Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Billy Ray Cyrus wants to be one big happy family. 

Cyrus is trying to do some damage control after he told GQ magazine that Hannah Montana destroyed his family.  He also said he was concerned about daughter Miley because of the people who are surrounding her.

Billy Ray's comments to GQ reportedly infuriated Miley.  Rumors also surfaced she was so incensed she ordered her father to bail on his scheduled appearance on The View this week.

Billy Ray Cyrus tells People, "It is very important to me to work on mending my family right now."  While admitting his remarks were "explosive and unintentionally so," Cyrus added, "My family is the most important thing I have, and we are working together to make sure our future is stronger and healthier.  It is all a learning process, and we thank everyone for their support and respect of our privacy as we sort through very important family issues."
