The daughter of country singer, Billy Ray Cyrus rose to stardom well before she was gyrating with a foam finger at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Cyrus was cast in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana, about a schoolgirl with a secret double life as a teen pop star and quickly rose to to teen idol fame. In 2007 she signed a four-album deal with the Disney owned Hollywood Records.  The first  served as the soundtrack to the second season of Hannah Montana, while the second acted as Cyrus’ debut studio album. Cyrus’ image matured and she moved onto RCA Records and promoted her fourth records Bangerz and well we all know where she is now!
