By the time Miley Cyrus was born her father, Billy Rae, was a successful country music artist. On the day of her November 1992 birth Billy Rae had a song at the top of the charts with his smash hit “Achy Breaky Heart.” At that time it was the leader of the Billboard charts for country music and it was number four on the list of Billboard’s Hot 100.
It was inevitable Miley would become a musician, following in the footsteps of her father Billy Ray Cyrus. Cyrus grew up on a 500-acre farm in Franklin with her parents and had a keen interest in singing and acting from an early age. She was just 11 when she landed the role of Hannah Montana in 2006. Originally born Destiny Hope Cyrus, Miley changed her name in 2008 and the rest as they say is history.
