Country superstar Billy Ray Cyrus guest stars as Lasso Larry Larson, a popular country western singer whose lyrics are best when he's depressed, on Love Boat: The Next Wave airing Friday, February 26th, 9:00 p.m. Eastern on UPN. In the episode, Lasso Larry comes aboard as the star attraction of a country western themed cruise. For being a superstar, however, Larry seems abnormally down in the dumps and Nicole is faced with the task of cheering him up. In no time, Larry is whistling as he walks, admiring the stars in the evening sky and ... singing like a frog. It turns out that Larry is at his best when he's depressed.
