Miley Cyrus is nothing if not enterprising. The most divisive coach on this season’s The Voice, Cyrus is a rookie on the scene who figured she might need more than her cheerful outlook and flower-covered denim to woo reluctant contestants to her team. So she played up her pedigree — just because Miley has broken all the rules doesn’t mean you should forget she’s a Nashville girl, daughter of a legend (Billy Ray Cyrus), and steeped in music lore.
Miley used her country royalty connections during The Voice Blind Auditions to win singer Sophia Urista for her team. After Sophia rocked the Beatles’ classic “Come Together” Cyrus said she sounded like a “rock and roll Dolly Parton” and asked her to turn around. On the video screen, larger than life, was the already larger than life Dolly Parton. “Hey everybody it’s Dolly,” Parton said in the video. “You have just got to pick Miley because she’s my goddaughter.”
