The lesser known older half-brother of Miley Cyrus, Trace Cyrus (19), has been making progress in his own singing career. Trace is in a band called Metro Station, which released an album of the same name, back in September 2007. In the last week the second single from the album, Shake It, moved up 14 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 to the number 74 spot. So far the album has only sold 45,000 copies, which may not be much, but it’s a start.
The heavily tattooed Trace said:
"’Shake It’ was actually the last song we put on the album. It’s really taken off and become a fan favorite. Thank God we ended up putting it on there."
Besides music Trace even started a clothing company called From Backseats to Bedrooms. That’s thinking ahead in case the music doesn’t work out.
