Billy Ray also created and starred in the CMT comedy series Still the King, which ran for two seasons, prior to that leading the show Doc for four seasons.

Billy Ray exploded onto the music scene when his first album, Some Gave All, debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard album chart and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. After seeing his lead single “Achy Breaky Heart” go multi-platinum — becoming the first song ever to achieve triple platinum status in Australia — he went on to release back-to-back hits including “It Could’ve Been Me,” “She’s Not Crying Anymore,” “Wher’m I Gonna Live When I Get Home?” and “Some Gave All.”
On the heels of Cyrus’s second No. 1 album, It Won’t Be the Last, featuring the tunes “In the Heart of a Woman,” “Words By Heart” and “Somebody New,” his success continued dozens more singles that redefined country music. More recently, he broke records alongside Lil Nas X with the worldwide smash “Old Town Road (Remix ft. Billy Ray Cyrus),” which came in as the highest certified song in the history of the Recording Industry Association of America, when it went 14x platinum in the U.S.
In addition to a pair of Grammys, Billy Ray’s accolades include Billboard Music Awards, BET Hip Hop Awards, MTV VMA Moonmen, Country Music Association Awards, American Music Awards and Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences Juno Awards, among others.
An Australian-born singer, songwriter and actress, Firerose duets with husband Billy Ray on their new single, “Plans,” which climbed to No. 16 on both Mediabase’s Adult Contemporary Chart and Billboard’s Adult Contemporary Chart. She has performed on national television programs like LIVE with Kelly and Ryan and Good Morning America, and has been featured in People Magazine, American Songwriter, Taste of Country, and Us Weekly, as well as on CNN, iHeartRadio, The Today Show Australia, and other platforms.
