Billy Ray Cyrus is an award-winning country music legend whose song “Achy Breaky Heart” propelled his debut album, Some Gave All, to the top of the charts for a record-breaking seventeen weeks. He’s also the father of Miley Cyrus, one of Hollywood’s most successful young stars, who grew up on stage and on screen, most famously as the lead on the Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana—where Billy Ray Cyrus played her dad. But sometimes the truth is even better than fiction. Now fans can learn about Cyrus’ tenacious, inspiring struggle to find his own way through faith, family, and the power of music.

Hillbilly Heart opens during Cyrus’ turbulent childhood in Kentucky, where he sought refuge in music and sports after his parents’ divorce. He was a troublemaker in training, known more for his pranks than for following in his preacher grandfather’s much-vaunted footsteps. But when he heard a voice telling him to get a left-handed guitar and start a band, this rebel finally found his cause. Ten years later, after tirelessly working the club circuit and knocking on the closed doors of music executives from Nashville to Los Angeles, Cyrus made a stratospheric breakthrough, becoming a multiplatinum-selling artist and taking his rock-and-roll twist on country music to the world’s stage.

Cyrus fans have always been able to piece together the details of his life through his lyrics—the ups and downs, adventures and disappointments—but Hillbilly Heart gives them a front-row seat for his most candid performance ever.
