The "Achy Breaky Heart" hitmaker, singer Billy Ray Cyrus has decided to legally change his name.
The singer shall change his name to only Cyrus by the later of this year and will only release music under his new moniker, reported Rolling Stone.
"After August 25th, I will be the artist formerly known as Billy Ray. I'm just going by my last name Cyrus. 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," he says.
