Light-hearted song and video feature appearances from cousin Billy Ray Cyrus; video now airing on GAC
The up-tempo track is a cleverly written, tongue-in-cheek duet recorded
with Cyrus’ cousin Billy Ray, who co-wrote the song and also appears in
the music video. The two cousins had performed the song a handful of
times together over the years before Bobby chose to release it as the
debut single from his upcoming album, Homeplace.
“Bobby is a great vocalist,” says Billy Ray. “He’s got a great voice. I
felt honored that he chose to cut ‘Milkman’s Eyes.’ I’m so proud of
Bobby and the sound he’s got going. It’s got a family blend to it.”
The “Milkman’s Eyes” music video was directed by award-winning
filmmaker John Lloyd Miller. The clip world premiered Oct. 25 on Great
American Country’s “Daily Countdown” program and airs again this Friday,
Nov. 9, at 4:30 ET on GAC’s “Out of the Box” segment. The
light-hearted video includes appearances from both Cyrus cousins and
demonstrates the fun-loving chemistry the two singers share between
“Billy Ray worked really hard and took time out of his
extremely busy life to be a part of this single and video,” says Bobby
Cyrus, who wrote seven of the 12 tracks on Homeplace. “Words could never express how much his efforts mean to me.”
“Milkman’s Eyes” is currently available here on iTunes, as well as GMVNashville.com and most other major digital music retailers. Cyrus’ debut album, Homeplace, is set for release before the end of the year. For more information, visit www.BobbyCyrusOfficial.com.
