who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice. The internationally renowned
superstar recently dedicated a performance of “Some Gave All” on the
Grand Ole Opry to 1st Lt. Weston C. Lee, who was killed when an
improvised explosive device detonated during his patrol in Mosul, Iraq.
Lee died serving our country and we should all be forever grateful for
his service. I dedicated “Some Gave All” on the Opry for Lee and all
those who haven’t returned home,” Cyrus said.
May 28, Cyrus will return to Washington, D.C. to perform during Rolling
Thunder for Freedom events. Rolling Thunder is one of the world’s
largest motorcycle rallies to honor fallen servicemen and women.
is a full-circle moment, because a week after “Some Gave All” came out,
I stood at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall during Rolling Thunder
with Don Von Tress, who is not only the writer of “Achy Breaky Heart,”
but also a Vietnam veteran. That man and that song changed my life. And
now 25 years later, I’ll return to the wall and perform “Some Gave All”
and “Achy Breaky Heart” and honor those veterans who gave all to their
country,” Cyrus said.
Ray Cyrus recently appeared on “Entertainment Tonight,” “The Insider,”
HLN’s “MichaeLA,” “Dish Nation,” Billboard.com, “Song Talks with Richard
Marx,” Yahoo Music’s “Backspin,” “Young Hollywood” and more to
celebrate the 25th anniversary re-issue of “Achy Breaky Heart.”
