Billy Ray Cyrus Changes His Name

Cyrus Celebrates #AchyBreakyHeart25

Billy Ray Cyrus is changing his name.

From now on, the Still the King star just wants to be known as Cyrus, and he plans to go home to Kentucky to have it legally changed. Also, new music will be released only under his surname.

The reinvention coincides with the 25th anniversary of his breakout hit “Achy Breaky Heart.”

To celebrate, Cyrus returned to Muscle Shoals, Alabama to record a new version of the song with members of the famous Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, the Swampers.
