Billy Ray Cyrus to perform next Sunday prior to Sprint Cup race at Fontana

Billy Ray Cyrus, he of Achy Breaky Heart fame, will likely sing that song and several others next Sunday in a pre-race concert prior to the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway.

Cyrus will take the O’Reilly Auto Parts Fan Zone main stage at 10 a.m. PT, about 2 ½ hours before the race starts on the massive two-mile Southern California track.

Hard as it may seem to believe, the Flatwoods, Ky., native has sold more than 25 million albums/CDs globally and has had three No. 1 hit singles, including “Achy.”

But let’s hope for two things that Cyrus doesn’t do in his concert:

1 That he doesn’t start twerking like daughter Miley.

2 He doesn’t play the hip-hop version of “Achy” – known as “Achy Breaky 2” – that was released last month by Cyrus and rapper Buck 22 (video below – if you’re brave enough to watch it).
