Before releasing his most recent album, he took a four year break from the music industry. Last season, he appeared on Dancing With The Stars
, and returned this season to sing with Miley, who was his biggest fan when he competed on the show. His album, Home At Last
, hit stores this year and debuted at number 3 on the Billboard Country charts.
