Billy Ray Cyrus and His Hillbilly Heart

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Country music star Billy Ray Cyrus talks about his life and finding his own way to faith, family, and music. His memoir Hillbilly Heart tells of his turbulent childhood in Kentucky, where he sought refuge in music and sports after his parents’ divorce. When he heard a voice telling him to get a left-handed guitar and start a band, he found his cause. Cyrus looks back at his stratospheric breakthrough with “Achy Breaky Heart.”
