Happy birthday, Billy Ray Cyrus! The man with the ‘Achy Breaky Heart,’ and dad to someone you might know named Miley, is turning 54 today, August 25! We bet his big, musical family is helping him celebrate!
Billy Ray Cyrus is turning 54 years-old today, August 25! The famous country singer (and former Hannah Montana star) may not be churning out the hits like he did in his younger days, but that doesn’t mean he’s sitting around doing nothing! Billy Ray’s had a year full of big developments, and has gotten closer with his family, too! Let’s help him celebrate his special day!
It’s hard to separate Billy Ray from his mega-famous daughter Miley Cyrus, 21, but you’ve gotta admit that they’ve made an amazing team. Everyone knew and loved Billy Ray as Miley’s dad on Hannah Montana, but now that the show’s in the past (waaaay in the past for Miley!), he’s moved on to bigger and better things for himself, as well.
In April 2015, it was announced that Billy Ray would be starring in a scripted comedy on CMT, called Still The King! How exciting! Billy Ray will play “a washed up one-hit wonder who is kicked out of country music, only to emerge 20 years later as the second best Elvis impersonator in Laughlin, Nevada.” That sounds so funny; we can’t wait until it airs!
Billy Ray also made the year a family affair by bonding with Miley and youngest daughter Noah, 15. Miley and her dad performed with a glam metal band during the last show at the West Hollywood House of Blues, the historic music venue in Los Angeles. What an honor — especially to experience with your child! He also helped Noah with her budding music career, accompanying her on guitar as she belted her heart out on stage during a show in June 2015. The next Miley?
