Say what you will — Billy Ray Cyrus is one supportive dad.
The “Achy-Breaky Heart” singer who spawned Miley Cyrus called her new “Wrecking Ball” single “a smash” in an interview with Entertainment Tonight’s Nancy O’Dell.
Commenting on public scrutiny to the video’s nudity, Cyrus said, “It wouldn’t have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt, a tux or a nun’s habit.”
Billy Ray, who also defended his daughter’s raunchy MTV VMA performance wants people to focus on her vocal assets, and not her … assets. He concluded, “Her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God given talent.”
