Actress/singer Miley Cyrus, who played Kylie on the PAX series Doc and is now the star of the Disney Channel's Hannah Montana, is the daughter of country music singer Billy Ray Cyrus. Miley's real name is Destiny Hope Cyrus. Her happy disposition earned her the family nickname of "Smiley," which was then truncated to its present form. And Miley isn't Billy Ray's only child--of her five siblings, four also have musical aspirations. Her 14-year-old brother Braison Cyrus plays the drums and guitar, her 8-year-old sister Noah Cyrus plays the piano, her 21-year-old half-sister Brandi Cyrus plays guitar, and her 19-year old half-brother Trace Cyrus is a guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter for the band Metro Station ("Shake It").
In 2009, Miley and Billy Ray starred in the big-screen version of her hit TV show, which also features actress Emily Osment, the sister of actor Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense, Forrest Gump). The movie is set and was filmed in the Cyruses' home state of Tennessee.
