New York: Actor Billy Ray Cyrus, who announced in October that he was divorcing his wife Tish Cyrus, has called it off for his family`s sake.

"I`ve dropped the divorce," said Cyrus during an interview on TV show ‘The View’, scheduled to air Friday. "I want to put my family back together... Things are the best they`ve ever been."

"I feel like I got my Miley back in a way," he added during Thursday`s taping. "I feel like we are the daddy and daughter that we were before `Hannah Montana` happened."

In October, Cyrus and wife Tish issued a joint statement announcing plans to end their 17-year marriage. But few months later a startling video of their daughter Miley smoking natural herb salvia came out. At that time the 49-year-old had blamed ‘Hannah Montana’ for destroying his family.
