Billy Ray Cyrus: Failure Is An Ingredient For Success

Posted: Updated:

Country superstar Dolly Parton said, "The first time I met Billy Ray I felt like I'd known him all my life. I still feel the same way today. He is a warm feeling in my heart and a sweet thought on my mind. He seems like family to me. I've always been interested in his life, his success, and his children, especially my beautiful fairy goddaughter, Miley."  

A lot of people have warm feelings for Billy Ray Cyrus, and he writes about those friends and fans in his new book, "Hillbilly Heart."  Billy Ray talks about the new book, his huge hit, "Achy Breaky Heart," and his daughter Miley, with Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.

Billy Ray will discuss his book and perform tomorrow night at 8:00pm at the Moss Theatre on Olympic Boulevard in Santa Monica. Click HERE for info.
