This is my third, and last contest entry for the Billy Ray Cyrus signed guitar contest.
I won't hog the group with so many articles about why I should win, because so many others have great reasons why they should also win.
I say good luck to all of them.
Yes, I would love to win.
I first heard Billy Ray Cyrus on my car radio in the early 1990's.
I was living in Texas at the time, and was moved by his music.
My first thought was that "this guy is good."
I soon heard more of his music, and loved his style and beat.
He had it all.
I was doing a lot of theatre/acting at the time, and I wanted to be like him.
He was hot, and had the world at his feet.
I was not a very good singer, so being another Billy Ray Cyrus was out the window.
But I liked his example, and the fact that he seemed to come out of nowhere to hit it big.
Kind of like Elvis.
Billy Ray was hot all right, and getting hotter.
His music was in stores, cars, homes, clubs, and you name it.
I loved every minute of it.
He was a star, and he had a way with people.
He cared, and gave so much of his time to others.
He never turned his back on people.
I could still be like Billy Ray Cyrus, because he did so many good things.
To me, he was a great example to follow.
Over the years, Billy Ray Cyrus helped to make the world a better place.
He is hot again, just as he was in those early years, but his impact is bigger than ever.
I am a Billy Ray Cyrus fan, but more than that, I admire him for being a good person.
I wish more people in the entertainment industry were like him.
As for the contest, I would love to win the guitar.
What a prize that would be.
Imagine it hanging on my wall.
I know that it may hang on another fan's wall, but hey, I gave it a try.
After all, this guitar was signed by Billy Ray Cyrus.
I advance, I say congrats to the winner!
