Billy Ray Cyrus caused quite the commotion when he announced earlier this year that he was going to change his name to just “Cyrus,” but it turns out that wasn’t exactly the case.  There was a little “misunderstanding” and it was cleared up while he appeared on Live With Kelly and Ryan this week. Billy Ray sat down with Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa and the singer told the hosts, “I’m here to set the record straight. That’s the name of the album – Cyrus. Then, subtitled, Set the Record Straight.” Cyrus went on to explain that he was trying to keep everything under wraps until his birthday on August 25…. which obviously didn’t work out like he had planned.
