Billy Ray's Next Move
Billy Ray Cyrus is planning his next career move…
Billy Ray has signed a deal with Syfy to develop a weekly reality series, “UFO: Unbelievably Freakin’ Obvious.” According to the press release, Billy Ray and his 21-year-old son, Trace, will “investigate the conspiracy theories that abound around unexplained activity and paranormal phenomena. The project pairs the skeptical Cyrus with his conspiracy-theorist son, and together the two amateur sleuths journey to uncover hidden secrets and obtain untold firsthand accounts.
Each episode will feature the father and son on cross-country trips that will usually find them traversing America’s back roads on their quest for the truth. Trace’s best friend, dubbed ‘Silent Franky,’ will feed the father and son with important data from his computer workstation set up in his parent’s basement. Cyrus and Trace are going to need all the help they can get as they attempt to crack the government code surrounding a wide range of potential cover-ups, from political controversies to the existence of alleged creatures to eerie occurrences that have long been in question. The series will dig deep into the venerable mysteries of paranormal existence and try to uncover the facts – and perhaps finding the truth to be more obvious than one thinks.”
Billy Ray said in the press release, “The existence of paranormal phenomena is something I've always wanted to explore further," said Cyrus. "Getting the opportunity to take this adventure with my son, who has always had a keen interest in this area, is a dream come true. I hope this series can shine a light on some of the activities we have questioned, and the mysteries that have long inspired us.”
You might remember Trace as a founding member of the group Metro Station (“Shake It”). He is currently in the process of writing an album for his new project, Ashland HIGH.
