Publisher's Summary

Billy Ray Cyrus is an award-winning country music legend whose "Achy Breaky Heart" propelled his debut album, Some Gave All, to the top of the charts for a record-breaking 17 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’s 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 multi-platinum-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.

A Humble Hero and Superstar!

Loved It! Extremely well written and read.

This Man's story is heart wrenching.....
I couldn't stop listening.

Why didn't I know about all of his Albums after Achy Breaky and Some Gave All!! He struggled hard for his recognition.

Shame on Hollywood and Mainstream Media for not making this man's good news a priority over all the decades.. They always want a bad news story.

I'm going to buy all his records and watch all of his movies.

A good heart in a good man is hard to find! You will find it here! we need more of this.

God Bless the Cyrus Family....

Excellent choice in Narrator!
