While Billy Ray Cyrus shares the Number One song on all music streaming platforms worldwide with the remix of Lil Nas X‘s “Old Town Road,” he is equally excited about the release of his long-planned album, The SnakeDoctor Circus. The concept record has been in the works for a while, and it will be released on May 24th.
Billy Ray said, “Life is a series of adjustments. I’ve been working on this album, The SnakeDoctor Circus, for more than two years now. In January this year, my label, BMG, had planned and scheduled the release of this album May 24. Twenty-seven days ago, I heard a song from Lil Nas X and felt the injustice of the way he was being treated. You just don’t pull the rug out from under someone like that. He impacted a worldwide psyche and touched a universal harmony. That’s when I made the adjustment in my schedule, went to the studio, wrote a new verse and sang on ‘Old Town Road’ with Lil Nas X.”
The “Achy Breaky Heart” singer recorded The SnakeDoctor Circus in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
