“New Day” was written during pandemic
The number 19 is a numeral pillar in Billy Ray Cyrus’ career. It’s the number of consecutive weeks his history-making collaboration of “Old Town Road (Remix ft. Billy Ray Cyrus)” with Lil Nas X remained at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. And now, the number 19 ushers in his new collab with Firerose on “New Day,” with the single rising to No. 19 on Mediabase’s Adult Contemporary chart as well as the Top 20 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart.
The pair co-wrote “New Day” during the thick of the pandemic with the hope of brighter new days ahead.
Recently, Cyrus and the Australian-born Firerose opened up about writing and recording “New Day” with beloved radio and podcast personality, Delilah, on Love Someone With Delilah.
The appearance follows their premiere broadcast performance of “New Day” on Live with Kelly and Ryan. The pair also recently performed the collaboration at the Grand Ole Opry, which marked Firerose’s debut in the world-famous sacred Circle.
