Cyrus has transitioned from his role on the TV drama Doc to a new comedy series on the Disney Channel, Hannah Montana, in which he plays the father to his real-life daughter, Miley. "My objective is just to keep it real and be myself," says Cyrus, who relocated his family to Los Angeles for the show. The singer of the 1992 smash hit "Achy Breaky Heart" also is working on a new album that includes a song called "I Want My Mullet Back" and another, "Country Music," featuring country superstars George Jones and Loretta Lynn.
