Billy Ray Cyrus Is Returning to 90210! What Brings Him Back to Town?

Billy Ray Cyrus, 90210

The cowboy's coming back to town...or should we say the cowboy's father!

We've exclusively learned that Billy Ray Cyrus (yes, Miley's dad!) will be returning to 90210 later this season to reprise his role as Austin (Justin Deeley)'s father, country western star Judd Ridge. Yee-haw, indeed!

So why is Papa Ridge coming back to town? And which of our characters will he be helping out?

Cyrus will return for the CW soap's 22nd episode, which is set to air later this spring.

While the country crooner will be performing "Hillbilly Heart" on 90210, that's not the only reason he's gracing America's most famous zip code again: It seems Austin will ask his father to try to use his music connections to help out Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes).

Also returning to 90210 later this season? Our friends over at Zap2it report that Trevor Donovan, whose fan favorite character Teddy exited the show earlier this season, is set to make an appearance.

90210 returns Tuesday, March 6, at 8 p.m. on the CW.

Are you excited for Cyrus' return to 90210? Psyched to see him perform on the show? Sound off in the comments!
