The 'Achy Breaky Heart' singer will pen the memoir Hillbilly Heart, which is to feature stories from his career and tales of raising daughter Miley Cyrus.
Amazon has promised that Cyrus will show "great candour" in describing the highs and lows of raising one of the most famous teen popstars in the world.
Hillbilly Heart will be released in the spring of 2013.
Billy Ray apologised to his family last July for publicly criticising daughter Miley's lifestyle. He and wife Tish also called off plans to divorce.
He has also cautioned that "fame can be dangerous" to those who are unprepared for superstardom.
