Actress and musician Miley Cyrus has raked in more money during her short career than her country singer father, Billy Ray Cyrus.
Billy Ray Cyrus started his singing career in 1992 with his hit single “Achy Breaky Heart.” His album “Some Gave All” held the No. 1 country music spot for 17 weeks and sold 9 million albums. Recently, he appeared on the popular single “Old Country Road” with Lil Nas X. The country singer also appeared alongside his daughter on the Disney Channel show “Hannah Montana.” Throughout his decades-long career, Cyrus earned an estimated net worth of $20 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth and The Richest.
Meanwhile, his daughter, Miley Cyrus, has outpaced him, earning an estimated net worth of $160 million. Miley’s career started back in 2006 when she starred in her own hit Disney show “Hannah Montana.” She reportedly made $15,000 per episode and raked in even more money while touring as the character. Miley has since built a successful singing career under her own name, with nine top 10 songs on the Billboard charts.

As the executive producer of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and handling all of her children’s dealings, she takes 10% of all Kardashian-Jenner family earnings. In all, she has earned an estimated $90 million net worth.
