Recorded at Jamie Foxx’s studio in Los Angeles, a portion of the proceeds from “Hope Is Just Ahead” go to “Do The Write Thing-National Campaign to Stop Violence.” The organization helps create awareness to students on the ground level and prevent violent behavior in schools before it escalates (http://www.dtwt.org/about-dtwt).

NPR noted of his memoir Hillbilly Heart “There’s something very refreshing about Billy Ray Cyrus’ new memoir Hillbilly Heart. It’s not just that he’s candid about being, at many points throughout his life, a headstrong jerk, or, as he puts it, a ‘heathen,’ an imperfect man.”–John Rabe.
