Billy Ray Cyrus just tied the knot with his partner Firerose. They have been officially dating in 2022 and now have tied the knot in an intimate ceremony.
Keep reading to learn more about a detail some fans noted.
Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus filed for divorce for the third time and announced the news in April 2022 after 28 years of marriage. Soon after, Billy Ray Cyrus began dating Firerose, an Australian artist. They announced their engagement in November 2022.
The two of them had met years earlier, when 13 years ago, Firerose had auditioned for a role on Hannah Montana. The country singer recalled the first time he saw Firerose. He said, “There’s a couple old pine trees on the lot that look like Tennessee. Tex (his dog) and I would go out there in the middle of the day, and he’d take care of his business. And we’d stretch, and I’d think how much I missed Tennessee. On that given day, Firerose came out of the front door. There was almost a moment of, I don’t know, recognition. I was like, ‘This girl’s a star.’
He went on, “She told me she’d had an audition, and I said, ‘Well, I’m sure you got the job.’”
While Firerose did not get the part, Cyrus made introductions for her to a couple of producers.
“I just thought, well, the casting agents, the producers, the writers, they’re all on the floor of where we do Hannah Monatana. And I actually said to her, ‘Don’t ever take a strange man up on this offer, but, in this case, Tex will testify that you will be totally safe,” he said.
“‘I’m going to introduce you to a producer, and you can kind of make yourself at home and watch us rehearse and, you know, maybe it might lead to a role or just another contact at Disney.’ And, so, off me and her and Tex went back to the studio. And I think she met a lot of the cast and met the producers, writers. And, in some ways, well, in a lot of ways, we became friends,” the crooner shared.
The couple stayed friends till Cyrus asked Firerose to be more than friends after his divorce early last year. She moved in with Cyrus in August 2022 and shortly after he proposed.
“Billy looked at me and said, ‘Do you, do you wanna marry me?’ And I was just like, ‘Of course I do. I love you,’” Firerose recalled the moment. “He said, ‘I love you. I wanna make this official. I wanna be with you forever.’”
His wedding to Firerose just comes a couple of months after his ex-wife Tish remarried as well. She married “Prison Break” star Dominic Purcell in August of 2023.
Tish’s two children from her earlier relationship — Brandi, 36, and Trace, 34 — were in attendance and were in photographs with Purcell and two of his four children for the media. Billy Ray had adopted Brandi and Trace while he was married to Tish. The couple had Miley Cyrus, Braison, and Noah together.
Noah and Braison were noticeably absent from their mother’s wedding. On the day of the wedding, the siblings were together and posted temporary stories on Instagram about their outing to Walmart while Noah was wearing a Billy Ray shirt.
It is unclear whether any of Cyrus’ children attended his wedding to Firerose.
As the couple posted pictures from their wedding day on social media, some fans took issue with one detail: Billy Ray Cyrus’ hair! One person wrote, “Could have at least brushed his hair for the occasion.” While another asked, “He couldn’t comb his hair??”
Another person added, “All that money and no hair brush????”
It is clear people had a lot of questions about Billy Ray Cyrus’ hair and why he chose to style it the way that he did.
