Country Singer Billy Ray Cyrus and wife Tish Cyrus, aka the parents of pop divetta Miley Cyrus, aka Hannah Montana, have decided to work things out and stay together, after announcing in June that they were divorcing after 19 years of marriage.

On June 14, news broke that Miley Cyrus' mother Tish filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences," but on Saturday, Tish posted a glowing photo of her and her husband snuggling up to each other on Instagram with the caption "Date Night."

The couple also released a statement explaining they were seeing a marriage counselor and improving their relationship.

"We both woke up and realized we love each other and decided we want to stay together," they say in a statement, according to People magazine. "We both went into couples therapy something we haven't done in 22 years of being together, and it's brought us closer together and really opened up our communication in amazing ways. Tish also said marriage can be really hard especially after 22 years of being in entertainment. We've had rough times but we both realized we didn't want to be another statistic and wanted to make it work."

Just ten days after announcing their split, the family was seen lunching together in North Hollywood.

The couple has had a rocky relationship the past few years. In 2010, Billy Ray filed for divorce but withdrew his filing five months later. Appearing on "The View," Billy Ray Cyrus announced that he had a change of heart.

"I want to put my family back together," the 51-year-old "Achy Breaky Heart" singer said at the time, according to the New York Daily News.

The couple has five children together, including Miley.

The same day that news broke that her parents were splitting, Miley posted on Twitter that she could not get in touch with her father. She posted other tweets that she soon deleted insinuating she was angry and that there was a lot the world didn't know about why her parents were divorcing.

"@billyraycyrus since your text and email obviously aren't working would you like to talk like this?" she wrote.

The "We Can't Stop" singer didn't comment further or offer an explanation for the tweets.

The first time Miley's parent's relationship hit the rocks, Billy Ray said in a revealing interview with GQ Magazine that Miley's Disney Channel show "Hannah Montana," which led to her rise to fame, "destroyed" their family, according to the New York Daily News.

"It destroyed my family. I'll tell you right now - the damn show destroyed my family," he told the March 2011 issue.
