Trace Cyrus

Rock Musician

Born: 24 February 1989
Birthplace: Ashland, Kentucky
Best known as: Lead singer for the band Metro Station

The brother of TV and music star Miley Cyrus, Trace Cyrus is the singer and guitarist who fronts the punk-pop band Metro Station. A high-school dropout with tattoos of skulls and flowers spreading down his arms, Trace offered a teen image just slightly different from his sister's famously wholesome look when she was a Disney Channel sweetheart. Trace and guitarist Mason Musso began playing together in 2006, and formed Metro Station the same year with drummer Anthony Improgo and keyboardist Blake Healy. The band released its self-titled debut album in 2007, and the single "Shake It" was a hit in 2008. Trace is the son of Leticia Finley and Baxter Neal Helson; Leticia later married country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, who adopted and helped raise Trace.

Extra credit:

Trace Cyrus has the words ‘Stay Gold’ tattooed across the knuckles of both hands. The phrase comes from the S.E. Hinton novel The Outsiders, and is inspired by a poem by Robert Frost… Trace Cyrus is the biological half-sister of Miley Cyrus — they share a mother and have different biological fathers.
