The musical entertainment at this summer’s Roswell SERTOMA Club’s Mike Satterfield Memorial Fireworks Extravaganza will be headlined by Billy Ray Cyrus. The country music star will take the stage Fourth of July evening during Roswell’s free Independence Day celebration at Cielo Grande Recreation Area.

Billy Ray Cyrus has become a household name over the course of his career that spans across music, television and theater. Throughout his nearly three-decade career, Cyrus has achieved worldwide success as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer.

While Cyrus currently shares the No. 1 song on all music-streaming platforms worldwide with the remix of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” Cyrus is equally excited about the release of his long-planned album, “The SnakeDoctor Circus.”  Cyrus and record label BMG planned to release the concept record on May 24, long before the success of “Old Town Road.”

The Flatwoods, Ky., native exploded onto the music scene when his first album, “Some Gave All,” debuted on the all-genre Billboard album chart at No. 1 and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. The lead single, "Achy Breaky Heart," became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum. After "Achy Breaky Heart," Cyrus followed up with hits “It Could’ve Been Me,” “She’s Not Crying Anymore,” “Wher'm I Gonna Live When I Get Home?” and the anthemic “Some Gave All.”

Cyrus’ second No. 1 album, “It Won’t Be the Last,” featured smash hits “In the Heart of a Woman,” “Words By Heart” and “Somebody New.” Cyrus followed up with dozens more that defined country music.

“To me, my most defining moment in country was being joined by George Jones and Loretta Lynn on my self-penned ‘Country Music Has the Blues,’” said Cyrus. He also enjoyed a successful career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney series “Hannah Montana” with his daughter Miley Cyrus.
