Two months after Billy Ray Cyrus and Firerose got married, they had another reason to celebrate: her birthday! Read the “Achy Breaky Heart” artist’s tribute in honor of her big day.

Billy Ray Cyrus is a busy man wishing Firerose a happy birthday.

The country music artist celebrated his wife’s big day Dec. 11 with a sweet shoutout on social media. Posting a video set to “Happy Birthday to You,” Billy Ray wrote on Instagram, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL LOVE OF MY LIFE.”

Firerose appeared to appreciate the gesture, too. “Love you!!!” she wrote in the comments with Billy Ray then responding, “I LOVE YOU.”

Billy Ray wasn’t the only member of the Cyrus family to send Firerose some love. So did his 23-year-old daughter Noah Cyrus—one of the five children he shares with ex Tish Cyrus along with Brandi Cyrus, 36; Trace Cyrus, 34; Miley Cyrus, 31; and Braison Cyrus, 29.

“We love u!” Noah, who is engaged to Pinkus, wrote in the comments underneath one of Firerose’s posts. “Happy birthday from me n pinks!!!”

And Firerose loved the year she’s had, too. In a series of photos, the singer looked back at a number of moments with Billy Ray—who also shares son Christopher, 31, with ex Kristin Luckey—including their October wedding, appearances on The Kelly Clarkson Show and Good Morning America and their red carpet debut as a couple at the 2023 ACM Awards.

“Birthdays always make me reflective…” she captioned the post. “I can honestly say this year has been my favorite on earth so far. I married the love of my life, connected with some of my heroes, made friends with truly exceptional souls, signed with my dream team & collaborated with some of my all-time creative idols. I’ve never been more extraordinarily grateful to God or excited for the year ahead!”

Until that year ahead, take a look back at Billy Ray and Firerose’s love story that’s sure to cure any achy breaky heart.


Billy Ray Cyrus‘ first encounter with Firerose came when he was taking a break with his dog on the set of Hannah Montana, the hit Disney Channel series he starred on with his daughter Miley Cyrus from 2006 until 2011.

“On that given day, Firerose came out of the front door,” the “Achy Breaky Heart” singer told People. “There was almost a moment of, I don’t know, recognition. I was like, ‘This girl’s a star.'”

While Cyrus had no idea who Firerose, then 22, was at the time, his future fiancé definitely knew who he was. “Growing up in Australia, my love of music was predominant over everything,” she said. “I’ve known his music since forever.”

There for an audition, Cyrus offered to introduce Firerose to the Hannah Montana crew and invited her to watch the show’s rehearsal.

“She met a lot of the cast and met the producers, writers,” he said. “And, in some ways, well, in a lot of ways, we became friends.”


While the duo stayed in touch—”Our friendship was so solid over the years,” Firerose told People—their bond grew when they became songwriting partners during the pandemic.

“She plays all of her own instruments and writes her own songs,” Cyrus explained. “We began sharing music, and it just evolved.”

July 2021

Cyrus and Firerose released their first song together “New Day,” which they collaborated on amid Cyrus’ private marital strife. Tish Cyrus filed for divorce for a second time in April 2022, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split and noting they hadn’t lived together since February 2020.

“Billy confided in me a lot of what was going on in his life,” Firerose explained. “I was just the best friend I could possibly be, supporting him.”


April 2022

After finalizing his divorce with Tish and “a lot prayer,” Cyrus was ready to move on and asked Firerose to be more than friends.

“When we began sharing the music, it just evolved more into, as musical soulmates, to soulmates, happy, pure love that to me, I didn’t know could exist,” Cyrus said. “Again, we’re musicians, first and foremost, both of us. And we found this harmony, and this rhythm, this melody to life.”

Soon after they began dating, Firerose moved to Cyrus’ Franklin, Tenn., farm.
