Billy Ray Cyrus Has Decided To Go By Just ‘Cyrus’ From Now On

“I will be the artist formerly known as Billy Ray,” Cyrus has announced.

After years of Billy Ray Cyrus’s successful country music career, he’s since passed the musical torch to his kids. While most millennials will only remember him as the doting dad on-screen and off on Hannah Montana with his daughter Miley, others a bit older know him as having released 12 studio albums and 44 singles since 1992.

Although, the Achy Breaky Heart crooner has decided to change things up a bit now.

After August 25th, I will be the artist formerly known as Billy Ray. I’m just going by my last name Cyrus. I always went by Cyrus, and I begged Mercury Records to call me Cyrus in the beginning because that’s what I was comfortable with. I’m going to the hospital where I was born in Bellefonte, Kentucky, and legally changing my name.
