Billy Ray Cyrus Reminds Us He’s a Badass — Storms Out of Radio Interview

Written by , Posted in General

If there’s anything good that can come out of Billy Ray Cyrus’ divorce, it’s an image makeover.  In recent years he’s been in the press because of Miley Cyrus, and he’s come off as a doting father who borders on naive.  If you’ve been a country music fan as long as I have, then you remember the days of Achy Breaky Heart, when women swooned for the country music bad-boy.   In a radio interview with Woody Johnson of Woody and the Wake Up Call, Cyrus got pissed when asked about his divorce and stormed out of the interview.  I imagine Cyrus’ anger had to do with being promised prior to the interview that he wouldn’t be asked about his divorce, presumably to reel him in and then zing him with the question for ratings.  It’s not an uncommon tactic, but it’s pretty disgusting if it’s true.  Congrats to Billy Ray — let the bad-ass return.
