11 of Your Favorite Celebrities Whose Parents Were Famous Musicians
It’s no secret that breaking into the entertainment industry and making it big in Hollywood is no easy feat. In fact, many of today’s biggest actors and musicians had to be rejected multiple times before someone finally took a chance on them. In some cases, celebrities gain fame with a little help from their famous parents.
Even though such individuals are born into the spotlight, they still have to work hard to become well-known names. If anything, they have the added pressure of distinguishing themselves from their parents, or living up to high expectations. Here are a few examples of celebs whose parents were famous musicians back in the day:
Miley first gained fame when she joined her megawatt hit TV show, Hannah Montana. While we all know that Miley is an established singer and actress, she's not the only one in her family. Her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, was a well-known musician back in the day. In the '90s, Billy Ray rocked a mullet and released several successful singles — "Achy Breaky Heart," anyone? — and albums. On Hannah Montana, he basically played his real-life self, acting as Miley's songwriter father, and former musician on the show.
