Billy Ray Cyrus and wife announce divorce

- Associated Press - Wednesday, October 27, 2010

NEW YORK (AP) - Billy Ray Cyrus and wife Tish are ending their 17-year marriage. The parents of teen sensation Miley Cyrus have filed for divorce. In a statement released Wednesday, the pair said it was a "very difficult time for our family."

They said they were trying to "work through some personal matters" and they appreciated support.

Though 17-year-old Miley is the biggest star in the family now, it was Billy Ray Cyrus who put the Cyrus name on the map in 1992 with the instant classic "Achy Breaky Heart."
