30 years of “Achy Breaky Heart”!


Before “Mom Jeans” were a thing, before mullets came back, and before Hannah Montana... there was Billy Ray Cyrus.

On May 19, 1992, Billy Ray released his debut album Some Gave All and blessed the world with the single “Achy Breaky Heart”. In just one year, the album sold over 9 million copies and birthed four Billboard charters.

To date, his album has almost 1 billion streams globally. The single would earn him three Grammy nominations.

While his first album is his best performing, “Achy Breaky Heart” was recently eclipsed in Billy Ray’s discography by the global smash of “Old Town Road”.
