Miley Cyrus, Bret Michaels to Rock Out on 'GMA'

Teen pop queen Miley Cyrus and '80s rock icon Bret Michaels are teaming up to take over New York's Central Park Friday as part of "Good Morning America's" Summer Concert Series.

The performance comes just days before the June 22 debut of Cyrus' latest album and is something of a comeback for Michaels, who only recently resumed touring following a brain hemorrhage in March that nearly killed the rocker.

"My way of healing is making music, is going back on the road," Michaels told Billboard this week.

Included in that music is a duet with Cyrus called "Nothing to Lose," which will appear on his upcoming solo album, "Custom Built."

Tune into "Good Morning America" Friday morning, 7 a.m. EST for this unforgettable concert event.

But if playing music again is a second life for Michaels, this year also marks a rebirth of sorts for Cyrus.

This isn't the same Miley we met in 2006, when millions welcomed the teenager into their households with the Disney Channel hit "Hannah Montana." She has shed her perky, wholesome image in favor of a new, more mature look.

Teaming up with Michaels was likely a no-brainer for Cyrus, ever since Poison -- Michaels' former band -- headlined the first concert Cyrus ever attended, according to Michaels.

"She told me, like, 'The whole thing got me excited and sort of turned my whole life into wanting to be a musician.' It's a great feeling to sort of pay that forward, you know?" Michaels told Billboard.

A Brand New Miley

Cyrus' newest album, "Can't Bet Tamed," is set to drop on June 22 and features a different sound than fans may be used to.

Cyrus said with her new sound she can "get a bit crazy."

The music, she said, is inspired by the music group The Killers. To create it, Cyrus teamed up with Grammy Award-winning producer John Shanks, along with her longtime studio collaborators Tim James and Antonina Armato.

They co-wrote and produced album's first single and title track, "Can't Be Tamed," which Cyrus described as "self-empowering."

The song addresses Cyrus' own ambitions and cautions anyone who might stand in her way: "And if you try to hold me back I might explode, Baby by now you should know."

The 2010 Summer Concert Series returns for the second straight year to the Rumsey Playfield in Central Park, where music's biggest names will perform live every Friday.

Viewers interested in joining "GMA" in Central Park are encouraged to arrive at Rumsey Playfield via the 72nd street entrance on Fifth Avenue at 6 a.m. when the park opens to the public.
