While Billy Ray Cyrus may not be a huge fan of his daughter Miley's latest punk rocker style decisions, this performance is something I'm sure papa bear is proud of.

In a summer 2012 series called the "Backyard Sessions" (before the hairstyle change), the primarily pop-leaning singer got in touch with her country roots and took on a classic Dolly Parton single. The song, "Jolene", was originally recorded by Parton in 1974 - and the style and essence of the original song was surprisingly re-created very well by Miley.

Dolly is actually Miley's godmother. The connection goes deeper than that, with Miley expressing on many occasions an admiration for the country music legend.
