Billy Ray Cyrus, whose breakout hit “Achy Breaky Heart” was recently voted one of the “Worst Songs of the ’90s” in a Rolling Stone poll, has landed a guest appearance on The CW teen soap 90210.
Billy Ray will appear as Judd Ridge, Austin’s dad, in an episode of the show airing in November, Entertainment Weekly said Monday. Cyrus is the latest musician to sign up for an appearance on the Tuesday night drama, succeeding Brandy and Kellie Pickler.
It’s the first acting gig for the country star since he departed his role on daughter Miley’s Disney Channel series Hannah Montana in 2010. Cyrus’ movie credits include The Spy Next Door and Mulholland Drive.
