I will never forget the day I first day I heard it. The whole radio station was floored. We played it over and over and knew something special was about to happen and it sure did. I am talking about the day I heard Billy Ray Cyrus sing 'Achy Breaky Heart'.
I have no problem admitting that I am a Billy Ray Cyrus fan. I have loved his voice and music from the first time I heard the album 'Some Gave All'. Billy is blowing out the candles on his birthday cake today and I thought he deserved some Colorado love on his big 55th birthday.
Miley Cyrus may be the Cyrus we hear about in the news all the time these days but there was a time when her daddy was all the rage in the music scene. Billy Ray never had to ride a wrecking ball or get buck naked to get attention. All he had to do was dance a little goofy and have a horrible mullet..but hey, we all did back then.
