Billy Ray Cyrus -- Silent Night in Afghanistan

12/25/2009 9:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Billy Ray Cyrus gave the U.S. troops in Afghanistan an unexpected treat this week -- breaking out an impromptu rendition of "Silent Night" during a tour of a military operations center in Kabul.



It all went down after Cyrus learned the soldiers in the "war room" were unable to attend his stage performance scheduled for later in the trip. Someone asked Billy Ray to sing a little Christmas carol for the group -- and without hesitation, dude obliged.

Good work BRC.

It wasn't that they were unable to attend, they put up good money not to have to go.

I haven't seen him since the Achy Breaky Heart days. Mullet is gone. I'm still in shock.

I'm so happy for Billy Ray Cyrus and their success. They are great people from my Appalachian roots in Ashland, Kentucky. *CHEERS*

Party 'till you die!    

Good for him with supporting the troops and all, but the guy still creeps me out. Sorry, but who just sits there and watches their very young daughter spin around and gyrate doing a pole dance. That's not the only time he put the chill on the back of my neck.

But props still for this fairly decent act.

This is nice. Of all the things this man COULD have been doing during the holidays but he made the effort to visit the troops for whom this must be the loneliest time of year. God Bless all those who support our troops no matter what your political stance! MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!

I've seen him only once in a concert of sorts. He was the "big name" at the Phoenix Freedom Concert last august. After a fantastic show (to that point) he comes out in a knockoff of Elvis's white pant suit complete with a huge white feather boa wrapped around his neck. This rather tall man then proceeded to sing really well...but all the time he was skipping across the stage like a 10 year old girl...and never took his sunglasses off. They were either on his face or pushed back on his hairy head like a barette. I left right about then. Even though I hear later that the concert went on for another hour...I would not have been able to stand watching this grown man prancing across the stage like a tootie-frootie in a San Francisco nightclub.

Kudos to performers who sacrifice their time to visit our hard-working troops. Merry Christmas, everyone.

Those poor soldiers, don't they have enough to deal with, besides having to deal with "I'm Miley's Dad, In Case You Didn't Know".

I feel bad for the troops that had to listen to billy ray. They already have to be away from their families during the holidays & then they're subjected to billy ray "singing"? Our troops deserve better.
