Billy Ray Cyrus Provides Clarification On Name Change


Billy Ray Cyrus has clarified the misconception that he is planning on legally changing his name to Cyrus, saying that that will be the name of his new album, not his actual name.

"After August 25th, I will be the artist formerly known as Billy Ray. I'm just going by my last name Cyrus," he said in April. "I always went by Cyrus, and I begged Mercury Records to call me Cyrus in the beginning because that's what I was comfortable with. I'm going to the hospital where I was born in Bellefonte, Kentucky, and legally changing my name."

However, during an appearance on Live With Kelly and Ryan, Cyrus offered some much needed clarification.

"I'm here to set the record straight. That's the name of the album - 'Cyrus'. Then, subtitled, 'Set the Record Straight,'" Cyrus explained.
