Billy Ray Cyrus' mega-famous daughter Miley Cyrus gets all the attention these days, but we all know he was a major star back in the early '90s.

Who could forget his ubiquitous country hit, "Achy Breaky Heart"? 

Well, ole Billy Ray decided to break out the guitar and dust off those cowboy boots to serenade one lucky lady for Valentine's Day.

Nope, not his wife Tish. 

The object of his musical affections? Ms. Chelsea Handler. 

Chelsea watched on as the formerly-mulleted entertainer performed an acoustic rendition of the famous love song. The "Lately" host even held a single red rose in her hand as she bopped along, laughing.

This may explain a lot about Miley Cyrus.

It also features female dancers wearing pretty much nothing, some Twerking and Larry King. No, really, is opens with an introduction by Larry King.

Watch now, try to make sense of all that's going on and take note of the homage to Billy Ray's daughter:

Considering all he's going through, a lot of folks have advice for Justin Bieber these days.

Drake Bell, for instance, thinks the singer should go back to Canada.

But Billy Ray Cyrus another idea, one that also involves Bieber taking a break from his usual surroundings.

“I would just invite him to come down and chill out with me, maybe in Tennessee," Billy Ray told Access Hollywood last night. "Let’s go up to the teepee, build a fire, step away...  take a break for a little bit, just think about what’s important."

And what would Bieber do there with the man who raised Miley Cyrus?

Did you not get enough Miley Cyrus in 2013?

Good news... plenty more of Miley is on the way in 2014! Along with her entire family!

The Cyrus clan announced this week the creation of "Seriously Cyrus," a YouTube channel that will feature such programs as:

  • Totally Tish (with Tish Cyrus).
  • Sunday Sessions (with Billy Ray)
  • Take 2 (which will involve Noah Cyrus remaking classic film scenes with her friends)
  • Seriously Social (with Brandi Cyrus recapping the family's Twitter and Instagram posts)

Trace Cyrus will also make appearances, though it's unlikely how often we'll see Miley herself.

She does have a very busy career and all, and that's before she even started her campaign to Free the Nipple.

Unlike Sinead O'Connor, Billy Ray Cyrus is a big believer in everything his daughter is doing these days.

With Miley Cyrus engaged in a heated back-and-forth with O'Connor - calling Sinead out for her history of mental illness after that artist advised Miley to remain clothed - father Billy Ray appeared this week on the new Arsenio Hall show.

And he once again stood up for his 20-year old child.

Billy Ray said Miley is "smart" and has "thought this thing out in advance," in regard to her wild, attention-grabbing antics.

He also remarked the she "grew up around the greats," modeling herself after icons such as Johnny Cash. We can't say we saw that comparison coming.

Did Johnny Cash ever thrust his crotch into an iced tea can? If so, it's slipped our memory.

It looks like Mike Will Made It isn't the only fan of Miley Cyrus these days.

During an appearance on Piers Morgan Live last night, father Billy Ray showered his daughter with praise, giving Miley props for shedding her Disney label and taking risks.

“She could’ve stayed Hannah Montana forever and made a great living doing that," he said. "But she’s more of an artist than that and she wanted to make a living and evolve.”

Billy Ray has been making the media rounds ever since Miley Twerked up a controversial storm at the Video Music Awards and then got naked for her Wrecking Ball video.

Following the latter, he gushed over his child's "God given talent."

"I'm a song man," Cyrus said. "I come from the old school where it starts with an artist and a song...colliding if you will...in a moment where the song, the singer, the producer, the band and the listener become one."

Well, sure. Of course. Preach on, Billy Ray...

Billy Ray Cyrus does not believe Miley Cyrus is espousing date rape.

Nor would he label her a pitchy stripper.

"She's still my little girl and I'm still her dad regardless how this circus we call show business plays out. I love her unconditionally and that will never change."

The photo made it clear, but a statement has made it official.

A day after Tish Cyrus posted a picture of herself and her believed-to-be estranged husband, the couple has released a statement that confirms its divorce has been called off.

“We both woke up and realized we love each other and decided we want to stay together," Billy Ray said. "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 filed for a legal split in June, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the basis for their split.
