DOLLY PARTON and MILEY CYRUS A RELATIONSHIP EXPLORED
Dolly was Miley’s godmother, thanks to her close relationship with Billy Ray. In an interview, she revealed: “I worked with Billy Ray during all those years, back when he was suffering from “Achy Breaky Heart. He was a part of the shows we produced in the beginning. He was the host of a few shows I hosted. We’ve only met one another. I composed a song titled “Romeo” and put him in a music video.”
She said, “We just connected since we’re both country-loving. We enjoyed it a lot discussing that. Then, when Miley was born, I told her, “She’s going to be my fairy goddaughter. ‘”
In a different interview, Dolly also said she would offer Miley an example instead of guidance. She stated: “I’d rather be an example than try to instruct someone to do this or that, and so on because I don’t think this is the best way to go. Everybody’s different. Your path is yours. Some people will be there for you on the path and even help you get a few rocks off your path in your direction, but you must walk it.”
