    Billy Ray Cyrus' 1999 hit "Busy Man" just about made people forgive him for "Achy Breaky Heart." SOUTHERN RAIN is yet another step in his continuing quest for respectability. Having excised most of the over-the-top snarl from his voice, Cyrus is singing better than ever; his emotion-packed vocals on the beautiful, midtempo love song "You Won't Be Lonely Now" are particularly outstanding.
    Cyrus also shines on most of the CD's ballads. He's steamy and passionate on "I Will," anguished and desperate on "Love You Back," and hopelessly devoted on "Everywhere I Wanna Be." Another standout is the funky "We the People," a blue collar anthem reminiscent of Alabama's "40 Hour Week" that features guest vocals from Waylon Jennings, Montgomery Gentry, John Anderson, Yankee Grey and Danni Leigh. (Ironically, George W. Bush chose "We the People" as the official theme song for his presidential campaign, even though Cyrus is a Democrat). For comic relief, Cyrus throws in the humorous, rowdy "Burn Down the Trailer Park," and the goofy rocker, "Hey Elvis," a bonus track co-written by Bryan Adams. The sound of SOUTHERN RAIN just might be enough to drown out the strains of "Achy Breaky Heart" permanently.
