Overview

Many wrote off Billy Ray Cyrus' bigger-than-life 1992 smash "Achy Breaky Heart" as a flash in the pan and dismissed Cyrus as a one-hit wonder. But the ongoing vitality of the trailblazing country hunk's recording career has proven the naysayers wrong. Cyrus' sixth album, Southern Rain, offers a winsome mix of upbeat rockers and wistful ballads, demonstrating that the artist's star quality is as strong as ever. Cyrus' sensitive side is showcased on the wistful title track, while the romantic "You Won't Be Lonely Now," "Everywhere I Wanna Be," and "I Will" make convincing cases for romantic devotion. "We the People" is a rousing anthem honoring the average working Joe, and the tongue-in-cheek "Burn Down the Trailer Park" and the sung-spoken power ballad "All I'm Thinking About Is You" show the artist's edgier, quirkier side. And the catchy bonus track "Hey Elvis" is a swaggering ode to the King of Rock 'n' Roll that sounds like a potential novelty hit of "Achy Breaky" proportions.
