Say goodbye to Billy Ray Cyrus and hello to… Cyrus!
Billy Ray Cyrus decided to drop the Billy Ray part and change his name, as of August 25 he will legally be known as Cyrus. He actually used his last name as his only name in the beginning of his career but his record label made him use his full name.
He told Rolling Stone,
“After August 25th, I will be the artist formerly known as Billy Ray. I’m just going by my last name Cyrus.
I’m going to the hospital where I was born in Bellefonte, Ky, and legally changing my name.”
Billy Ray Cy-…I mean, Cyrus, also re-recorded a new version of his 1992 hit “Achy Breaky Heart,” which turns 25 this year.
