Billy Ray Cyrus has teamed up with the legendary Dionne Warwick to release “Hope Is Just Ahead.” The song was recorded at Jamie Foxx’s studio in Los Angeles and will be released to radio on Monday, February 3.

“As a singer-songwriter I’ve always tried to capture the truth and honesty of life,” said Billy Ray. “Sometimes it’s that moment of truth that becomes far too real and reveals the sacrifice that has been made. This song is about change. It’s about looking at our past mistakes and learning from them as a society. More than anything …it’s about ‘Hope’ and a better tomorrow…if we will only allow ourselves to believe.”

“’Hope Is Just Ahead.’ What a title, what lyrics, what meaning,” said Dionne Warwick. “I am so proud of the fact that I was asked to do this as a duet with Billy Ray. ‘Hope Is Just Ahead’ is saying everything most of the songs I have recorded in the past fifty years have said. It’s a song of hope, inspiration, love, compassion, sharing, caring, and giving. These things make the world go round. I certainly hope that people listen to the lyrics of this song and that they’ll be inspired to do what this song is saying to do and know hope is just ahead.”

A portion of the proceeds from the song’s sales will be donated to the Do The Write Thing – National Campaign To Stop Violence. Watch the video below:
