In addition, Miley Cyrus and designer Max Azria of apparel house BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP, Inc. have teamed up to create Miley Cyrus & Max Azria, a new apparel line which launched this month exclusively in Walmart stores and online at Walmart.com. Walmart is also the sponsor of the Miley Cyrus North American Tour.
In 2006, Miley Cyrus landed the starring role in Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana,” which instantly became a ratings blockbuster. That year, the first “Hannah Montana” CD came out on Walt Disney Records, becoming the first TV soundtrack to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. The album is now certified triple-platinum.
With her triple-platinum 2007 two-disc set, “Hannah Montana 2 / Meet Miley Cyrus,” Miley set the stage for her record-shattering “Best of Both Worlds” tour. She also had the #1 film in the country with the Walt Disney Pictures 3-D release, “Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert.” Last summer she released her platinum-certified “Breakout” album, for which she co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks. Cyrus also topped the best-seller list with the release of her first book Miles To Go.
With her starring role in the #1 Walt Disney Picture film, “Hannah Montana The Movie,” Cyrus scored her fourth #1 album with the film’s platinum-certified soundtrack. She is the youngest recording artist ever to claim four #1 albums on the Billboard Top 200 in less than three years.
Cyrus recently wrapped the third season of “Hannah Montana.” A fourth season of the hit series will begin production in 2010.
