Billy Ray Cyrus

Billy Ray Cyrus quotes: lessons and reflections from the singer-songwriter.

“It’s all about passion. It’s all about making a moment real.”

“But those dreams move on, if you wait too long.”

“You make that climb, take it step-by-step and hopefully the view is great.”

“A trying time is no time to quit tryin’.”

“I recently found a song lyric Miley wrote when she was just a little girl. In one of her old notebooks she had jotted down a quote that read: ‘A dream is a great thing, a dreamer is someone who can make a difference.'”

“Sometimes you have to clear out the junk. And then you realize what’s most important. Whatever is going on.”

“Life doesn’t stop for anyone, and you shouldn’t either, especially not for a guy. Nevertheless, if you like someone and begin playing the chase games—if you don’t text him back or wait for him to text you first, you better believe he will stop chasing you soon enough.”

“I still believe in love. I still believe that a father stands by his family. A family is more important than negativity or darkness or fame or fortune.”

“All I ever wanted was a functional family unit where the mom, dad, brothers and sisters all lived together in harmony.”

“My kids learned to color on this table. There’s been a lot that’s went around this table. Waylon Jennings sat right there in that chair and showed Miley the chords to ‘Good Hearted Woman.’ Sitting in that chair. This table’s a bit like life. It’s a circle. And I believe everything in life is a circle.”

“I’m pretty laid-back as a dad anyway. I built Miley her own home studio as a 16th birthday gift. Miley would never have been Hannah Montana. I just trust her so much. She has a great head on her shoulders and she makes pretty good decisions most of the time. She even has enough common sense that if she makes a bad one, she makes adjustments and knows that’s what life is. It’s a day-by-day, step-by-step journey through life, as she says in the movie.”

“I knew that my little girl was going to grow up, I didn’t know that it was going to happen like so huge, so quick, so enormous around the world, that she would become the next superstar. I look back on it now and wish that we would have just enjoyed the ride a little bit more.”

“All I ever hoped for as a daddy was to see my kids reach their dreams. To find happiness, peace of mind, and someday know true love.”

“Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always been a real deep thinker and stuff.”

“I don’t think there are any accidents in my life.”

“Don’t tell my heart, my achy breaky heart, I just don’t think it’d understand.”

“I am and always will be a sinner. But that’s the beautiful thing about Jesus. I’ll always try to be a better person in the eyes of God. But I’m not all of a sudden stepping up on a pedestal and saying I’m holier than thou, ’cause I’m not!”

“There has always been a battle between good and evil.”

“I always prayed that God would give me the wisdom and the vision to do the things on this earth that I was supposed to do to express His life and love and His will.”

“All gave some, some gave all. Each person has their own calling on this Earth.”

“I’ve had a pretty crazy life. It’s colorful… reliving some of those closets that I had shut, locked and thrown away the key intentionally because it was painful to revisit a lot of those places. Especially the loss of my buddy Robbie Tooley, the divorce of my parents, some of the things I went through as a kid, a lot of that stuff was locked up for a reason. It was painful. But at the same time, there was some therapy in revisiting some of those spots.”

“I have adopted Lil Nas X. At a certain point I said, ‘Man, did I trade in my best years of music to become an actor?’ And then along comes Lil Nas X. He told me the reason he reached out to me was because he said I was the only country dude that he knew because of Hannah Montana. I will always have his back. I feel like I would die for that boy, I really would. I love him so much for being himself and pushing boundaries through his art.”

“I’m so proud of him, and I’ll stand with him till the very end,” he added. “Beyond the love is the respect that you’re looking at a man who used his mind, his human mind, to go somewhere and take down some walls in this music business that had never been taken down before.”

“The people at the record company had asked me if I could write a song about my life, my relationship with God, and where I’m from. Well, I can’t write a song on purpose, my songs come in a moment of inspiration or desperation.”

“It’s about this musical journey. That’s why I make music, you know, to touch people’s lives. It’s that common bond between myself and the fans and the music we’ve shared throughout the years.”

“My latest song ‘Higher Ground’ is so important right now (during the pandemic). This has been a moment that has its own life, its own energy, and its own purpose and I do hope everyone is reaching for higher ground.”

“I’m hungry for purpose. I’m looking for still that reason that I bought a guitar and started a band, to fulfill a purpose, to manifest destiny as to who I am and why I am the way I am, and what I do. I think it’s still about the music, the song and the story. You just keep comin’ with hits and hope one of ‘em is gonna break through.”

“I’m standing at a crossroads. I’m not entirely sure what the future holds. I’m at a crossroads, but it’s a little bit different than the crossroads I’ve been at before because I’m doing what I do because I love it, and doing what I do because it’s pure passion.”

“In life it’s important to remember where you come from. Well, through that message I reminded myself that, yeah man, that applies to me too. You’re Billy Ray Cyrus from Flatwoods, Kentucky. You’re a dude who had a dream, who loves making music. And this is your passion. This is your life. This your legacy, the music you’ve made. Be proud of it and rock on. Don’t worry about charts. Don’t worry about airplay. Don’t make it about those things. Make it about art and because you love what you’re doing.”

“I can’t stop doing this. This is what I love. I love making music. This is my art. I just love it. I just love makin’ music. I’m just gonna keep on doing what I do.”

“My life is like, it’s like, you just won’t believe it. It’s like a movie, or something that somebody would make up.”

“I’m a pretty happy camper.”
