Billy Ray Cyrus Is Going To Change His Name

Billy Ray Cyrus has put out an updated version of "Achy Breaky Heart" to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the song's release.

In addition, he's created two new versions that he plans on releasing – one in Spanglish, the other an EDM version.

He's also dropping his first name and will go simply by Cyrus. He tells 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'm going to the hospital where I was born in Bellefonte, Kentucky, and legally changing my name."

Before signing his record deal in the '90s, he always performed under his last name.
