Just when we thought we knew everything about Billy Ray Cyrus, he goes and proves us wrong.

The 56-year-old country singer has released a cover version of the late legend Don Williams’ country classic, “Tulsa Time.” But, his rendition of the tune is definitely not be what you’d expect.

Billy Ray teamed with his youngest daughter, Noah Cyrus, and U.S. Navy Veteran Derek Jones on the song. And, the final result seems like a match made in heaven for anybody who’s addicted to the club scene.

A psychedelic music video, which features the Rokman-produced remix, shows Billy Ray and his daughter performing the song live over the course of several shows. Noah, who dons a bright red bustier and vintage hat, dances around onstage, while Billy Ray strums on his guitar. Derek, who served as an MM3 Machinist Third Class Petty Officer in Iraq, comes in toward the end of the clip.

All the while, fans get a dose of the original country lyrics set to an electronic dance beat.

“This is a party. This is a good time with a rock ‘n’ roll band and a dance groove,” Billy Ray said of the cover in a press release. “So fun! Made loud to be played loud!”

This isn’t Billy Ray’s first time covering the famous song with another artist. He previously recorded a more countrified version of the tune with Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry for his 2016 album, “Thin Line.”

The new version of the tune appears on Billy Ray’s current album, “Set the Record Straight,” which dropped on Nov. 10. The project also features collaborations with Loretta Lynn, the late George Jones, Bryan Adams, Miley Cyrus and Ronnie Milsap.
