Miley Cyrus Dishes on Musical Inspirations—from Father Billy Ray to Elvis Presley—at Album Release Party

Not that anyone’s keeping track, but it’s safe to say this was the first album release party that began with a guest appearance by a puppet.

And that was just Act I of Miley Cyrus’ three-act extravaganza, thrown for about 150 super-fans who packed into the third floor of Nashville’s most iconic downtown honky-tonk, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, on Friday night to celebrate the release of Younger Now.

The new album is a declaration by the 24-year-old artist, who’s spent the past decade successively reinventing herself, that she’s now embracing all her former selves (yes, including those Hannah Montana years) – and Cyrus put an exclamation point on it by throwing her release party back in her countrified hometown.

Her embrace also explains the puppet, a tiny ginghamed girl doll that debuted in the video for the “Younger Now” single.

“Look at Baby Miley’s dress!” Cyrus, 24, exclaimed as she popped up in the puppet’s elaborate theater set. “This is a dress that I used to wear when I was a little girl!”

The puppet was there, she explained, to “represent that the same person that’s standing here right now is the same person that’s here beside me, which is Baby Miley, which is always inside me.”

As her tiny alter-ego watched adoringly, Cyrus took questions from the crowd so “fans could understand how I made the album, why I made the album and why it’s so important to me.”

Her main impulse, she explained, was to no longer run away from her “life story.” She also pointed to her father, country artist Billy Ray Cyrus, as a primary influence in her new music, which has a strong country-pop vein.

“My dad,” she said, “really inspired this record a lot, I think, going back into those roots of everything he instilled in me.”

Sure enough, to emphasize her point, she brought out Billy Ray for the evening’s Act II, a segment she entitled “My Dad Always Says.” The elder Cyrus’ task: to offer counsel to the audience “because,” according to Miley, “he’s always given me the best advice ever.”

Billy Ray obliged by sharing that he always tells his daughter, “Watch what I do, and don’t do that, and you’ll usually get through life pretty good. … Does that make sense?”

“Yeah,” Miley countered. “Don’t grow a mullet, basically.”

“Hell, grow the damn mullet,” Billy Ray parried in defense of his trademark 1990s-era hairstyle. “Hell, yeah, man.”

Act III was a 45-minute set of nine songs, including four from the new album. Cyrus also brought her father back on stage for a rowdy duet of his signature hit, “Achy Breaky Heart,” and she covered Nancy Sinatra’s sassy “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’,” which her dad has included in his own act.

Every song was a crowd-pleaser for the Miley-philes gathered – some of whom had flown in from as far away as Miami and Detroit for the event – but a selection of early hits drew the most deafening cheers. These included “See You Again,” the 2007 debut single from the Hannah Montana days, a song Cyrus tearfully introduced as she recalled her family’s move to California so she “could live my dreams.”

The singer made sure to point out that her childhood best friend, Lesley Patterson, whom she mentioned in the lyrics, was in the audience – which “also makes me cry,” said Cyrus.

Throughout the evening, Cyrus also scattered tidbits about her new music and stories behind the songs. “Miss You So Much,” she said, was “the hardest song to finish” since it dealt with the shocking overdose death of a friend’s boyfriend.

“Rainbowland,” Cyrus’ collaboration with her “fairy godmother,” Dolly Parton, was “the craziest writing experience” of her life, she said, because Parton relied on a fax machine to communicate. “She did write it on a typewriter,” Cyrus revealed.

The inspiration for “Week Without You” was not fiancé Liam Hemsworth – which has been speculated – but, in fact, Cyrus’ “first true love”: Elvis Presley. She wrote it, she explained, to “kind of sound like a song out of his Blue Hawaii” – her favorite Presley movie because his love interest shares her name.

Cyrus wouldn’t identify the muse behind “She’s Not Him,” though most assume it’s based on her brief liaison with model Stella Maxwell. Instead, Cyrus said, she wrote the song “to actually normalize bisexuality” because “I don’t think there’s any songs, any films, any music – anything – that makes bisexuality feel normal for us.”

Hemsworth’s name was also something she avoided mentioning during the entire event, though she did hint that her lyrics have allowed her to let “people into, like, my private journal … of how I really, really feel and … the love that I feel in my life for the things that I feel in my life.”

That includes “Malibu,” of course, which she described as her love song to her beach home, even though the lyrics are obviously directed toward a romantic partner. Cyrus also noted the irony of the song’s title just when she’s decided to “move back to Nashville.” (She recently purchased a 33-acre farm in nearby Franklin.)

