Billy Ray Cyrus and Firerose, his girlfriend, have sparked engagement rumors after fans spot tell-tale signs that the couple has taken the next step in their relationship.

Cyrus, 61, and his girlfriend, singer Firerose, caused speculation amongst fans after the singer was spotted wearing an engagement ring in a recent photo posted to her Instagram.

In the shot, Firerose is sitting at the end of a stone bench with her left hand placed on her lap, subtly showing off the ring on her finger.

“Taking in the moment…” she captioned the photo, tagging Cyrus as the person who captured the image.

Who is Firerose?

Firerose is an singer/songwriter born and raised in Sydney, Australia.

According to her website, she graduated from the Newtown School for the Performing Arts in Sydney, and at the age of 19, moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. 

"I always believed that my purpose on earth was fulfilled by music,” her website reads, adding she has an interest in "helping people" through song.

“I write from a place in my soul that’s unexplainable and I’m incredibly grateful for this gift that allows me to touch people so profoundly.”

She lists some of her biggest musical inspirations, which include Sia, Alanis Morisette, and Australian rock bands Powderfinger, INXS, and Silverchair.

While it's unclear how long Cyrus and Firerose have been together, the two collaborated on a song titled "New Day" in August 2021. The two later performed it together on "Live with Kelly and Ryan."

Some of her other hit songs include "Way Out," "Fragile Healing," and "No Holding Fire," which she often performs to her 22.5k followers on Instagram.

"The most gratifying thing now is hearing directly from fans, whether it’s comments on the videos, or writing to me personally to tell me how my music has helped them or even saved their life. I can’t begin to explain it, but hearing things like this kills me in a beautiful way,” she writes on her site.

Firerose met Billy Ray Cyrus ten years ago.

While on "Live with Kelly and Ryan," the singer revealed that she'd met Cyrus on the set of Disney's "Hannah Montana."

"We actually met 10 years ago on the set of Hannah Montana,” she shared. “Billy Ray’s been a phenomenal supporter of my music ever since."

"He’s just really believed in me and continued to tell me to pursue my dreams no matter what and not give up. The music industry is not easy, but he’s been just a really, really incredible support [sic]."

Cyrus and Firerose's rumored engagement comes after the "Achy Breaky Heart" singer recently split from his ex-wife, and mother to his children earlier this year.

In April Tish Cyrus filed for divorce after 29 years of marriage citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason, also claiming that the two haven't lived together since February 2020.

The two share who share Miley, 29, Brandy, 34, Trace, 33, Braison, 27, and Noah, 22 — Brandy and Trace are Tish's children from a previous relationship but we were adopted by Billy Ray as children.
