I was never a Billy Ray Cyrus fan, although I didn't dislike him either. But this is an interesting addition, and I think his attitude will be good. Whether he'll be able to do well is anyone's guess, but he'll be interesting to watch, I think.
His partner is Karina Smirnoff. Lord have mercy on his soul! And I was kind of hoping she wouldn't be back this season. Oh well, I hope she's a better sport than Her Highness was last season.
And btw, to those wondering if his hair is a Keith Urban impression... BRC has had that same hairstyle for about 10 years, way before Urban.
