Initially written off as a "one-hit wonder" after failing to revisit the oversaturated heights he reached with his cloying country hit "Achy Breaky Heart," Billy Ray Cyrus was in the right place at the right time with the right look, and his catchy hit helped usher in the era of New Country; however, he was soon eclipsed by lasting talents like Alan Jackson and Garth Brooks. When Cyrus turned his attention to acting, he proved an even bigger success as an appealing and competent actor in family entertainment like the PAX series "Doc" (2000-04). Daughter Miley's breakout as a Disney teen star ushered in a comeback for Cyrus, with his co-starring role as the country star father of Miley's pop star character in the lucrative "Hannah Montana" franchise, which included an Emmy-winning television series, feature film spin-off, live touring, and an unstoppable merchandising juggernaut. A father-daughter duet "Ready, Steady, Don't Go" landed Cyrus back on the music charts, even as he became a target for the increasingly sexualized image of the wholesome network's pole-dancing teen. Regardless, Cyrus had managed to put "one-hit" status behind him and rise from the ashes at the center of a multi-media family empire.
