It could have been worse … it could have been Billy Ray Cyrus twerking

I'm so over this whole Miley Cyrus twerking crap. Seriously, all week it's been all anyone can talk about it seems.

Oh yeah, here I am talking about it. Sorry.

Miley took to Twitter to let her fans know that her dad is supporting her in a most interesting way. She tweeted:


So yeah, it could definitely have been worse. 

On a serious note, Billy Ray is being supportive of his daughter. He told Entertainment Tonight's Nancy O'Dell “Of course I’ll always be here for Miley. Can’t wait [to] see her when she gets home. 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.”

Unfortunately, Billy Ray supporting Miley might just cost him a job. According to Radar Online, the Parents Television Council, of which Billy Ray is on the advisory board, thinks that they might not be the best fit for him any longer, but that it's his decision to make.  

"MTV has once again succeeded in marketing sexually charged messages to young children using former child stars and condom commercials — while falsely rating this program as appropriate for kids as young as 14. This is unacceptable," said PTC Director of Public Policy Dan Isett in a press release, which also attacked Billy Ray's daughter.

"MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate 'twerking' in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds?" the statement said.

Melissa Henson, the Grassroots Director of PTC, told RadarOnline.com exclusively that they have not heard from Billy Ray since they released their statement about Miley's provocative dance with Robin Thicke for his hit song Blurred Lines.

"We would like him to remain a member of the board," she said. "But if he decides that being on the board this is no longer a fit for him that that is his choice."

Sheesh, what a mess.

‘Nashville on the Record 2’ films at the Opry, zooms lens on songwriters

When ABC greenlit their now-wildly success drama Nashville a few years ago, there was cause for concern that such a high-glam spotlight would only be another avenue for the pop-country mainstream. But what the Nashville on the Record franchise has done, elevating what the show has already mastered, is refocus the attention on traditional country music and the format’s talented and severely undervalued songwriters.
