Billy Raye Cyrus
It would be incredibly simple to define Billy Ray Cyrus's entire career by three words: "Achy Breaky Heart." It would also be wrong. Though that song propelled him from unknown to super-known, Cyrus had been working the Nashville and Los Angeles circuits six years before it hit the airwaves. When all's said and done, however, both "Achy" and the debut release that contained it, Some Gave All, continue to dwarf the rest of his career and his catalog. Some Gave All sold over 9 million copies and spent a whopping 17 weeks at the top of the Billboard pop charts. His follow-up, It Won't Be The Last, also went platinum, and his third release did moderately well, but following the lackluster performance of 1996's Trail Of Tears, Cyrus dropped off the music map completely.
Billy Ray Cyrus (born August 25, 1961 in Flatwoods, Kentucky) is an American country singer, best known for the hit single "Achy Breaky Heart" (1992).
Cyrus originally intended to play baseball professionally. He attended Georgetown College on a baseball scholarship, but quit to form a band called "Sly Dog" with his brother. After moving to Los Angeles alone, Cyrus signed to Mercury Records in 1990. The success of Achy Breaky Heart from the album Some Gave All, helped popularized line dancing and made Cyrus a star.
