Billy Ray Cyrus sings a sad song and brings up Puff the Magic Dragon in newest Seriously Cyrus

I've often made fun of the always-sad Billy Ray Cyrus, but listening to his song Lately that he performed on the latest episode of Seriously Cyrus with one of the members of his band, Brother Clyde, and Johnzo West and honestly I think I'm digging the whole sad Cyrus vibe. 

Go ahead Billy Ray, be as sad as you wanna be … just next time let's leave Puff the Magic Dragon living by the sea, frolicking in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee, shall we? 

Don't worry, if you watch the video to the end you'll see what I'm carrying on about.  

You can watch the official video for Lately that Billy Ray mentions in the video here. You can purchase Lately on iTunes and Amazon and you can read the lyrics after the jump.

Blake Shelton defends Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber

Who knew Blake Shelton was a Belieber? 

On Tuesday, Blake Shelton had an interesting conversation on Twitter that ended up having him, oddly enough, defending both Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus against the haters.

First off, a guy named L*A*W, a Grammy-nominated guy (not sure for what and I'm too lazy to look), began a conversation about Miley Cyrus' new album only being what it is (debuting at #1) because of her recent twerking and craziness.  

"Miley Cyrus album was only top billing because she twerked on Robin Thicke & swung naked on a Wrecking Ball #FACTS," he tweeted

Lots of people were agreeing with him, but then something interesting happened … Blake Shelton got involved. 

"Billing didn't make her album #1. People paying money for it did," Blake wrote. 

Other fans got involved and Blake countered their arguments with: "You can't sell records with publicity or hype. No matter what anyone says. People buy music because they're moved by the song or artist.."

And then: "Side note: I personally think "Wrecking Ball" is a great song.."
