[photogallerylink id=56635 align=right] Thankfully it seems that [lastfm link_type=""]Billy Ray Cyrus[/lastfm] has gotten things, like his personal life, back in order.  So what’s a fellow to do?  He’s putting his energy back into his music. Cyrus has got a new patriotic album entitled I’m American due out today.

Here’s Billy Ray on how he got inspired to create his patriotic album: “It was during a performance in Afghanistan on Some Gave All when some bombs went off in the background, a young soldier stood up and said, ‘Keep going Mr. Cyrus. We’re used to it. At that moment, I knew that I felt like I was going to come back and record Some Gave All and start an entire album on a concept that was based solely on taking my hat off and saluting our troops.” And what’s Billy Ray got to say about the album’s remake of Achy Breaky Heart which features [lastfm link_type=""]Jamey Johnson[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=""]Craig Morgan[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type=""]Darryl Worley[/lastfm]: “Three guys that not only are they veterans themselves, but they also just sing with their voices and the power and the realism that they put into the song. For me as the writer, to hear them sing it was just absolutely an awesome experience.”
