Country star Billy Ray Cyrus is giving his fans a dose of religion on his latest album by recording a collection of gospel songs.

The ACHY BREAKY HEART crooner calls THE OTHER SIDE, which is a return to his Kentucky roots, "the album of a lifetime".

He says, 'To tell the truth, this is an album I should've made years ago, with my grandfather being a Pentecostal preacher and my dad heading up a gospel quartet. This is my roots.

"My fans are going to love it. For the longest time I played AMAZING GRACE on ever tour, and it's always the most requested song."
