NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Billy Ray Cyrus is celebrating democracy with national television appearances on ABC News’ “The Briefing Room” and CNN’s HLN “On the Story” as he discusses his passion to get out the vote, and make sure Native Americans have tribal IDs. Cyrus also opened up about his global hit, “Goddess of Democracy,” including a new version he recently released with Tyler Hilton. To download and stream “Goddess of Democracy,” click HERE.
Cyrus returned from North Dakota earlier this week where he performed for a packed house at Turtle Mountain Tribal Community College Sunday night. Actor Mark Ruffalo and native entertainers joined Cyrus while tribal council staff provided four machines on site to make new identification cards for those who did not have street addresses on their IDs. Overall, officials said more than 2,000 new voters are registered in this election.
Leading up to Election Day, Cyrus will be heard every day on SiriusXM’s Prime Country Ch. 58 as he delivers a dynamic LIVE performance of his iconic songs as well as “Goddess of Democracy.” (Upcoming air dates listed below.)

The country music icon also recently joined Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell & Amanda Shires, Lucie Silvas, Jonathan McReynolds and Gabriel Kelly for Party at the Polls. The Ascend Amphitheater event, presented by WME and Endeavor Impact, encouraged voter turnout.
Amid the tense political climate and the assault on freedom of speech and the press, Cyrus released “Goddess of Democracy,” the first single off his forthcoming album The SnakeDoctor Circus (set for release in 2019), on all digital music platforms after overwhelming demand on YouTube.
“Goddess of Democracy” is a thought-provoking ballad that washes fluidly over current events of the day (Country Rebel). The song’s earnest growl, driving piano-based arrangement and on-topic lyrics bring home the track’s timely message (Parade).
