Billy Ray Cyrus Stars In New "Achy Breaky 2" Music Video, Featuring Semi Nude Twerking

Feb 12, 2014 09:30 AM

Apparently Billy Ray Cyrus is getting all aboard the twerking train in a new music video called "Achy Breaky 2." This is a trend -- we wish the 52-year-old had never hopped on.

The country star-turned-Miley's dad is now starring in rapper Buck 22's hip hop remix of the crooner's 1992 smash hit, "Achy Breaky Heart." The collab featured an army of scantily clads dancers (we aren't sure if they are only waring electrical tape or paint -- but it's not a lot) -- twerking around in what appears to be a spaceship as Billy Ray and Buck 22 rock out.

Buck 22 (whose real name is Damon Elliott) explained how the unlikely collaboration happened: "I asked if [Billy Ray] would mind if I could take a crack at remaking Achy Breaky Heart and he looked at me for a moment, and said 'lots of people have tried already, but go for it.'"

The producer/rapper continued, "He didn't have a clue that I had already gone into the lab and cooked up a demo of what I thought would be a fun EDM/hip-hop styled version, which at the time only had a sample from the original of his voice."

And the rest is history -- a history of a 1992 song that we wish we could forget. While his twerking queen of a daughter isn't in this video (thank God) -- we still know she is to blame.

Don't tell my achy break heart? How 'bout don't tell our ears!

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Billy Ray Cyrus Comforts Miley Cyrus After Split From Liam Hemsworth

Fortunately for Miley Cyrus, no one knows more about achy breaky hearts than her dad Billy Ray Cyrus.

Billy Ray was on hand to comfort Miley following her breakup from fiance Liam Hemsworth. He supervised as movers carried Liam's belongings out of his daughter's Los Angeles home on Friday and drove them away in a large truck. The controversial singer must have needed her father's support, especially considering the fact that she had to jet off to Las Vegas later that day to perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. Her busy singing career probably doesn't leave her time to grieve.

To unwind from the high-pressure situation, Billy Ray walked his dogs in the Toluca Lake neighborhood.

It's out with the old for Miley. And apparently in with the new for Liam. He was spotted partying in Las Vegas with new flame Eiza Gonzalaez last weekend. Miley and Liam confirmed the split on Monday and The Hunger Games star was spent the night with his new lady love in Los Angeles the following day.

Tish Cyrus took a pre-Easter (we wonder how the Christian Cyruses celebrated) walk with her dog on Saturday in Toluca Lake, California.

Miley's mom dressed to match her doggy, which looks like a bit of a polar bear if you ask us! That dog is huge - especially next to tiny Tish!

Cyrus recently grabbed dinner with daughters Miley and Noah and hubby Billy Ray.

The fam is said to be doing well after Billy Ray and Tish called of their divorce in March.

Tish is also getting involved with her daughter's career in a new way; see how after the jump!

In October of 2010 Billy Ray filed for divorce citing "irreconcilable differences," but less than two weeks ago he revealed that the divorce was off. "I wanted to put my family back together," the Achy Breaky Heart singer said at the time. "Things are the best they've ever been. I feel like I got my Miley back. I feel like we're the daddy and daughter we were before Hannah Montana."
