“FIREROSE is one of the best lyricists I know and actually takes great pride in only recording songs that she has written. So when she came to me one day so excited about a song she’d just received from another songwriter, needless to say, I was quite surprised. Then I heard the name of the writer and she played me the demo, and I realized her exuberance was justified. “Plans” by Diane Warren – one of the most legendary songwriters of our time. When FIREROSE and I collaborate in our diverse musical styles, it makes a unique blend of pop-country. They say the rest is history, but in this case… it’s the future,“ Cyrus said.
“It’s very meaningful for me to be singing this powerful love song with Billy. Diane Warren’s unparalleled talent has always inspired me tremendously as a songwriter. When she sent me “Plans” I immediately knew it was made for us,“ FIREROSE shared.
“Plans” explores romantic lyrics of love and commitment packed with powerhouse feelings only FIREROSE and Cyrus can emote.
“Billy Ray Cyrus and FIREROSE have made a beautiful record that I have a feeling we will be hearing at weddings for years to come,” Diane Warren shared.
Two-time GRAMMY®-winning producer Damon Elliott’s label, Kind Music Group, will release the single written by GRAMMY, Emmy, two-time Golden Globe winner and 14-time Oscar nominated songwriter Diane Warren. Damon produced the video for “Plans.”
