Billy Ray Cyrus' achy breaky heart is doing much better, thank you.

After telling the women of The View on Friday that he had "dropped the divorce" from estranged wife Tish, E! News can confirm the country star and father of Miley Cyrus wasn't kidding, formally filing a request on March 11 to withdraw his petition.

"The parties are attempting a reconciliation," read court documents obtained by E! News, which a judge signed granting the dismissal.

Last October, Cyrus filed papers in a Tennessee court to end his 17-year marriage from his missus, citing irreconcilable differences and asking to share custody of the couple's three children, then 17-year-old Miley, 16-year-old Braison and 11-year-old Noah.

A month ago, the mullet man made headlines when, after being asked about his famous daughter's bong-powered partying, he told GQ that Hannah Montana "destroyed" his family and that "he'd erase it all in a second" if he could. A week later Cyrus was in full backtrack mode, saying he and his family "were working together to make sure our future is stronger and healthier."

Meanwhile, Tish just took to Facebook today to smack down an X17 report that claimed the Cyruses were moving out of their Toluca Lake, Calif., home, which is just a few doors down from Miley's pad: "I just woke up to hear I moved yesterday. Somehow I woke up in the same bedroom and made coffee in the same kitchen as I have the last 4 years. Gotta love the Press."

As for Billy Ray, he popped up on The View today to do further damage control, saying he loves Disney and Hannah Montana and that things with his family is the "best they've ever been."

Looks like all the hard work has paid off.
