Billy Ray Cyrus, the iconic voice behind "Achy Breaky Heart," recently took his fans on a sentimental journey back to a cherished memory with his daughter, Miley Cyrus. The throwback picture, accompanied by a poem, not only showcases a tender father-daughter moment but also highlights Miley's journey from a young, aspiring artist to a global superstar.

The Cyruses are looking to strengthen their bond

"One of my best memories ever," Billy Ray captions, reflecting on the time when Miley was just a little girl, their bond unbreakable and full of promise. The photo, taken at the CMA Fest, captures a simpler time, filled with joy and the excitement of what was to come.

Despite the whispers of a growing estrangement following Billy Ray's divorce from Trish Cyrus, his pride in Miley's achievements shines through.

In addition to looking back on the moment, Billy Ray also celebrated her current successes.

"I'm incredibly proud of her," he continued. "She's a survivor and a true artist. She learned early on to love and appreciate the fans who make everything possible. We both cherish the connection we have with our fans and are grateful for every single one of you!"

"The divorce between her parents have put a strain on her relationship with her dad and it's been hard to connect with him in the last year," an insider told 'E! News' in 2022, adding that Miley "has been closer to her mom Tish" and "doesn't have a relationship" with Billy Ray's new wife Firerose, whom he wed in 2023.

The Cyrus family drama has been the subject of much speculation, but Billy Ray's post serves as a reminder of the enduring love and admiration he holds for Miley. Amidst the turbulence, the connection between father and daughter, and their mutual appreciation for their fans, remains a beacon of hope.

Billy Ray Cyrus married Tish Cyrus on Dec. 28, 2003.

At the time they already shared 12-month-old daughter Destiny Hope Cyrus—you may know her as Miley Cyrus now—and Tish was pregnant with their son Braison Cyrus, who was born May 9, 1994.

Seven months before Miley was born on Nov. 23, 1992, Billy Ray's ex-girlfriend Kristin Luckey gave birth to their son Christopher Cody Cyrus on April 8.

As Billy Ray looks back with fondness and forward with pride, it's clear that regardless of the rumors, the bond between him and Miley is built on a foundation of love, music, and memories that can never be erased.
