Bobby Cyrus Homeplace

Country Artist Bobby Cyrus To Release Debut Album, Homeplace, May 21

 “Send Me Wings” To Be Released To Country Radio In Coming Weeks
(Nashville, Tenn. – May 1, 2013) BGC Records/GMV Nashville artist Bobby Cyrus will release his debut album, Homeplace, on May 21 through all major digital retailers, including iTunes and Amazon.
The album features 13 tracks, nine of which were written or
co-written by the singer. Produced by renowned vocalist and Bluegrass
musician, Don Rigsby, the album features special guest appearances by, Bobby’s cousin, Billy Ray Cyrus on “Milkman’s Eyes,” and Country legend, Tom T. Hall on the track “A Rose For Marie.”
“Since the day I picked up my first guitar this is the music I have
always wanted to create,” explained Cyrus. “I thank God for giving me
the gift of rhythm and rhyme and a special thank you to all those who
believed in me enough to help make this dream come true. I am truly a
blessed man.”
The title of the release borrows its namesake from the Cyrus family
abode in rural Kentucky. A well-loved dwelling and place of tenderness
and growth for generations of Cyrus’.  The home’s symbolism serves as
ongoing inspiration to Cyrus and as a motif for the album.
The final track of the record is a humble, warm-hearted poem. Written by Bobby’s father, Bob Cyrus,
the story centers around the family life on their home in Louisa, KY.
Until his passing, Bobby’s father performed the poem at the family’s
annual get together, a duty that has been bestowed upon Bobby.
Additionally, its familial sincerity serves as the essence behind the
title track and a theme throughout the album.  
In February, Cyrus became the official spokesperson of the National
Walking Horse Association (NWHA). The singer will team up with the
association, performing at select events across the country as part of
his 2013 “NWHA Tour” and expressing his support for the associations
cause. Founded in 1998, The National Walking Horse Association, located
at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, is a group of
dedicated horse owners and enthusiasts committed to preserving and
promoting the naturally-gaited walking horse and its welfare.  Cyrus is
scheduled to appear at a series of public NWHA events in the coming
months, meeting fans, signing merchandise and advocating his passion for
walking horses.
A former heavy-machinery sales and management executive in the coal
mining and construction industry of eastern Kentucky, Bobby Cyrus grew
up immersed in the sounds of bluegrass and traditional Country music. 
Cyrus credits artists like Waylon Jennings, Ricky Skaggs, Larry Cordle,
Kris Kristofferson, Keith Whitley and Tom T. Hall as some of the key
influences that helped define his songwriting and musical style.  Cyrus
released “Milkman’s Eyes” (featuring his cousin Billy Ray Cyrus) in Nov.
