Global entertainment icon Billy Ray Cyrus is closing out 2021 with two hit songs, in two different genres on four charts and, tonight, will deliver a rousing "Blue Christmas" performance during CMT's A Tennessee Kind of Christmas, which will air at 8 p.m. CST on CMT. Cyrus will be joined by a lineup of legendary country artists all celebrating the season by sharing holiday traditions, memories and songs in this festive special. Additional artists to appear include Pam Tillis, Steve Wariner, Wynonna, Amy Grant, Clay Walker, Sara Evans, and Tracy Lawrence.
Cyrus launched into 2021 with his "rippy, atmospheric ballad (Rolling Stone)" by releasing "New Day" with Australian artist, FIREROSE, which is currently at 42 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart and 44 on Mediabase's Hot Adult Contemporary Chart.
This Fall, Cyrus tapped into his Appalachian roots with Bobby and Teddy Cyrus on "Roll That Rock," which is currently at No. 8 on The Bluegrass Jamboree Chart and The Gospel Weekly Top 12 Chart.