Her passion for her hometown, she said, is also the reason she’s staying off the road for the time being. “I would love to go on tour, but right now I am back in Nashville,” she explained to clearly disappointed fans. “I’ve just really been enjoying being home and being with my animals.”

“I want to be in Nashville,” she added, though she said she wouldn’t rule out a “local tour” – a comment that filled the room with raucous cheers.

Bride Serenades New Wife With An Elvis Song During Their First Dance

These newlyweds are starting their marriage off on the right note.

On April 28, bride Heather Ni Chearnaigh surprised her new wife Lauren O’Sullivan during their first dance with a beautiful rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love.”

Halfway through the song, the rest of their guests joined in for a sing-along at the Cork, Ireland wedding.

“I have always expressed myself through music and what better way to express my love for my wife than through a song with such meaningful lyrics!” Heather, a piano teacher and wedding singer, told HuffPost in an email.

The performance was a complete surprise to the Lauren and their guests. Before the wedding, Heather had been practicing with Lauren’s Uncle Mick, who plays guitar in the video, and also arranged for printed lyrics to be handed out to their other family and friends. 

“As a wedding singer, I am used to singing in front of crowds and nerves would never be an issue, but singing to my wife, the most important person in my life, and my biggest critic, now that was nerve-wracking,” Heather told HuffPost. “Tears streamed from Lauren’s face as I started to sing. Immediately after the first dance Lauren hugged me and said, ‘You get more amazing every day.’” 

The couple first met online four and a half years ago and have been inseparable ever since. Below, more photos from the couple’s special day.

How to Celebrate Elvis Week

On August 16, 1977, Elvis Presley died at Graceland, his sanctuary and estate in Memphis, Tennessee. He was just 42 years old. The news sent a wave of shock and sadness as the world mourned the man who transformed how we listen to music and so much more. “Elvis Presley’s death deprives our country of a part of itself. He was unique and irreplaceable… His music and his personality, fusing the styles of white country and black rhythm and blues, permanently changed the face of American popular culture,” wrote President Jimmy Carter at the time.

All this was quite the achievement for a boy who grew up poor, had failed one of his high school music classes, and was the first member in his immediate family to graduate from high school. But Elvis’ unique sound and cool soulfulness inspired legions of great artists from John Lennon to Elton John. As Keith Richards later shared, “Before Elvis, everything was in black and white. Then came Elvis. Zoom, glorious Technicolor.” Bruce Springsteen said, “It was like he came along and whispered some dream in everybody’s ear and somehow we all dreamed it.” Even Leonard Bernstein respected Elvis, remarking, “Elvis is the greatest cultural force in the 20th century.”

38 years after the King’s passing, Graceland continues to get more than 600,000 visitors each year. Graceland is one of the most popular home tours in the United States. In fact, each August, to commemorate his death, thousands of Elvis fans descend upon Graceland to celebrate the superstar’s life, music, movies and legacy. At the end of what’s known as “Elvis Week,” the remembrances and tributes conclude with a solemn candlelight vigil on the anniversary of his August 16th passing.

Many visit Graceland and Memphis to get a better understanding of the man and his music. “While most celebrities move away from their home, Elvis always stayed in Memphis,” explains Andrea Shaw, who created the Memphis Map for Elvis Fans. The illustrated map chronicles more than 100 locales and landmarks where Presley lived, worked, and played in Memphis, offering a chance for visitors to follow in his footsteps and visualize his life. Through the map, visitors can see the site of the factory where Elvis worked on an assembly line. There’s the record pressing plant where he saw his first hit record being being pressed. Learn about the Peabody Hotel, where Elvis attended senior prom, or visit the site of Teen Canteen, where Elvis kissed his girlfriends. Or check out Lansky Brothers, the famous men’s clothing store, which kept him in those great outfits.

Even for those who can’t get to Memphis, there are still ways to connect with the man and get a better understanding of his magic. Click to this Parade.com story for some ideas.

Elvis Presley – Elvis At Stax – Vinyl


2 LPDouble vinyl LP pressing. 2013 release, a collection celebrating the 40th anniversary of these legendary recordings. 1973 was a crucial year in the career of Elvis Presley. Riding high on the success of Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite, which was seen by over one billion, Elvis did something remarkable. He chose to take control of his own business. He sold his future royalties to RCA and he started a new publishing company. No one would tell him what to do ever again. Elvis decided that his next recording project would be on his home turf – at the red-hot Stax, the launching pad of such greats as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave and Isaac Hayes. He assembled the very best musicians in town and he searched for fresh new material that would reflect his new path. The Sax material, an amazing chapter of Elvis??? career, has never been positioned as a whole body of work. Until now. 17 tracks.
