Shot Full of Love is the fifth studio album by country music artist Billy Ray Cyrus. It features the single "Busy Man", which peaked at number 3 in early 1999, becoming Cyrus's first Top Ten country hit since "Somebody New" in 1993. The album's title song is a cover of a song written by songwriter Bob McDill and originally recorded by Juice Newton in 1981, in 1983 by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and a number 73-peaking single in 1990 for Jennifer McCarter and The McCarters. This was also his last studio album for the Mercury Records label. The album sold more than 220,000 copies worldwide. After that album's release, Billy Ray Cyrus left Mercury Records for Monument Records in 1999.
