Of course, Billy Ray Cyrus’ comments to GQ didn’t exactly end his career. A few years later, he teamed up with Lil Nas X for “Old Town Road,” which brought him back to mainstream fame. As for his family, it also certainly seemed as though things were pretty good. Case in point: in one episode of her pandemic podcast, “Bright Minded: Live with Miley Cyrus,” his daughter joked about FaceTiming him while he sheltered in place in Nashville. 

As we now know, it was during the pandemic that Billy Ray’s marriage to Tish Cyrus finally came to an end. However, in 2022, he revealed that during that period of separation and divorce, he was growing closer to bestie-turned-wife, Firerose. Granted, that might not have been the worst thing in the world (after all, he told People that the entire family was on board with the marriage ending). However, the story of how he met Firerose certainly led to a lot of raised eyebrows. 

Speaking to People, Cyrus revealed that he’d been filming “Hannah Montana” when he bumped into his now-wife. At the time, she would have been in her early 20s, while he was approaching 50 — but more importantly, shooting a Disney TV show with his daughter. Nevertheless, he gushed that he was blown away by her, and did everything he could to help make her a star. Over time, that turned into friendship … and now they’re married.
