Billy Ray Cyrus is an American country music singer, songwriter, actor and philanthropist, who helped make country music a worldwide phenomenon.[1][2][3] He has released twelve studio albums and forty-four singles since 1992, and is best known for his number one single "Achy Breaky Heart", which became the first single ever to achieve triple Platinum status in Australia and was the best-selling single of 1992 in the same country.[4][5] Thanks to the video of the song, the linedance entered the mainstream, becoming a worldwide craze.[6][7][8][9][10] Cyrus, a multi-platinum selling recording artist, has scored a total of eight top-ten singles on the Billboard Country Songs chart. His most successful album to date is the debut of Some Gave All, which has been certified 9× multi-platinum in the United States and is the longest time spent by a debut artist at number one on the Billboard 200 (17 consecutive weeks) and most consecutive chart-topping weeks in the SoundScan era.[11][12] It is the only album (from any genre) in the SoundScan era to log 17 consecutive weeks at number one and is also the second-highest selling debut album by a male country artist after Garth Brooks'. It ranked 43 weeks in the top 10, a total topped by only one country album in history, Ropin' the Wind by Garth Brooks.[13] Some Gave All was also the first debut album to enter at the number 1 in the Billboard Country Albums.[14] The album has also sold more than 20 million copies worldwide and is the best-selling debut album of all time for a solo male artist. Some Gave All was also the best-selling album of 1992 in the US with 4,832,000 copies.[15][16] In his career, he has released 35 charted singles, of which 15 have charted in the top 40.
