Multi-Platinum recording artist Billy Ray Cyrus celebrated the 4th of July with America’s favorite pastime as he performed the National Anthem at the LA Dodgers home game versus the Cincinnati Reds yesterday. In salute to our troops, the country music singer/songwriter also performed “God Bless America” standing alongside a few of our brave men recognizing their service overseas.
“What an honor it was to spend the 4th of July celebrating at Dodger stadium. It could not be more perfect to celebrate America with America’s favorite pastime,” shared Cyrus. “Singing both the Anthem and ‘God Bless America’ while standing right beside some of America’s true heroes – our servicemen and women – is a moment that I will never forget.”
Cyrus is currently in the studio working on a new album tentatively titled Change My Mind expected for release this fall. He is set to make his debut in the Broadway play Chicago on Nov. 5, and will continue his run through Dec. 23.
A true pop and country music phenomenon since breaking through to the mainstream with Some Gave All, Cyrus has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, and has had three No. 1 hit singles.
It has been a very long time since I saw Billy Ray on stage at our Appalachian Fair. Looking at him in these pictures from the Dodgers game, I seriously doubt I would have recognized him without the press release about the game. He’s cleaned up, and thinned down – it appears. Looking good, Billy Ray.
I will get back to you all soon!
