This vintage country music tee features a portrait of Billy Ray Cyrus and his iconic mullet from the cover of his hit debut single "Achy Breaky Heart". The song was originally recorded by The Marcy Brothers under the title "Don't Tell My Heart", but Cyrus's rendition managed to become an international phenomenon, topping the charts in several countries and becoming the first country single to be certified Platinum since Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton released "Islands in the Stream" in 1983.
"Achy Breaky Heart" was a crossover hit that spanned across both pop and country radio stations, and it is often credited with bringing a renewed interest to country music in the 90s. The song helped to usher in a transitional period that popularized the genre among younger listeners. The music video also helped to kickstart the mainstream popularity of the line dance.
Despite the song's popularity upon its release, some consider in to be one of the worst songs ever recorded. In the television series Hannah Montana, which starred both Cyrus and his daughter Miley, the song is often jokingly referenced. Weird Al Yankovic also wrote a parody, changing the lyrics to be about one man's disdain for the tune.
