Billy Ray Cyrus is an award-winning country music legend whose â€śAchy Breaky Heartâ€ť propelled his debut album, â€śSome Gave All,â€ť to the top of the charts for a record-breaking seventeen weeks. Heâ€™s also father of Miley Cyrus, one of Hollywoodâ€™s most successful young stars, who grew up on stage and on screen, most famously as the lead on the Disney Channelâ€™s â€śHannah Montana,â€ť where Billy Ray Cyrus played her father. But sometimes the truth is even better than fiction. Now, for the first time, fans can read about Cyrusâ€™s tenacious and inspiring struggle to find his own way to faith, family, and the power of music. Hillbilly Heart opens during Cyrusâ€™s turbulent childhood in Kentucky, where he sought refuge in music and sports after his parentsâ€™ divorce. He was a troublemaker in training, known more for pulling pranks than for following in his preacher grandfatherâ€™s much-vaunted footsteps. But when he heard a voice telling him to get a left-handed guitar and start a band, this rebel 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 finally made a stratospheric breakthrough, becoming a multi-platinum selling artist and taking his rock-and-roll twist on country music to the worldâ€™s stage. Cyrus fans have always been able to piece together the details of his life through his lyricsâ€”the ups and downs, adventures and disappointmentsâ€”but Hillbilly Heart gives them a front row seat for his most candid performance ever.
