Desperate For A Comeback? Billy Ray Cyrus Records Hip Hop Remix Of ‘Achy Breaky Heart’

Is Billy Ray Cyrus taking career cues from Miley? Just months after her hip hop makeover launched her to new heights of superstardom, her dad has announced he’s going to make the move from country to the club — with a hip hop remix of “Achy Breaky Heart.” And can exclusively reveal, he’s already casting hot young video vixens for the music video!

When talk show host Larry King first broke the news on December 31, it seemed like it could be a joke. “Just spoke with @Billyraycyrus on the phone,” King tweeted. “He’s recorded a hip hop version of ‘Achy Breaky Heart.’ He’s excited about it and so am I!”

But nearly 22 years after the original version of the song topped the charts, Radar has learned, the hip hop remix is 100% a go. In fact, casting directors are already hitting up video vixens to star in the music video.

One L.A. model, who has starred in videos for urban artists including Chris Brown, tells Radar that the shoot will take place in the Los Angeles area by the end of the month.
