HopeTown Entertainment was founded in 2010 by Tish Cyrus to fulfill her lifelong passion for telling beautiful, compelling stories.  At HopeTown, we’re drawn to real characters with a strong emotional core, and a distinct, unique voice. Telling stories across genres and mediums, we always aim to provoke thought and to challenge, uplift, and entertain.



Southern born and bred Tish juggles a successful production company and music management career, all while being a loving mother of five and dedicated wife to Billy Ray Cyrus. Tish has been navigating the music industry since the early 90s with the rise of Billy Ray and after learning the ropes; she launched and managed the wildly successful careers of her daughters Miley and Noah.  Tish first fell in love with creating content when she collaborated with Nicholas Sparks to develop and produce The Last Song. Most recently, Tish has started the second season of her podcast she hosts with daughter Brandi, and is so proud of her kid’s recent accomplishments —   Miley’s newest album Plastic Hearts hit #1 on the Rock Chart and Noah was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2021 Grammys. Tish splits her time between Nashville and Los Angeles.
