I’m not sure what to think of this, but Billy Ray Cyrus wants to change his name. In an interview with Rolling Stone Country, Billy said that he wants to follow in the footsteps of artists like Madonna, Cher, and Prince. Yes, Bill Ray wants to called by and known by just one name. He wants to be called just Cyrus.
Billy Ray said that he’ll be going to the hospital where he was born in Bellefonte, Kentucky, to make the legal name change. Cyrus said, “After August 25th, I will be the artist formerly known as Billy Ray. I’m just going by my last name Cyrus. I always went by Cyrus, and I begged Mercury Records to call me Cyrus in the beginning because that’s what I was comfortable with.”
