Hope is just ahead. Billy Ray Cyrus and Dionne Warwick team up for 'Hope is Just Ahead,' a song Billy Ray wrote more than a decade ago, after the Columbine High School shooting in 1999.

Billy Ray hopes the song can help us heal, saying 'Our thoughts and prayers for our children and our country. God Bless America... God shed His Grace on Thee.'


A portion of the proceeds from sales of the single will be donated to the Do The Write Thing - National Campaign to Stop Violence, an effort to prevent school violence. You can download the song on iTunes.

Billy Ray says linking 'Hope' with the organization, the song 'has now found its purpose.'
