Exclusive: Billy Ray Cyrus on Revamping 'Achy Breaky Heart,' Why His Marriage to Tish Is 'Stronger' Than Ever

10 May 2017 4:09 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

As "Achy Breaky Heart" turns 25, Billy Ray Cyrus' signature song seems as relevant as ever.

"I do feel that when you look at America and our world 25 years ago, that there was a great division, not only in America, but worldwide," Cyrus tells Et's Nancy O'Dell. "You look at it today and, in some ways, it's unfortunate that it has gone full circle. 'Achy Breaky' was always about uniting people, a bridge to bring people together and when you get with other people that sing or speak in a different language or dance to a different song or live in a different country but you have a common denominator of just a fun little song that people know the words to and they like to dance to it, that's the ultimate show of joy for a human -- to dance and sing."
