About Billy Ray Cyrus:

Billy Ray Cyrus became a household name over the course of his
unprecedented career which spans across music, television and theater.
Throughout his nearly three decade career, Cyrus has achieved worldwide
success as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer. The Flatwoods, KY
native exploded onto the music scene when his first album, Some Gave
All, debuted on the all-genre Billboard album chart at No. 1 and stayed
there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. The lead single, “Achy
Breaky Heart,” became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum.
After “Achy Breaky Heart,” Cyrus followed up with back to back hits “It
Could’ve Been Me,” “She’s Not Crying Anymore,” “Wher’m I Gonna Live When
I Get Home?” and the anthemic “Some Gave All.” Cyrus knocked himself
out of the top Billboard position with the his second No. 1 album, It
Won’t Be The Last, featuring smash hits “In the Heart of a Woman,”
“Words By Heart” and “Somebody New.” Cyrus followed up with dozens more
that defined country music. “To me, my most defining moment in country
was being joined by George Jones and Loretta Lynn on my self-penned
‘Country Music Has the Blues,’” said Cyrus. He also enjoyed a successful
career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney
series “Hannah Montana” with his daughter Miley. Recently, Cyrus has
shattered records with Lil Nas X with the global smash, “Old Town Road,”
which remained No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 19 consecutive weeks.
