Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus is recording a Hip Hop remix to his 1992 platinum single, “Achy Breaky Heart.” The singer is already casting models for the song’s forthcoming video, according to radaronline.com.
“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,” the site reports.
The release date of the single has not be announced.
Last Tuesday (December 31), Larry King tweeted about the remix.

Billy Ray Cyrus is the father of Miley Cyrus, who was featured with Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J on Mike WiLL Made-It’s “23” single last year. In 2013, she also twerked at the MTV Video Music Awards and at a Juicy J concert in Los Angeles.
Mike WiLL said that criticism for Miley Cyrus is unwarranted and that she will likely be criticized for anything that she does because of the level of success she has obtained.
“People are going to hate,” Mike WiLL said. “A lot of times, it’s the media that is hating and not the real people, the real people are saying, ‘What’s the big deal?’ Anything she does, if she claps her hands three times they will say, ‘Oh man, why didn’t she clap four times?’ If she came out to the [MTV] VMAs and she wasn’t twerking and she wasn’t doing all that, everybody would’ve said, ‘Oh she was supposed to twerk. Why didn’t she twerk? She’s not real.’ They would shoot her down regardless because she is successful.”
