Billy Ray Cyrus’ country singing career took off right about the time he and Tish Cyrus got married. Both he and Tish had been in previous relationships and even had children with other people before they got together. But are they still married after what would almost be 30 years of marriage?
Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife Tish are still married – though it has clearly not been an easy road for them.
Before Tish, Billy Ray was married to Cindy Smith, with whom he co-wrote songs which appeared on his debut album.
These songs are Wher'm I Gonna Live? and Some Gave All, the latter of which became the namesake for his 1992 album.

The couple divorced, though it is not certain at which point this happened.
After this, Billy Ray became involved with two women who both became pregnant and had their children in 1992: Kristin Luckey and Leticia Finley, or Tish.
Kristin gave birth to Christopher in April 1992, after which Tish gave birth to Destiny Hope in November 1992, who later renamed herself as Miley Ray Cyrus.
Billy Ray supported his son, who grew up in South Carolina, while he and Tish secretly married in 1993, reportedly against the advice of his record label.
At the time she was pregnant with their second child, Braison, who was born in 1994, after which their third child Noah was born in 2000.
