William Ray Cyrus (born August 25, 1961) is an American singer, songwriter and actor.
Having released 12 studio albums and 44 singles since 1992, he is best known for his number one single "Achy Breaky Heart",
which became the first single ever to achieve triple Platinum status in Australia. It was also the best-selling single in the same
country in 1992 and was translated[clarification needed] into more than 100 languages.[8][not verified in body]
Thanks to the video of this hit, the line dance catapulted into the mainstream, becoming a worldwide craze.

Cyrus, a multi-platinum selling recording artist, has scored a total of eight top-ten singles on the Billboard Country Songs chart.
His most successful album to date is his debut Some Gave All, which has been certified 9× Multi-Platinum in the United States and
is the longest time spent by a debut artist at number one on the Billboard 200 (17 consecutive weeks) and most consecutive
chart-topping weeks in the SoundScan era. It is the only album (from any genre) in the SoundScan era to log 17 consecutive weeks
at number one and is also the top-ranking debut album by a male country artist. It ranked 43 weeks in the top 10, a total topped by
only one country album in history, Ropin' the Wind by Garth Brooks. Some Gave All was also the first debut album to enter at
number one on the Billboard Country Albums chart. The album has also sold more than 20 million copies worldwide
and is the best-selling debut album of all time for a solo male artist. Some Gave All was also the best-selling album of 1992
in the US with 4,832,000 copies. In his career, he has released 35 charted singles, of which 16 charted in the top 40.

From 2001 to 2004, Cyrus starred in the television show Doc. The show was about a country doctor who moved from Montana
to New York City. From 2006 to 2011, he co-starred in the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana with his daughter Miley Cyrus.
As of 2016, he stars as Vernon Brownmule on the CMT sitcom Still the King.

Personal Life

From 1986 to 1991, Cyrus was married to Cindy Smith, with whom he co-wrote the songs "Wher'm I Gonna Live?"
and "Some Gave All", both of which were featured on his 1992 debut album Some Gave All.[8]

On December 28, 1993, Cyrus married Leticia "Tish" Cyrus (née Finley; born May 13, 1967). Together they have three children:
Miley Cyrus (born as Destiny Hope in 1992), Braison Chance (born 1994), and Noah Lindsey (born 2000). He also has two adopted
stepchildren from Finley's previous relationship: Brandi (born 1987); and Trace (born 1989), singer/guitarist for Metro Station.
Cyrus adopted Brandi and Trace when they were young children.

Cyrus also has a son, Christopher Cody (born April 1992), from a previous relationship with Kristin Luckey, who raised him
in South Carolina. In a 2004 interview on ABC News: Primetime, Cyrus stated that Miley (conceived with Finley) and Christopher
(conceived with Luckey) were both born in 1992, when he was unmarried, and his marriage to Finley the following year
(while she was pregnant with their son) was secret and against his record company's advice.

The family lived on a 500-acre (2.0 km2) farm in Thompson's Station, outside of Nashville, Tennessee before moving to Los
Angeles for the filming of Hannah Montana. Cyrus' other daughter Brandi had a role in a Hannah Montana episode "Yet Another
Side of Me" as Customer No. 1 and in the season 4 episode "Been Here All Along" as the Guitarist during the military tribute.

On October 26, 2010, Cyrus filed for divorce from his wife in Tennessee, citing irreconcilable differences.[44] In a statement
made to People the next day announcing the split, the couple said, "As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family...
We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers." However, on March 18, 2011,
Cyrus announced on The View that he had dropped the divorce.[46] On June 13, 2013, Tish filed for divorce from Billy Ray
after 19 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. However, it was reported in July 2013 that they had
gone to couples therapy and rekindled their relationship.

Cyrus described himself as a "lifelong" Democrat in 2000, when his song "We the People" was being used
as a campaign song by George W. Bush
