Billy Ray Cyrus Featured In New CMT Series

Fifteen years after "Achy Breaky Heart" made him and his mullet an international sensation, Billy Ray Cyrus struggles to balance the obligations of fame and family. This four-part special Billy Ray Cyrus: Home at Last follows Billy Ray as he navigates Hollywood, a whirlwind tour and the sensibilities that come with being dad to pop phenom Miley Cyrus, star of the Disney Channel series, Hannah Montana.

As a full-time dad, singer, songwriter and actor, Billy Ray is forced to make some tough decisions along the way, which include spending long stretches of time away from his family. Billy Ray Cyrus: Home at Last is a candid, inside look at how the country music star manages his career and family responsibilities. We find him preparing to head out on tour, trying to please his fans and fighting to spend time with his family, including Miley, who is also on tour.

In 1992, Cyrus took the country music world by storm with the breakout single, "Achy Breaky Heart," which drove his debut album Some Gave All to sell more than 9 million copies. The multi-platinum superstar has released 10 albums and held multiple chart-toppers, including "Could've Been Me" and "Busy Man." His TV work includes starring roles on Hannah Montana with his daughter Miley and the Pax series Doc. He was featured in ABC's Dancing With the Stars. Cyrus' latest single, "Ready, Set, Don't Go," is a duet with Miley, and is from his Home at Last album.

The first episode of the series airs this Saturday, November 24th at 9:30pm on CMT. Check it out and learn more about Billy Ray!
