A major country music star will headline this year’s Fourth of July celebration for Roswell.

Billy Ray Cyrus will perform at the Roswell Sertoma Club’s Mike Satterfield Memorial Fireworks Extravaganza at Cielo Grande Recreation Area, according to a city news release.

Billy Ray Cyrus is known as a songwriter and singer as well as a television and theater actor and producer.

He shares the No. 1 song on all music-streaming platforms worldwide with the remix of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” and is about to release a long-planned album, “The SnakeDoctor Circus.”

The Flatwoods, Kentucky, native’s first album, “Some Gave All,” debuted on the all-genre Billboard album chart at No. 1 and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. The lead single, “Achy Breaky Heart,” became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum.

He also has enjoyed a successful career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney series “Hannah Montana” with daughter Miley Cyrus.
