She might be the best known for her role in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana (2006-2011), and also for her chart-topping songs, including Party In The U.S.A., We Can’t Stop, and Wrecking Ball. Let’s learn more about her life, career, and earnings.
On 23rd November 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, U. S., Leticia Jean Finley and Billy Ray Cyrus welcomed their daughter Destiny Hope Cyrus into this world. Her parents believed that she would accomplish great things, and that is why they named her Destiny Hope. Because of her smiles as an infant, they also gave her a nickname Smiley, which they later shortened to Miley. In 2008, she changed her name to Miley Ray Cyrus. Her godmother is an American famous country singer Dolly Parton. Cyrus has two siblings: a brother Braison, and a sister Noah. She also has three step-siblings: two of her mother’s children from her previous relationship, Brandi and Trace; and her father’s child, Christopher Cody.

At the age of seven, Cyrus auditioned for the role of Hannah Montana’s best friend, but she was called to audition for the lead role instead.
