Billy Ray Cyrus singing his best selling single Achy Breaky Heart.
The Achy Breaky Heart was a worldwide hit written by Don Von Tress and was danced to all over the world including Italy where this video was apparently shot.
Billy Ray Cyrus recorded Achy Breaky Heart in 1992 and the single enabled the Some Gave All album to sell 9 million copies in the United States and 20 million copies worldwide.
Only the most ardent Billy Ray Cyrus fans could probably think of another song on the album. The album was a monster hit in Australia becoming the first album to sell triple platinum in the country down under.
It was a huge crossover hit going to No.4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was the first country single since Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers had recorded Islands in the Stream in 1983 to be certified platinum.
The Oak Ridge Boys had a chance to record the song in 1990 but turned it down when Duane Allen said he didn’t like the words “achy breaky”.
After it became popular even the Chipmunks recorded it and it was No.71 on the Hot 100 Billboard Country chart giving them their first charted song in 42 years.
The song was No.2 on VH1’s list of Most Awesomely Bad Songs. One thing for sure is that it was one of the most played songs on radio.
