When Billy Ray Cyrus split from his ex-wife of nearly 30 years, Tish Cyrus, fans of the country musician were shocked. However, the ink on the divorce papers has dried and both parties have moved on with their lives.
Now, fans believe Billy Ray Cyrus is on the fast track to love. Billy and Tish’s divorce became official in April 2022, and the musician is already in a serious relationship with singer and songwriter Firerose. In fact, social media users believe that the pair may have marriage on the brain, thanks to a recent Instagram post. So, is Billy Ray Cyrus engaged? Here’s everything we know.
Is Billy Ray Cyrus engaged? On Nov. 16, 2022, Billy Ray announced his engagement to the world.
On Oct. 18, 2022, Billy took to Instagram to share a post of himself and his main squeeze, Firerose. The pair, who frequently take photos with one another, caused quite an eruption on social media thanks to a dazzling sparkler on her finger.
Firerose also shared the same photo on her page with the same caption, which reads, “Happy Autumn.”
Although it took almost a month, Billy Ray cleared up the rumors once and for all by announcing his engagement via People. The musician said he had met Firerose 12 years before when he was on a Disney Channel set.
During his time on the show, there was an area offstage that reminded him of Tennessee where he took breaks. One day, he says, Firerose came through the door and went to pet Tex, Billy Ray's German shepherd.
"She told me she'd had an audition and I said, 'Well, I'm sure you got the job.'" Sadly, Firerose did not get the job, but Billy Ray offered to introduce her to a producer. Firerose agreed, and the duo stayed in touch over the years. The rest, they say, is history!
Billy Ray Cyrus and Firerose first went public with their relationship in the summer of 2022.
Most people may believe that Billy Ray and Firerose are moving a bit too fast with their relationship. However, the heart sometimes wants what it wants.
Additionally, the source shares that Billy and Tish’s marriage was “over before he started dating her.”
The source also reveals the pair “have been dating for a while.” It’s safe to say that the pair took their time before announcing their relationship to the world.
Congratulations to the happy couple! You can listen to their new song together, "Time," anywhere music is sold or streamed.
