Billy Ray Cyrus Complete Bio & Career

Billy Ray Cyrus is a famous American actor, singer and songwriter. This lad from Tennessee struck gold with his maiden album titled Some Gave All in the year 1992. However, things didn’t come easy to him as he had to go through his share of rejections and struggles before he finally made it to the top. During his school and college days, he was into sports and used to play baseball. 
He decided to learn the guitar at the age of 20 and he was so confident that he decided to drop out of college to pursue a career in music. He refined his singing skills and started performing at local clubs and bars. It was country singer Reba McEntire who gave him his first recording contract. After the debut album, he started scaling new highs with each and every album. His intermingling of rock in country music made him different from the rest. Other than that his on-stage charisma, and great personality made him the toast of the US. 
However, there came a warning as sky-high expectations from him led to his downfall as his later albums couldn’t live up to like his initial few albums. After his music career was on a down trend, he turned his attention to acting. He previously did some episodic roles in series such as Top of the Pops, Diagnosis Murder, and 
18 Wheels of Justice among others. He played his first full-fledged role in the medical drama series Doc in the year 2001.  He since then has become regular in television and films and has in between released his albums as well. In an industry where it is hard to maintain at the top, he has retained his morals and humility and continues to be an inspiration and idol to several aspiring young musicians.
