Miley Cyrus Net Worth: Brief History
Miley’s father Billy Ray Cyrus is a country music star and probably the reason for her choice of profession. Miley earned huge fame and fortune within a very short period of time. At the age of 9, she enrolled in the Armstrong Acting School of Toronto and immediately became a star. Her dedication to her passion for singing and acting (and a bit of twerking) has made her so successful. In acting school, she was cast in many small roles until 2003 when she was cast in Tim Burton’s movie Big Fish. One of her most famous roles was in the cast of Disney’s Hanna Montana.

Miley spread her wings after her initial introduction to acting and did two albums while still working on the Hanna Montana show. Her soundtrack for the show skyrocketed up the Billboard 200 to number one in 2006. The opening sales were ridiculous and were only to be best by the release of a double-disc the following year, the Hanna Montana soundtrack and Miley Cyrus’s original CD, Meet Miley Cyrus. This album went triple platinum with over 3 million copies being sold in the US. Her follow-up album remained atop the American charts of blockbusters.
