From now on, the singer/actor just wants to be known as Cyrus, and he plans to go home to Kentucky to have it legally changed. Also, new music will be released only under his surname.
The reinvention coincides with the 25th anniversary of his breakout hit “Achy Breaky Heart.”
The country singer has also recorded a new version of his hit.
Cyrus says that after August 25, he’d be the “artist formerly known as Billy Ray.”
