Our top 10 Billy Ray Cyrus songs list takes a listen to a Grammy award-winning artist who became a huge star in the early 1990s with the sensational hit single entitled “Achy Breaky Heart.” Many thought that Billy Ray Cyrus would be a one hit wonder at the time. However, his work ethic and talent would prove otherwise. Billy Ray Cyrus has celebrated over a 20-year career in the music business while also appearing in multiple television shows as an actor including his daughters’ famous Disney television show Hannah from Montana featuring Miley Cyrus.

In the early 1990s, when Billy Ray Cyrus was hitting it big with the song “Achy Breaky Heart,” my wife asked if I would take her to see him in concert. I wasn’t particularly thrilled in her asking me to take her to see Billy Ray Cyrus in concert because I knew she would pretty much just be oohing and awwing the whole night long watching the man on the stage pump his hips and give the eye to all the women in the audience. And that’s pretty much exactly what happened.

Billy Ray Cyrus did put on a fabulous show and was highly entertaining. At the end of the concert, he actually stuck around in front of stage and signed autographs and took pictures with so many of the female fans. In fact, it was pretty much all female fans in the entire Nassau Coliseum. I had a huge headache from all the women screaming at the top of their lungs all night long. Now I understood what it must have been like to be in at a Beatles concert.

This top 10 Billy Ray Cyrus songs list will present 10 of his most popular songs that he has released over his 20-plus year career. It will be a combination of songs he has released on his own solo albums and also collaborations he has done with other artists. Billy Ray Cyrus has released sixteen studio albums during his career. His most recent album as of this writing in 2021 was released in 2019 entitled The SnakeDoctor Circus. Billy Ray Cyrus has also released fifty three singles with multiple top 10 hits and a huge number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 that was not  “Achy Breaky Heart.” So here we go presenting 10 very cool Billy Ray Cyrus songs.

# 10 – Achy Breaky Heart

Just like Billy Joel used to open up his concerts many times with “Piano Man,” so he could just get that one out of the way, we’re going to use the same approach to our Billy Ray Cyrus songs list. We open up our top 10 songs list with the famous Billy Ray Cyrus song  entitled “Achy Breaky Heart.” For every person who loves this song, there is  probably one who hates it. It’s  just that type of song. It could be very annoying. Yet it would get you up out of your seat dancing on the floor in a second. That’s what it did.

Part novelty song, but also a song that really contributed to line dancing. How many parties have you been to in the past 20 years when a DJ played this song or a band if you can find one nowadays played this tune, and nobody danced. Don’t think so. They play this song, people get up, they dance, they swing, they embrace and do whatever comes next. The song gets your blood flowing, gets your heart pumping, gets your adrenaline dripping all the way down to you rock and roll country shoes. You know what I’m talkin about baby.
