Billy Ray Cyrus
Way before earning the title of “Miley Cyrus’ Dad,” William “Billy” Ray Cyrus achieved major success with his own music career. Since 1992, he has released 12 studio albums and 44 singles. (Remember that song “Achy Breaky Heart”? That one’s his.)
From 2005 to 2011, Billy Ray starred alongside his daughter in a hit sitcom about a tween girl and her pop-star alter-ego. Then, as a contestant on a hit dance competition show, the long-haired country crooner boogied on down with his dance coach and even made it to the semi-finals!
