Billy Ray Cyrus Signs on for UFO Reality Series

Billy Ray Cyrus is about to get out of this world—and no, that’s not a reference to that perplexing little soul patch of his.

The “Achy Breaky Heart” singer and father to Miley Cyrus (you might have heard of her) has signed on with the Syfy network to star in a new reality series entitled UFO: Unbelievably Freakin’ Obvious, in which he and his son Trace Cyrus will travel across the country, exploring conspiracy theories involving paranormal activities such as flying saucers and other freaky occurrences. Says Cyrus of the new venture,

“The existence of paranormal phenomena is something I’ve always wanted to explore further. 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.”

Adds Syfy VP of Original Programming Mark Stern,

“Allegations of cover-up and conspiracy around unexplained phenomena has inspired heated debate for decades, and it will be interesting to see what truth Billy Ray and Trace may discover.”

Perhaps, while the pair is out there, they can uncover the mystery of why Billy Ray ever thought that mega-mullet that he sported in his heyday was a good idea.
