Billy Ray Cyrus Back With Bad Grammar And Heartbreaking Honesty

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Billy Ray Cyrus will forever be associated, for better or worse, with “Achy Breaky Heart,” a song so popular, it created an over- exploited backlash for the pop country star in the early- ’90s.

But Cyrus is a survivor, if nothing else, and if he’d had loftier goals or a bigger ego, he says he wouldn’t have been able to turn that brush with megastardom into a respected gospel career and subsequent acting success on the Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana and the PAX hit, Doc.

Now, the former mullet-head namesake of his own line dance has returned with a new album that includes guest cameos by Loretta Lynn and George Jones – and some of his most heartfelt lyrics ever.

Cyrus admits, however, he didn’t think twice about an obviously ironic – and grammatically incorrect – line in his new single, “Wanna Be Your Joe,” which goes: I may not be no millionaire.

As Billy Ray explains, “I wasn’t the greatest in English class, but I’m as honest as can be in that song – so if I didn’t paint the Mona Lisa with my lyrics, that’s OK, too.”
