Billy Ray Cyrus Releases New Video “Thin Line”

Billy Ray Cyrus has released a music video for his current single, “Thin Line.”

“Thin Line” was shot entirely on Cyrus’ expansive property in Middle Tenn. by director Blake Judd (Black Stone Cherry, Shooter Jennings, Thomas Rhett) and exposes faith, passion, and the power of music through Cyrus’ perspective. The music video offers viewers a peek into Cyrus’ southern home as he wanders through the spaces that flood with memories and the prized possessions in which inspire him—including a handwritten note from Johnny Cash in 1992.

“Thirty-six years ago I was working with Elvis and saw him take the same kind of flak you’re taking now. Congratulations on the way you’re handling it all. In your case, as in Elvis’, the good outweighs the bad. Let ’em have it. I’m in your corner.” – Johnny Cash

Cyrus shares the creative process that crafted the title track to his 14th studio album, released earlier this month through Blue Cadillac Music, in behind-the-scenes footage here. Thin Line is now available at major digital retailers, including iTunes and Amazon.

In addition, Cyrus recently wrapped season one of CMT’s scripted comedy, “Still The King,” in which he starred. Season two begins production in Nashville this fall and is slated to premiere in the spring.

billy-ray

Country singer-songwriter and entertainer Billy Ray Cyrus has released his 14th studio album, Thin Line, through Blue Cadillac Music.  Thin Line is now available at major digital retailers, including iTunes and Amazon. Thin Line is what Cyrus describes as, “How I live my life; it’s a balance between art and reality,” and thought it was the appropriate title as it summarizes the album content.

“This project was going to be a tribute album to my favorite songwriters and artists,” said Cyrus, hence the amount of classic Highwayman ballads. “But it transformed into more than that.”

The much anticipated full-length album consists of 15 tracks and features collaborations with talent like Joe Perry on the Don Williams classic “Tulsa Time,” harmonies from Shelby Lynne as well as Shooter Jennings as a producer and performer on tracks “Killing the Blues” and on his father’s “I’ve Always Been Crazy.”

Cyrus’ children are also present on the project; Braison Cyrus in honor of the late Merle Haggard with “Going Where the Lonely Go” and Miley Cyrus who close out the album with a musical prayer.

Simultaneously, CMT has announced that Cyrus’ hit comedy series, “Still The King,” has been added to the network for a second season to launch this spring. Cyrus stars as “Burnin’” Vernon Brown, a one-hit-wonder country artist who emerges decades later as an Elvis impersonator. After a drunken accident into a church sign, Brown is sentenced to perform community service for the church as part of his parole. He pretends to be the congregation’s new minister in attempt to reconnect with a former one-night-stand (Joey Lauren Adams), when he learns he has a 15-year-old daughter (Madison Iseman) he’s never met.

The series of projects in which have been exploited this year by Cyrus have been acknowledged by and featured in Closer Weekly, Entertainment Focus, Sounds Like Nashville, SPIN, USA Today and People.

Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus Are Making Their Marriage Work After Two Near Divorces

Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus

After 25 years together Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife Tish have had their fair share of ups and downs, but the secret to their longstanding marriage is simple.

“It’s like everything in life,” says Billy Ray, 54. “You take it one step at a time. One day at a time. I think one of the most important things in life and in a relationship is, you make adjustments.”

When the pair first met in 1991, Billy Ray was a homeless musician living out of his car. “It wasn’t pretty,” he says of his life at the time.

They wed in 1993 and had daughter Miley, now 23, Braison, 22, and Noah, 16. Billy Ray also adopted Brandi, 29, and Trace, 27, from Tish’s previous relationship. (Billy Ray has a third son, Christopher, 24, from another relationship.)

In 2010 he filed for divorce, but five months later he called off the split. Then in 2013 Tish filed for divorce, but the couple again rekindled a month later.

“Life is a series of adjustments, and you just try to do the best you can,” says Cyrus. “Like if you are going to park your car in a parallel spot and you start backing up and you don’t quite fit in, you have to back it up a little bit. But barring any unforeseen catastrophe if you make the right adjustments you will get in the spot. That’s about it. Life is a series of adjustments.”

The series is currently reaching nearly 4.5 million viewers each week.

“Working on the series has been a career highlight,” said executive producer and star Billy Ray Cyrus. “Thanks to the fans for embracing these crazy characters and all of their beautiful flaws. We’re going to take this mess to a whole new level next season.”

“The success of ‘Still The King’ is a wonderful start for our move into scripted programming,” said Jayson Dinsmore, EVP of development for CMT. “Both charming and irreverent, this series is like nothing else on television and we can’t wait to continue the journey.”

“Still The King” features Billy Ray Cyrusas Vernon Brown, AKA “Burnin’ Vernon,” a scandal-ridden washed up one-hit wonder who is kicked out of country music, only to emerge 20 years later as the second best Elvis impersonator. After crashing into an old country church outside of Nashville during a drunken bender, he is sentenced to return and perform community service. Instead, he pretends to be the congregation’s new minister and re-connects with a former one-night-stand (Joey Lauren Adams), only to discover he has a 15-year-old daughter he’s never met (Madison Iseman).

The series is part of CMT’s most diverse programming line-up to date, featuring a mix of scripted programs (including the forthcoming premieres of “Nashville” and “Million Dollar Quartet”), unscripted series (including “I Love Kellie Pickler,” “Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders: Making The Team,” and “Broken Skull Challenge”), original documentaries (including the forthcoming premiere of “The Bandit”) and music events (including “CMT Music Awards,” “CMT Artists of the Year,” and the forthcoming “CMT Concert of the Summer”).
