Billy Ray Cyrus is about to be a Hall of Famer!  Next year, he's going to be inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame.  And we have the details about the ceremony!

Billy Ray Cyrus hails from Flatwoods, Kentucky and got his first big break opening for Reba McEntire at a concert in Louisville.  Of course, his first hit was his biggest.  It was 1992 that Billy Ray Cyrus broke onto and stormed to the top of the country charts with "Achy Breaky Heart" . . . a song that would reach #1 and start a line dance craze across the country.

Ironically, Billy's first number one single would be his last, though he did manage to land six more songs in the Top 10.  In all, Billy Ray has had sixteen Top 40 hits.

He'll be honored next May during a special induction ceremony at the Center for Rural Development in Somerset, Kentucky.  That event is scheduled for May 11th.

Billy Ray is currently on tour and he's starring in CMT’s “Still The King".   Later this year, he will release a new CD called Set the Record Straight.  It is scheduled to drop on November 11. For more information, visit
