Billy Ray Cyrus will reprise his role as Judd Ridge (best name ever, by the way) on ’90210′ tonight (May 1). You can watch a 30-second teaser clip from the teen sudser of Cyrus as Ridge, who looks the part of good ol’ boy through and through as he soundchecks.

Here’s a little backstory to catch you up: ’90210′ character Adrianna is hoping to launch a country career, and she looks to share the stage with Ridge as a way to springboard her way into recognition and success. Cyrus, as Ridge, says that “half of Nashville” will be watching the performance, so he and Adrianna will have to put 200 percent into it. Uh, talk about applying the pressure! Nevertheless, Judd Ridge oozes confidence — we can tell from just a half-minute of previewed screen time.

While ’90210′ is a show that fans of Cyrus’ teen queen daughter Miley are likely more into, his country fans should most definitely tune in, as he will perform his new song ‘Hillbilly Heart.’ The episode airs at 8 PM ET on the CW network tonight. Don’t miss it, Billy Ray devotees! And watch the clip below, which exclusively premiered via Ryan Seacrest’s site.
