William Ray Cyrus begint met zijn broer een band, Sly Dog. Als hij in het voorprogramma speelt van Reba McEntire wordt hij ontdekt en krijgt hij een platencontract bij Mercury. Van zijn debuutalbum Some Gave All komt Achy Breaky Heart in 1992 in de Top 40 terecht en daarmee scoort Billy Rae Cyrus ook meteen zijn grootste hit in ons land. Daarna volgden met Could’ve Been Me en These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ nog twee hits.


Eind jaren negentig nemen de country-hits die hij in de Verenigde Sten scoort in aantal af en hij legt zich daarna toe op acteerwerk voor tv en theater.


Als Old Town Road, een single van Lil Nas X, wordt verwijderd uit de Amerikaanse countrylijst besluit hij te helpen door zijn stem toe te voegen op een remix van het nummer.


Songtekst


I hear you just got married
Had a month long honeymoon
And you were all smiles at the wedding
And you cried when you kissed the groom

I got no invitation
I guess the mailman didn't bring it to me
But I see the whole thing in slow motion
Every night as I try to sleep

My buddy John said you looked real pretty
And you acted like you were in love
He said the preacher asked for objections
And he tought about standing up

I told John he must've been crazy
'Cause you were just about to say I do
He just gave me a wink and said all he could think
Is it could've been me with you

It could have been me standing there with you
It could have been me and my dreams coming true
But those dreams move on if you wait too long
It took me till now to see it could have been me

I don't guess I ever told you
That I went out and bought you a ring
I even carried it around in my pocket
Waiting to say the right thing

I pulled it out the other day
But the diamond had lost it's shine
Well I know how it feels 'cause my eyes grow dim
When I think you could've been mine

It could have been me standing there with you
It could have been me and my dreams coming true
But those dreams move on if you wait too long
It took me till now to see it could have been me

Oh I called her just in time to be too late
You know those dreams move on if you wait too long
It took me till now to see (it could've been me)

It could have been me standing there with you
It could have been me and my dreams coming true
But those dreams move on if you wait too long
It took me till now to see it could have been me

It could have been me...
