And before you ask, yes… Bobby is a cousin to country hit heartthrob Billy Ray. But he credits his inspiration to his father, the late Bobby Glen Cyrus, for his pursuing a career in music. Growing up in eastern Kentucky, it was bluegrass that he fell in love with as a boy, and his desire to write and sing it was cemented when he met Tom T Hall, who served as an early mentor.
A first single is available now from their album, co-produced by Don Rigsby, who also plays mandolin. They were supported by Kenny Smith on guitar, Mark Fain on bass, and Justin Moses on fiddle, banjo, and reso-guitar.
The track they have chosen is My Wedding Day, written by Jimmy Sites and Jimmy Yeary, which features Bobby and Teddi in duet. It’s a Gospel waltz number with twin fiddles in an acoustic country vibe.
