Billy Ray Cyrus, he of Achy Breaky Heart fame, will likely sing that song and several others next Sunday in a pre-race concert prior to the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway.
Cyrus will take the O’Reilly Auto Parts Fan Zone main stage at 10 a.m. PT, about 2 ½ hours before the race starts on the massive two-mile Southern California track.
Hard as it may seem to believe, the Flatwoods, Ky., native has sold more than 25 million albums/CDs globally and has had three No. 1 hit singles, including “Achy.”
But let’s hope for two things that Cyrus doesn’t do in his concert:
1 That he doesn’t start twerking like daughter Miley.
2 He doesn’t play the hip-hop version of “Achy” – known as “Achy Breaky 2″ – that was released last month by Cyrus and rapper Buck 22 (video below – if you’re brave enough to watch it).
