by Madison Miller

Billy Ray Cyrus became famous himself after releasing his hit song, “Achy Breaky Heart” in 1992. However, he also has several famous children that he’s had throughout his life. While the most recognizable are Miley Cyrus and Noah Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus actually has six kids.

Here’s an introduction to his six amazing kids and what they’ve been up to over the years.

Christopher Cody Cyrus

Christopher was born in April 1992. His mom, Kristin Luckey, and Bill Ray had been together briefly. It was right before he would meet his current wife, Tish Cyrus.

He was mostly raised by his mother and his step-dad. Christopher rarely sees the rest of the Cyrus family and reportedly doesn’t really have a relationship with them.

He and Miley Cyrus are only seven months apart but have lived totally different lives.

Miley Ray Cyrus

His most famous daughter is Miley Cyrus. She went from Disney Channel star to full-on global pop icon.

Miley began her success with the TV show “Hannah Montana” on Disney Channel. She starred alongside her father from 2006 to 2011. It is a big reason why the two are thought of together.

Since her time performing as Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus has grown a lot. She has experimented with genres like pop, country, and rock. Miley is also an actress. She has been in “The Last Song,” “Bolt,” as well as episodes of “Black Mirror.” Most notably she was also a judge on “The Voice.”

Her most recent album is “Plastic Hearts.” This album is her most acclaimed on Metacritic and is also her emergence on the Billboard Rock Chart. Over the years she has been known for singles like “See You Again,” “The Climb,” “Wrecking Ball,” “Party in the U.S.A., “Malibu,” and “We Can’t Stop.”

Beyond her music, she is also an activist. She has her own non-profit called Happy Hippie Foundation, which helps fight youth homelessness and aims to protect the LGBT community.

Braison Chance Cyrus

Braison is two years younger than Miley Cyrus. He was the third child that Billy Ray had with his wife, Tish Finley.

Although he isn’t as well known as his two sisters, Braison has also dabbled in the music and film industry.

He has also been in movies like “Heels,” “Doc,” and “Braison Cyrus: Heart is Gold.”

Braison married his wife Stella McBride in November 2019. According to ET Online, the two are expecting a baby soon.

“Extremely blessed and grateful to say that @stellamcyrus and I are expecting our first child. This is our son and he’s due in June. Love this little dude so much already,” he said in an Instagram photo.

He also has a music career. Braison has songs like “I’ll Never Leave You,” “Glass Between Us,” “Heart is Gold,” and “Across the Great Plains.”

Noah Lindsey Cyrus

Noah Cyrus is the youngest of the Cyrus clan. She was born in January 2000.

Alongside her brother, sister, and father, Noah has also had a growing music career. It started when she released her single “Make Me (Cry)” in 2017. She was also nominated for Best Breakup Song at the 2017 Radio Disney Awards and one of Time’s 30 Most Influential Teens.

She was also nominated for Best New Artist at the 63rd Grammy Awards.

He is also a musician. He is the lead singer and guitarist for Metro Station and Ashland HIGH.

Some popular songs from Metro Station include “Shake It,” “She Likes Girls,” “Seventeen Forever,” and “Kelsey.”
