Perhaps if Billy Ray didn't have so many "Y"s in his name, and the song he is most known for didn't end in them to make a catchy title, his life would have been different. Perhaps if Bill Cyrus had sung "My Aching Heart", he wouldn't have had such a massive hit, but would have gained the respect of the "music snobs" who trash his talent with those other "Y" words, "hokey" and "corny".
They sell him way short. He has a marvelous deep, throaty voice, an excellent songwriting gift, and an all-round ability as a performer, with a down-home funky style that makes his music interesting, heart-warming, and very enjoyable.

This CD has the feel of a live club recording, rather than a studio session, with an "up-close" sound. The band is terrific, and deserves mention: Terry Shelton, guitar / Barton Stevens, keyboards / Greg Fletcher, drums / Corky Holbrook, bass, with additional guitars by Keith Hinton and Sonny Garish (steel).
Billy Ray wrote "Someday, Somewhere, Someday", and co-wrote five others (tracks # 3, 4, 8, 9, and 10). I like the humor and musicianship in "Wher'm I Gonna Live ?" which he wrote with Cindy Cyrus, and he also wrote the patriotic hymn that is another favorite of mine with her, "Some Gave All".
His cover of Lee Hazelwood's "These Boots are Made for Walkin'" that was a hit for Nancy Sinatra in 1966 is fabulous, and one of the numbers on the CD that make great dance music.
Good songs, wonderful vocals, and a tight, skilled band all come together to make this a solid country CD, well deserving of praise. This album stayed a record 17 weeks in the # 1 spot on both Country and Pop charts, and total playing time is 36'01.

There's much more to this collection than "Achy Breaky Heart". (So what if it's a little on the corny side. You can't say it isn't catchy!) Billy Ray proves himself to be a talented singer & songwriter, & most of the highlights were co-written by B.R. himself. They include the honky tonkers, "Where'm I Gonna Live" & "I'm So Miserable" (Love those lyrics; "I'm so miserable without you, it's almost like you're here."), the 50's-style slow-dancer "Ain't No Good Goodbye", & the great title-track ballad. Also includes the Springsteen-ish "Never Thought I'd Fall In Love With You", as well as the radio hits, "Could've Been Me" & "She's Not Cryin' Anymore".

"Some Gave All" was Billy Ray Cyrus's debute album. Its first single, "Achy breaky Heart", gained top chart success, and no song in country music has been able to surpass its awesome popularity. Billy Ray became a superstar pretty much over night because of this album. There were several hits and great songs on this album, like "It Could've Been Me". It sold millions of records, and is still selling today! This is truely an album worth having. Overall, it is one of the best albums of all time. Billy Ray has also put out many more great things. For any album collector, or fan of great music, you have to get this album. It is one of the greatest albums of all time.

Forget that Billy Ray Cyrus was pretty much a one hit wonder with Achy Breaky Heart,and give his album a listen. Some Gave All,Billy Ray Cyrus first album is a great collection of country/rock. Could have been Me is great song to open the album up with. Achy Breaky Heart has to be the lowpoint of the album,it was his one huge hit and is a rather silly song,but most of the other songs on the album are good. Were am I gonna live and Some Gave All are also stand outs of this album.This is an underrated gem.

I found this cassette when I was just a kid. I loved it because of the song Achy Breaky Heart, but as I grew up I bought it on CD and started listening to the other songs. And this is Countryrock at its best. Nice, melodic songs with great personal texts. Cyrus got a good voice, the band is great, and the songwriting is solid as gold. The best songs here are with no doubt "Could have been me", "Someday, Somewhere, Somehow", "Never thought I`d fall in love with you" and "Some gave all". These are songs that can be listened to over and over. They all have this very personal stroke that makes it recognizable for every listener. No songs about camping in the wild and cowboys in the west, or a boring farmer here. Cyrus writes songs about love and the truth about life, and they ring true to everyone that hears it. To bad he lost a bit of his grip later on, but Some gave all will always be remembered for this great record.

I have all of Billy Ray Cyrus' CD's and I have enjoyed them all, but in my opinion, this is still his best and one of the best country albums ever put together. Every song in it is a winner, many of them written or co-written by Cyrus. "Some Gave All" is a great tribute to our veterans, one of the best if not THE best I've encountered. "Where'm I Gonna Live" is funny and clever; "Could've Been Me" is touching and beautiful, as are "Someday, Somewhere. Somehow" and "INever Thought I'd Fall In Love With You". Cyrus' very appealing sense of humor, which was such a hit in "Achy, Breaky", also shines in "I'm So Miserable", and "She's Not Cryin' Anymore" is melodious and moving. In sum, this is an album full of well crafted, thoughtful, funny and lovely-to-listen-to songs. Critics and Nashville snobs who snubbed Cyrus because his first hit was a novelty clearly didn't listen very carefully to these songs or the impressive and unique voice that sings them. Don't miss this CD--it's a gem.
