SO Envious!! Why is Dolly Parton Miley's Godmother? Let's REVEAL Their Sweet Relationship!

Miley Cyrus is the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, as was made clear during her Disney days on Hannah Montana. Dolly Parton also appeared as her Aunt Dolly, so clearly, there is a link between them. In real life, that link still exists, and some even think they are related.

Why is Dolly Parton Miley Cyrus’ godmother?

Dolly Parton is not actually related to the Cyrus family by blood, but by a close familial bond as she was made Miley’s godmother.

In fact, Dolly prefers the term “fairy godmother” as it is less “official”.

This came about actually because of Dolly’s link with Miley’s father, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, who she met in the 1990s.


Dolly and Billy Ray originally met when they toured together soon after the release of Billy Ray’s most famous single, Achey Breaky Heart.

Rather than sparking rumours of them being related, however, it instead sparked romance rumours, as Billy Ray revealed in an interview with Closer.

He said: “When I was on her tour, there was a headline that she and I were romantically involved.

“Dolly looked me straight in the eyes and said, ‘Honey, that s*** sells records!’”

Dolly sang this song with Miley and various other performers at the Grammys in 2019.

The pair are evidently incredibly close, with Dolly telling Anderson Cooper: “I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like but she’s a special gal and I hope she does great in this world.”

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight about Dolly, Miley said: “She teaches people not to judge a book by its cover, or its huge boobs or its big hair.”

Clearly, the families are very close, despite not being blood-related.
