Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus has released a music video as a promotional project of his newly-released single called "Somebody Said a Prayer". The song brings out a mellow sound which is combined with its lyrics, telling that at some points of their lives, people often fall down on their knees when going through a hard time.

The music video itself is filmed in Tarzana, California and directed by Roman White. It includes a cameo by Billy's son, Trace, who plays as a lead guitarist of the band Metro Station. Written by country powerhouses Neil Thrasher and Craig Wiseman, the song is confirmed to appear in Billy's upcoming eleventh studio album "Back to Tennessee". Furthermore, the record is slated for purchase sometime this year under the courtesy of Lyric Street Records.

I am usually into dance music, but I came across this video and I was blown away. I am 27 years old and after watching and listening to this video about 10 times, I just found myself crying. There was a time in my life where I felt like I did not want to live anymore. I have a two year old boy and all I could think of; was watching the little kids in this video crying and thinking that, if I would have hurt myself or even worse died, the pain I would have caused my kids. I want to thank Billy Ray Cyrus for this incredible song, but I would also like to thank the boy in this video. He made the video come to life and I know he is an actor, but a damn good one. WOW, the kid just lit me up with emotion and I wasn't expecting it. I can't wait for this to come onto iTunes so I can put it on my ipod. This could be a life changing song for a lot of people. A New Cyrus Fan for life!!!! Mike P

I loved it. There is nothing like faith and prayer to help a family through loss of a loved one. I know I lost my mother two years ago and this speaks right to my heart in so many ways. Amen Billy Ray keep songs like this coming and you will make people stand up and pay attention to what your message is.

I know this video will help people in their time of need. The little children made me feel the pain a family can go through. They sure made the video worth watching.

Can you get an Amen? I will give you 10 Amens...Billy Ray you outdid yourself here. I can tell you this right now, if this does not win an award I do not know what will. I am sure this song will connect to the world. Each and every actor in here did a great job and this video was very well cast. It was great to see Trace in this video....but the little boy stole the show. Where did he come from?
