From an article on the CMT website ..

"Billy Ray Cyrus Back in Recording Spotlight

There was a similar emotional connection to "The Freebird Fell," Cyrus's homage to the members of Lynyrd Skynyrd who died in the 1977 airplane crash. "That's the way I felt," Cyrus says of the song. "Artimus Pyle was the drummer in Lynyrd Skynyrd at the time. When they crashed, Artimus climbed out of the wreckage and crawled to a farmer's house to get help. Artimus was telling that story to me over the phone, and I just said to him,'Well, I think I was in the 10th grade at the time, and I never will forget the day the Freebird fell.'

"He said,'Cyrus, if I could write a song, that would be the one I'd write.' I said,'Well, let me see if I can go to work on it.' That evening, I built a big fire up here on top of the hill and was just sitting looking into that fire. And I started thinking about that particular album [Street Survivors] that just came out at the time of the Skynyrd crash. It was the one with the band on it that had flames in the background. And all of a sudden the song just started coming to me. I wrote the rest of it at that moment while I was outside. Then I came in, and I thought,'You know what? To have a tribute to Ronnie Van Zant and the fallen members of Lynyrd Skynyrd, it's got to be authentic Southern rock, and nobody does it better than [guitarist] Ed King, who wrote "Sweet Home Alabama," "Swamp Music" and a bunch of those Skynyrd hits.' So I called Ed King, and he came out to the house and we finished it up. Again, it was just an honest sequence of events."

The Only Daddy I Have Ever Known

You were one of my first memories worth hangin on to.
Yours has always been one of the voices... that dance like drunken demons sometimes in my head.
More each moment you are surrounding me.
Daddy, your words do not hurt me... they never have. Yours is like one of an angel... standing in the window up above.
George, Mamma is always there right beside you... She loved you the day she died.
I love you Daddy... come get me! Please!

Daddy, why haven't you came... in the least... could you not call?

Perhaps, you knew of me and did not want me?

On my knee Sir, I am begging.

CMT I am on my way!
