Bio

Billy Ray Cyrus is an American country music singer, songwriter, actor and philanthropist best known for his Number One single "Achy Breaky Heart" and for starring as Robbie Ray Stewart on the Disney Channel sitcom Hannah Montana, from 2006-2011.

Achy Breaky Heart 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. Thanks to the video of this hit, the linedance 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 the debut of Some Gave All, which has been certified 9x 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's 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 the number 1 in the Billboard Country Albums. 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 the 1992 in the US with 4,832,000 copies. In his career, he has released 35 charted singles, of which 15 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 2006-2011 he co-starred in the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana with his daughter Miley Cyrus.
