Bobby & Teddi Cyrus released their brand new video “Roll That Rock” featuring their cousin Billy Ray Cyrus. The track is Billy Ray’s first Bluegrass release, and it is out now on Pinecastle Records. The duo also made their debut performance with Billy Ray on the Grand Ole Opry.
Regarding the video shoot, Bobby Cyrus said “We felt a very special vibe about this project from the start. It seemed to connect everyone involved in a very spiritual way. It was like everyone was looking around during pre-production and knew this was going to matter and touch people! Then as the evening sun began to drift down and reveal itself through the ancient boards of that old barn where we were shooting, it was showtime.” Continuing, he offers, “It was magic! The music started, and we all were already in it! Like a movie that was already shot. We could have finished after the first take!”
The video was filmed in the historic Southall Meadows Barn in scenic Franklin, Tennessee, and directed by Brian Smith with Ethan Burkhardt producing the project.
Bobby explains, “‘Roll That Rock’ started as a collaboration between Billy Ray and I as writers. Then it became a collaboration of my wife Teddi Cyrus’ powerful vocals, Billy Ray’s undeniable sound, and me.” Teddi Cyrus adds, “‘Roll That Rock’ is an inspiring and beautifully written song about the sacrifices Jesus made for us to have eternal life. This song is powerful and will move your soul. I pray that it blesses all listeners as much as it has me.”
“I always prayed for purpose through the music. Started a band for that reason. When I started singing ‘Roll That Rock’ my inner spirit said Bobby Cyrus will know exactly what to do with this. He did,” explains Billy Ray about collaborating with his cousin Bobby. “He wrote the Gospel truth and then sang the daylights out of it with Teddi and a killer Bluegrass band reminiscent of Earl Scruggs and Bill Monroe.”
