During the halftime of the Tennessee Titans' football game against the Kansas City Chiefs, the country singer teams up with the 'America's Got Talent' finalists to cover his 1992 hit 'Some Gave All'.

AceShowbiz - Billy Ray Cyrus will team up with "America's Got Talent" finalists Voices Of Service for a special performance of his 1992 hit "Some Gave All" on Sunday, November 10.

The star will join the a cappella group, comprising military veterans, for a one-off performance of the track during the halftime of the Tennessee Titans' football game against the Kansas City Chiefs at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee, in honour of Veterans Day.

"Veterans Day is a special holiday for all of us to salute our veterans and say, 'Thank you for your service and your sacrifice,' " Cyrus told Rolling Stone Country. "To the militaries, to their families and their support of this great country and for our freedom."

The tune was inspired by a real-life encounter Cyrus had with a Vietnam War veteran named Sandy Kane in the late 80s, and the country music star told the publication that, after hearing the quartet perform the track during the 2019 season of the hit talent show, he knew he wanted them to appear alongside him.

"My dad was in a gospel quartet and it was all about four-part harmonies," he explained. "When I heard Voices (of Service), I was turned on because it was just so reminiscent of that four-part, Southern gospel harmony that is so much a part of my past, present, and future. It's what I really love and I was turned on by their sound."

"Then certainly when I learned about their message and what they stand for, the hope and the therapy and the goodness of making music for your soul, for your mind, for your spirit - I just thought it was a beautiful thing. So it's going to be really exciting to be with them on the 50-yard line."
