Over the past couple years, James Corden has taken the Internet by storm with his famous Carpool Karaoke segment from his late night talk show, The Late Late Show.
He and a famous singer drive around town singing their biggest hits, as well as some classics, and in between songs, Corden asks them some questions. His Carpool Karaoke segments have upwards to 154 million views with artists including Stevie Wonder, Carrie Underwood, Madonna, Adele, Britney Spears, Elton John, Bruno Mars, and Gwen Stefani joining him.
The segment on his show has become so wildly successful that Apple Music picked it up for a series, where Corden will pass the baton off to other celebrities to drive around town. From the looks of the preview, it’s going to be just as amazing!
A few of the celebrity pairings on Carpool Karaoke: The Series will be Alicia Keys and John Legend, Michael Strahan and Jeff Gordon, Ariana Grande and Seth McFarland, Metallica and Billy Eichner, Shaq and John Cena, and Blake Shelton and Chelsea Handler.
Just when we were thinking that we’d love to see more country singers added to the lineup, Apple Music listened! They just announced that a country star and his entire family will be taking part in their own episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series – Billy Ray Cyrus!
“We’re shooting ‘Carpool Karaoke’ on Apple Music. Check it out! Miley’s here, Noah’s here, whole family’s here. We’re gonna have a good time,” he said in a video shared on Carpool Karaoke’s official Facebook page.
Like many things in any Cyrus’ career, this will truly be a family affair, with his wife, Tish, and their kids, Trace, Brandi, Miley, Braison, and Noah all being part of the episode. It will be the most packed vehicle, and with a whole family that can sing, we’re sure they’re going to bring some awesome performances.
The whole Cyrus family is musically inclined. As most of you know, Miley has had an extremely successful singing career and Noah is embarking on her own as we speak! Trace is in the pop-punk band Metro Station, Braison has his own band, and Brandi sings and plays the guitar as well.
