Billy Ray Cyrus to perform next Sunday prior to Sprint Cup race at Fontana

Mar 16, 2014, 1:19 PM EDT

Billy Ray Cyrus in his mullet days. Billy Ray Cyrus in his mullet days.

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).

      No, he’s got more class then that.

      Billy Ray has a full appreciation of the country music business he makes his living from.

      People like to joke about the guy but he’s a real decent fellow.

      The record business got to his daughter and just ruined her.

      Sad too because the girl didn’t need to turn herself into a teen porn start to sell records.

      I’d bet the Cyrus southern family get togethers are real fun now.
