William Ray Cyrus, commonly known as Billy Ray Cyrus, is a famous American actor, television producer, as well as a singer and songwriter. Billy Ray Cyrus debuted in the music industry in 1992, with the release of his album entitled “Some Gave All”, which remains his best-selling album to date. With singles like “Achy Breaky Heart”, “She’s Not Cryin’ Anymore” and “Could’ve Been Me”, the album succeeded in securing favorable critical reviews, and managed to sell more than 20 million copies around the world. Meanwhile, it maintained a #1 position on the Billboard 200 music chart for 17 consecutive weeks and with more than 4.8 million copies sold in the United States earned a nine-time Platinum certification from the RIAA. Following the success of his debut album, Billy-Ray has released a total of 13 studio albums, the most recent of which entitled “Change My Mind” came out in 2012. Aside from that, Cyrus has starred in a variety of television shows and films, including “Hannah Montana” with daughter Miley Cyrus, “The Nanny” and, more recently, “Sharknado 2: The Second One”.

Billy Ray Cyrus Net Worth $20 Million

A well-known singer and actor, how rich is Billy Ray Cyrus? According to sources, in 2013 his income per season with Syfy Channel amounted to $250,000. In regards to his overall wealth, Billy Ray Cyrus’ net worth is estimated to be $20 million, most of which he has accumulated due to his involvement in the entertainment industry. One of Ray Cyrus’ most valuable assets is his estate, which cost him $5 million.

Billy Ray Cyrus was born in 1961 in Kentucky, United States, where he studied at Georgetown College. Cyrus failed to graduate from college since he intended to focus on his musical career. With goals of becoming a musician, Cyrus joined “Sly Dog” band, yet he soon signed a record deal with the well-known recording company called “Mercury Nashville Records”. In 1992, Cyrus released his most successful album “Some Gave All”, which brought him a lot of public exposure. After its success, the label released his second studio work entitled “It Won’t Be Last”. Even though the album succeeded at peaking at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart, it failed to repeat the success of its predecessor.

In 2006, Cyrus joined the cast of “Hannah Montana”, and later became a part of other related projects, such as “Hannah Montana: The Movie”, which he produced. Cyrus re-launched his singing career shortly afterwards, and even performed with his daughter on the stage of “Dancing with the Stars” show. More recently, in 2014 he appeared in “Sharknado 2” film, and was featured in a documentary television series called “The Haunting of…”. Currently, Cyrus is filming for an upcoming movie called “Still the King”.

In regards to his personal life, Billy Ray Cyrus married Cindy Smith in 1986, yet the couple broke up in 1991. Two years later he married Leticia Cyrus, with whom he has 3 children, namely Noah Lindsey, Braison Chance and Miley Cyrus.

#Quote
1 [on wishing Hannah Montana (2006) never happened] I hate to say it, but yes, I do. Yeah. I'd take it back in a second. For my family to be here and just be everybody okay, safe and sound and happy and normal, would have been fantastic. Heck, yeah. I'd erase it all in a second if I could.
2 [on Mulholland Dr. (2001)] Were it not for David Lynch, Miley would never have been Hannah Montana... I love him-he changed my life... I did feel a little bit dark. I remember feeling, 'This might not be what God had in mind.
3 [on Hannah Montana (2006)] Oh, it's huge-it destroyed my family. I'll tell you right now-the damn show destroyed my family. And I sit there and go, 'Yeah, you know what? Some gave all.' It is my motto, and guess what? I have to eat that one. I some-gave-all'd it all right. I some-gave-all'd it while everybody else was going to the bank. It's all sad.
4 [on Miley Cyrus] How many interviews did I give and say, 'You know what's important between me and Miley is I try to be a friend to my kids'? I said it a lot. And sometimes I would even read other parents might say, 'You don't need to be a friend, you need to be a parent.' Well, I'm the first guy to say to them right now: You were right. I should have been a better parent. I should have said, 'Enough is enough-it's getting dangerous and somebody's going to get hurt.' I should have, but I didn't. Honestly, I didn't know the ball was out of bounds until it was way up in the stands somewhere.
5 Today you can build a worldwide following off the Internet, and that's a game changer. This is a great time for music. Anything you can think about, musically, you can do. It's a wonderful thing.
6 I still think you gotta be in the union. It's a great move of solidarity, and if you're not it will inevitably come back to haunt you.
7 Country music will always be about heart, soul, and real life. I'll go with the philosophies of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Carl Perkins. Each of those three great legends gave me the same advice at different times. Each one said, "Cyrus, stay true to your music. And be real. Be who you are. Don't be chasing trends. Don't be chasing what's the next thing that's going on. Just be real".
8 I've tried setting appointments to write songs at a specific time, but I've never had any luck with that whatsoever. A lot of great songwriters make their living doing that. Unfortunately, I have to be living it and going through it. I use the word 'unfortunately' because a lot of my songs are sad, you know?
9 (On writing songs that involve the military ) If you're familiar with 'Some Gave All ' you know that there's a break in the middle and you could hear Boom, Boom, Boom. I extended the pause on out to eight, to sixteen, just holding it out until a soldier said, 'Keep going, Mister Cyrus. We're used to it.'
10 [to Jesse Eisenberg, after Eisenberg's The Social Network (2010) and Rio (2011) came out]: Congratulations on everything man; you're handling all the success with a great deal of pride. And the way you carry yourself in public- it's impressive to watch you. Just keep your head up and enjoy the ride; it's going to be fun. You're going to have a long career.
