New Door Records (2006)

Mention the name Billy Ray Cyrus and most people would think 'Achy Breaky Heart', but with country rock being big business in the US this CD is miles away from that - and could be one of my favourite albums of the year.

'I Want My Mullet Back' is a tongue in cheek rocker that is somewhere between Lynyrd Skynyrd and the lighter side of Poison, whilst throughout the album there are moments reminiscent of the country elements of the Rolling Stones, particularly on 'The Man' and 'Lonely Wins'- which is the best track on the CD.

'Hey Daddy' is a poignient tribute to Billy Rays Dad (who recently died from cancer), 'Country Music Has The Blues' features country legends George Jones and Loretta Lynn. There is even a full blown tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd 'The Freebird Fell' - co written by Skynyrds Ed King and Artimus Pyle, and bonus track 'A Pain In The Gas' is a political track relating to oil, petrol and the various taxes and issues involved.
