Trail of Tears

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Billy Ray Cyrus

The surprise on Billy Ray Cyrus’ fourth album comes from his own material: Trail of Tears is a rapidly maturing, bleeding-heart blend of roots rock and country classics wrapped in bare-bones production. Some may still consider Cyrus to be a one-hit wonder, but there’s wit behind his wiggle: the brooding Celtic-influenced ”Need a Little Help” and bluegrass-based title song should finally make him an artistic contender.
