Billy Ray Butler (born April 18, 1986 in Orange Park, Florida) is a Major League Baseball Designated Hitter for the Kansas City Royals. He has also played first base, left field and right field. Butler was given the name "Country Breakfast" during the 2011 baseball season.

Butler was selected by the Royals in the first round (14th overall) of the 2004 First-Year Player Draft out of high school and signed for a $1.45 million bonus, $250,000 below the recommended slot value for that pick. He attended Wolfson High School in Jacksonville, Florida, where he was teammates with fellow first round draft pick Eric Hurley, a pitcher selected by the Texas Rangers. He turned down a scholarship to play for the University of Florida to go pro.

He played his rookie season at the age of 18 in 2004 with the Royals Pioneer Baseball League affiliate Idaho Falls Chukars, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, where he batted .373 with 10 home runs and 68 RBIs in 73 games.
