Goddess of Democracy
Cyrus recently released “Goddess of Democracy,” a thought-provoking ballad that washes fluidly over current events of the day (Country Rebel). The song’s earnest growl, driving piano-based arrangement and on-topic lyrics bring home the track’s timely message (Parade).
“Now is the time to let your voice be heard,” said Cyrus. “This is how you be the change you want to see. Democracy. People have lived for it. Others have died for it. It’s the foundation our country stands on. That’s what ‘Goddess of Democracy’ is all about.”
While the event is free, attendees must RSVP online. For those unable to attend, you can follow updates from the event by using #partyatthepolls.
Throughout the course of nearly three decades, Cyrus has achieved worldwide success as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer. The Flatwoods, Kentucky native exploded onto the music scene when his first album, Some Gave All, debuted on the all-genre Billboard album charts at No. 1 and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992.
His lead single, “Achy Breaky Heart,” became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum. Some Gave All also went on to sell 9 million copies. Along the way, Cyrus charted 35 singles, 16 of which are Top 40 hits, including “Could’ve Been Me,” “Where’m Gonna Live When I Get Home,” “She’s Not Cryin,” “Some Gave All,” “Ready, Set, Don’t Go” and many more.
Cyrus has also enjoyed a successful career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney series “Hannah Montana” with his daughter Miley Cyrus. This fall, Cyrus will release his new album, The SnakeDoctor Circus, a collaboration with legendary, all-star musicians, including Muscle Shoals Swampers, Don Von Tress and many more.
