Looking back, that decision was a huge deal at the time, but now it just kind of seems like a shrug in the grand scheme of things. There are several scandals that plagued headlines in the '90s and 2000s, many of which you've probably forgotten about or even laugh about in hindsight considering everything that has happened in the world...celebrity related or not. Speaking of Miley, how about that Vanity Fair spread she did with dad Billy Ray Cyrus for the June 2008 cover that raised eyebrows across the globe? In one photo the "Wrecking Ball" songstress posed with her back completely bare, wrapped only in a bed »

Billy Ray Cyrus on TV Comeback: 'It's All About Reinvention'

9 June 2016 11:28 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Two dozen years ago, Billy Ray Cyrus was America's best-selling musician.

Nirvana's Nevermind, Michael Jackson's Dangerous and Whitney Houston's Bodyguard soundtrack all spent time at the top of the Billboard charts in 1992, but nothing remained there as long as Cyrus' debut, Some Gave All, which sold more copies that year than any artist in any genre. Then, as quickly as he'd rocketed to the top, Cyrus began to free-fall out of pop-culture consciousness, taking everything that his now-infamous music video for "Achy Breaky Heart" had so enthusiastically endorsed »

TV Review: ‘Still the King’

8 June 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the star of Cmt’s second scripted comedy — arriving five years after the blue-collar-mom-themed “Working Class”— Billy Ray Cyrus displays a willingness to poke fun at his wholesome image. Unfortunately, being game for self-parody doesn’t mean he does it particularly well, and the hit-and-miss “Still the King” script, partly credited to Cyrus himself, doesn’t help.

Self-satire can be a terrific way to inject a spark into a stalled career. Just ask Neil Patrick Harris, whose dance card was more or less wide open prior to his scene-stealing turn in 2004’s “Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.” But successful self-parody requires a performer to create moments of daring farce that are outrageous and yet convincing enough to win over the audience. Let’s give Cyrus some credit for trying: By attempting to have fun with his image as a fading star, he’s at least displaying a fraction of self-awareness. »
