Despite being in the midst of a divorce, Billy Ray Cyrus hasn't forgotten the importance of family. The 49-year-old singer is making that clear as host of TLC's upcoming "Homecoming," a reality series that will chronicle the surprise reunions of members of the military with their loved ones.
"'Homecoming' extends TLC’s focus on authentic and relatable life experiences," says Eileen O'Neill, president and general manager of TLC. "We look forward to honoring our service men and women, and celebrating in the unmatched moment when they are reunited with their families."
TLC has ordered three hour-long episodes of the heartwarming series, which was inspired by online and local-news segments in which soldiers surprise their friends and family back home.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the premiere date for "Homecoming" has not yet been set.
