Nashville, Tenn. – Bobby & Teddi Cyrus are gearing up for the release of their forthcoming, self titled album. Released via Pinecastle Records, the project is slated for April 9. In anticipation, the dynamic husband/wife pair is excited to unveil the latest single from the collection, titled “Let’s Talk About Jesus.” Fans can download and stream the inspirational Bluegrass recording HERE.
“Let’s Talk About Jesus” is a tune that was written by Bobby Cyrus alongside Ronnie Bowman. It tells a very relatable story about learning the good word, and spotlights just how much Jesus is able to change each person’s life. It showcases Teddi’s powerful vocals, which soar throughout. The chorus is quick to the point, stating “If you’re talkin’ about Jesus / let’s talk about Jesus / you’re talking about my Lord / oh my Lord.” Playing on the new single is Bobby on acoustic guitar, Scott Vestal pickin’ banjo, Don Rigsby on mandolin, Dave Roe performing bass, Eamon McLaughlin on fiddle and Teddi singling lead / harmony vocals.
Bluegrass enthusiasts were treated to the lead single “My Wedding Day” in November. The track quickly began making waves, and nearly four months after its original release sits at No. 5 on the Mountain Bluegrass with David Pugh chart, The Gospel Weekly Top 12. The song was co-written by Jimmy Sites who hosts Spiritual Outdoor Adventures, alongside Jimmy Yeary who has penned huge hits by Rascal Flatts (“Why Wait”), Lee Brice (“I Drive Your Truck”), Martina McBride (“I’m Gonna Love You Through It”) and more.
The full Bobby & Teddi Cyrus album was co-produced by Don Rigsby and features Justin Moses (dobro, fiddle, banjo), Rigsby (mandolin), Mark Fain (bass) and Kenny Smith (guitar). The full collection for the upcoming project includes 12 new recordings that showcase the strength of each singer’s voice.
The power of music flows deep in the Cyrus family roots. Born and raised in eastern Kentucky, the Bluegrass inspiration has always been there for Bobby. The singer/songwriter credits his father, the late Bobby Glenn Cyrus as his main inspiration for pursuing a career in music. Bobby’s story came full-circle when he met the legendary Tom T. Hall, who served as an initial mentor. Country music fans are also most likely familiar with Bobby’s cousin, the multi-platinum “Achy Breaky Heart” singer Billy Ray Cyrus. Also credited as inspirations for the project are Waylon Jennings, Ricky Skaggs, Larry Cordle, Kris Kristofferson and Keith Whitley.
