While Billy Ray Cyrus shares the No. 1 song on all music streaming platforms worldwide with the remix of Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road," Cyrus is equally excited about the release of his long-planned album, The SnakeDoctor Circus.

Multi-media entertainment icon, Billy Ray Cyrus, will release his new studio album, The SnakeDoctor Circus via BMG. The SnakeDoctor Circus, a concept record, features Cyrus’ longtime collaborator and songwriting mentor, Don Von Tress. It’s a full circle moment for Cyrus because Von Tress wrote the multi-platinum smash “Achy Breaky Heart” on Cyrus' record-breaking debut album Some Gave All. Cyrus penned "Some Gave All" about a Vietnam veteran in 1989 only to meet Von Tress, whom is also a Vietnam veteran, a few years later. The collaboration between the two songwriting titans more than 25 years ago continues with new music on The SnakeDoctor Circus.
