Billy Ray Cyrus was honored recently by his home state of Kentucky for his work toward ending violence against women.
Cyrus was one of a handful of honorees invited to the Governor's mansion for a luncheon hosted by Judi Patton, wife of Kentucky's governor Paul E. Patton, as part of her White Ribbon Project.
Included in Cyrus' accomplishments -- a public service announcement about family violence and an episode of his PAX-TV series "Doc" entitled "Enough is Enough," which deals with the same topic.
Although Billy Ray wasn't able to attend the luncheon due to his filming schedule, he did send a message:
"I am proud and humbled to accept this award as a Kentuckian and to share my dedication to making my home state, and the entire nation, a safer and better place for families. When it comes to the harm any man would commit against a woman, we have to say 'enough is enough.' "
