Billy Ray Cyrus shares best memory with daughter Miley amid feud

Billy Ray Cyrus recently took to Instagram to share a heartfelt memory with his daughter Miley Cyrus, amidst ongoing rumors of a family feud. The country music star posted a nostalgic photo of himself holding a young Miley at the CMA Fan Fest, reminiscing about the special moment and expressing his pride in her achievements.

“One of my best memories ever: @cma Fest, back when it was Fan Fair,” Billy Ray captioned the photo. “That’s @mileycyrus and me, surrounded by thousands of incredible fans at the fairgrounds. The next day, someone handed me this picture, and I wrote that poem right then on the bus.”

In his post, Billy Ray also celebrated Miley’s success, calling her a “survivor and a true artist.” He praised her for learning early on to appreciate her fans, a value they both share. “We both cherish the connection we have with our fans and are grateful for every single one of you! Hope you all have a great Friday! Now rock the country!!!” he added.

The post comes at a time when rumors of a rift between Miley and Billy Ray have been circulating for months. Speculation about the family feud intensified after Noah Cyrus did not attend their mother Tish Cyrus’ wedding to Dominic Purcell in August 2023. Instead, Noah and her brother Braison spent the day together, even sharing a since-expired Instagram story of an outing to Walmart, where Noah wore a Billy Ray shirt.

Miley, on the other hand, played a significant role in her mother’s wedding, serving as the maid of honor and walking Tish down the aisle. The event was also attended by Brandi and Trace, but the absence of Noah and Braison was noticeable.

Adding fuel to the fire, Miley and Billy Ray do not follow each other on Instagram. This social media snub became more apparent when Miley won her first-ever Grammy Award earlier this year. During her acceptance speech for record of the year for her hit song “Flowers,” Miley thanked her team, Columbia Records, her mother, Brandi, and her boyfriend Maxx Morando, but notably left out her father and other siblings.

“I want to thank everyone that’s standing on this stage right now, Tom, Tyler, Michael, and Greg,” Miley said during her speech. “Our teams, my team, Crush, Columbia, my mommy, my sister, my love, my ‘main gays,’ because look how good I look. Anyone else? Your wife, your fiancée, all the people that we love. Thank you all so much.”

Billy Ray did not publicly congratulate Miley on her Grammy wins. However, he shared an Instagram post a few days after the award show with a caption that some fans interpreted as a subtle reference to the rumored feud. “Love is the answer,” he wrote alongside a photo of himself with his new wife, Firerose.

The family dynamics have been strained since Billy Ray and Tish finalized their divorce in 2022. Billy Ray married Australian singer Firerose in October 2023, while Tish married Dominic Purcell in August of the same year. Miley’s absence from her father’s wedding and her prominent role in her mother’s nuptials have only added to the speculation of a family divide.

An insider revealed that the divorce has put a strain on Miley’s relationship with her father. “The divorce between her parents has put a strain on her relationship with her dad, and it’s been hard to connect with him in the last year,” the source said.

Despite the tension, Billy Ray’s recent Instagram post shows his continued support for Miley. “I’m incredibly proud of her. She’s a survivor and a true artist,” he wrote. “She learned early on to love and appreciate the fans who make everything possible.”

While Miley has not publicly acknowledged her father’s post, the gesture indicates Billy Ray’s desire to mend their relationship. Fans and family members alike hope that the estrangement won’t last forever and that the Cyrus family can find a way to heal.

As the family navigates these challenging times, Billy Ray’s tribute to Miley serves as a reminder of the deep bond they once shared. Whether or not they can reconcile remains to be seen, but the love and pride Billy Ray expressed in his post are undeniable.
