has a sense of dedication to protect his brothers and sisters. He’s keeping his head down and doing what he’s told no matter what.
The song is about courage, fighting for your fellow Marines, and laying it all on the line for someone else. It’s a moving song with lyrics that make you think about sacrifice and what you may have done in the past to be like the kid in the song.
The song moves along at a medium tempo. It keeps a somber sound throughout and makes you think about the kid that wore number 19 at the football games. He could have been so much here back at home, but he went off overseas and came back with medals and military honors.
Billy Ray Cyrus Ongoing Music Career
To say that Billy Ray Cyrus’ career has been interesting would be an understatement. He came from nowhere to sell nearly 10 million copies of his debut album. He is best known as a one-hit wonder, but more seasoned country fans know he’s had 10 top 20 hits on the country charts. That’s quite a career for most country singers.
It’s been about 20 years since Billy Ray first came on the country scene. He’s been releasing albums pretty steadily since and while his sales numbers have tapered off of late he’s still putting out good music.
To me that shows Billy Ray loves making country music. And he’s driven even more by what he believes in like God and Country. With this latest album and single Billy Ray is singing about the things that have always made him passionate about music.
A song like [easyazon-link asin=”B0056D45C0″]Nineteen[/easyazon-link] can mean different things to different people. The song brings the emotion out in people. It’s powerful. The passion comes through when Billy sings about the young kid in the song. That’s what country fans are looking for.
Billy Ray seems to have always gone back to music when things in his life were going a little of course. He’s managed to keep a dedicated group of fans behind his every move. Through all the Hollywood trials and the family issues he seems to still be strong.
I’m not sure if the latest single will be a hit. It probably won’t be in the traditional sense, but to Billy Ray I don’t think it means as much these days. He’s making music he loves and making it for the community of folks that love him.
That’s what important and that’s why Billy Ray Cyrus is a success story in 2011.

Summer Perea says
The song Nineteen brought me to tears. This song hits home to so many. Not only am I a daughter & Grandaughter of Veterans with so many friends & family serving now or Vets of the Gulf war I’m also Mom of three girls that are involved in the VFW Junior Girls Post 3008. These girls raise $ to send packages to our troops over seas, they bake cookies for them @ Christmas, they send get well cards to those that are wounded, they send cards at all the holidays along with packages. They just made a trip to Washington DC to pay respects to veterans as well as learn more about what we stand for. Songs like this are ones that show others care to! God Bless and Thank You for making something so important yet so simple into a beautiful song that can touch millions. You are a wonderful person.
