Teen singing sensation MILEY CYRUS has credited her father BILLY RAY CYRUS with
keeping her grounded – despite her status as a worldwide celebrity.
The 15-year-old – who plays pop star Hannah Montana in the Disney show of the
same name – has praised the Achy Breaky Heart hitmaker for leading by example
and respecting those around him.
She tells U.S. chatshow host Oprah Winfrey, “My dad – he’s a big influence,
not only just because of the music but growing up around him.
“I’ve never seen him treat anyone less than with respect and love for
everyone, down to the fans that wait until three in the morning until his bus
pulls out at five.”
