BILLY RAY CYRUS
AND LIL NAS X WIN BET HIP HOP AWARDS

Billy Ray Cyrus is making room on the trophy shelf again as the BET Hip Hop Awards honors the Flatwoods, Kentucky singer-songwriter with two trophies for Best Collab, Duo or Group and Single of the Year with Lil Nas X on the record shattering 19-week No. 1 “Old Town Road” (remix, featuring Cyrus).

“Thank you to the BET Hip Hop Awards and hip hop/rap community for the Best Collab and Single of the Year wins. You kept OTR at No. 1 for 19 consecutive weeks. More importantly, you made me feel welcomed into your home and world. I’m dedicating these wins to Mr. Nipsey Hussle – a legend gone way too soon,” Cyrus shared.

Recently, Cyrus learned he was nominated in the Musical Event of the Year category with Lil Nas X during the 53rd CMA Awards after taking home two MTV VMA Moonmen for Song of the Year and Best Direction for Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (Remix, featuring Cyrus).”

About Billy Ray Cyrus:
Billy Ray Cyrus became a household name over the course of his unprecedented career which spans across music, television and theater. Throughout his nearly three decade career, Cyrus has achieved worldwide success as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer. The Flatwoods, KY native exploded onto the music scene when his first album, Some Gave All, debuted on the all-genre Billboard album chart at No. 1 and stayed there for a record-breaking 17 weeks in 1992. The lead single, “Achy Breaky Heart,” became a phenomenon as the single went multi-platinum. After “Achy Breaky Heart,” Cyrus followed up with back to back hits “It Could’ve Been Me,” “She’s Not Crying Anymore,” “Wher’m I Gonna Live When I Get Home?” and the anthemic “Some Gave All.” Cyrus knocked himself out of the top Billboard position with the his second No. 1 album, It Won’t Be The Last, featuring smash hits “In the Heart of a Woman,” “Words By Heart” and “Somebody New.” Cyrus followed up with dozens more that defined country music. “To me, my most defining moment in country was being joined by George Jones and Loretta Lynn on my self-penned ‘Country Music Has the Blues,’” said Cyrus. He also enjoyed a successful career as an actor in “Doc” and “Still The King,” as well as the Disney series “Hannah Montana” with his daughter Miley. Recently, Cyrus has shattered records with Lil Nas X with the global smash, “Old Town Road,” which has remained No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 19 consecutive weeks. Returning to his Kentucky roots, BBR Music Group/BMG released Cyrus’s new single on July 19 with emerging artist Johnny McGuire titled, “Chevys and Fords,” which Rolling Stone Country proclaimed is “a gently rocking country tune brimming with Springsteen-inspired, vehicle-based nostalgia…finds the two vocalists singing about how they come from a long line of Chevys and Fords.’
