When you hear the surname Cyrus, your mind either darts to vigorous twerking and low-key vape-toking with Leonardo DiCaprio, or achey-breaky hearts, depending on the year you were born and proximity to the American South. But the prolific family name doesn’t stop at just music and salacious headlines. 

Enter: Brandi Cyrus, the entrepreneurial-minded big sister to everyone’s favorite glittery, little Wrecking Ball who’s blazing onto our radar this season with her killer style blog StyleNative, Web series, and her film-acting debut in the upcoming indie-horror flick Old 37 hitting theatres October 6. With over 535-thousand followers on Twitter and a whopping 635K on Instagram, the elder Cyrus sister and social-media maven is a force to be reckoned with—and not to mention a total knockout stunner—who simply won’t be stopped.

We hung out with the chic Steel Magnolia in her native Nashville as she channeled her rebellious side and opened up about her busy lifestyle, fall style inspo, and why Miley’s haters will never keep her or the Cyrus family down.
