Miley Cyrus Heads Back To Nashville For Album Release
Miley Cyrus returned to Nashville on Friday to perform and celebrate the release of her new album Younger Now at a honky-tonk party.
The "Wrecking Ball" singer also answered questions from fans and chatted publicly with her father, country music singer Billy Rae Cyrus, before performing a short set of her new songs.
Younger Now is another music style transformation for Cyrus as she veers away from the dance beats and is now creating a perfect blend of pop and country twang.
With six studio albums under her belt, and long after her Disney days, Cyrus said she is no longer running away from her older hits, but now embracing them.
The singer commented on making the album and touched on what inspired her during the writing process, including her desire for acceptance no matter what a person’s sexuality might be for the track “She’s Not Him.”
Cyrus stayed true to her roots on the album, mentioning “My dad inspired this record a lot,” and also featured her godmother, country music icon Dolly Parton, in the song “Rainbowland.”
The honky-tonk evening ended with a father and daughter performance of “These Boots Are Made For Walking” and Cyrus’ smash hit “Party In The U.S.A.”
