Billy Ray Cyrus Got Jokes About Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth Wedding

billy ray cyrus

Billy Ray Cyrus is coy about daughter Miley Cyrus and beau Liam Hemsworth’s plans for the future.

After breaking off an engagement in 2013, the two rekindled their romance earlier this year. Sources later told E! News in January they had gotten re-engaged and Miley, 23, has over the past few months been spotted with Liam, 26, and his family and has also been wearing what appears to be the engagement ring he gave her the first time.

When asked if the two are officially engaged, Billy Ray, 54, told E! News’ Carissa Culiner exclusively,

“Here’s what I do know. They’re so happy. That’s the main thing.”

“Miley and I, we always had this slogan—’If you ain’t happy, it ain’t working.’ Just seeing these—I still call ’em kids—these two kids happy, that’s all that matters.”

Miley and Liam have not commented about their rekindled relationship. If they do end up marrying, Billy Ray is ready to perform any wedding duties they’d like.

“If any of my kids decide that they’re gonna have a wedding of any kind, whatever role they want me to play, I’ll be there, you know what I mean?” he told Culiner. “They want me to be the butler—that’s fine. Whatever they choose. I might make a good preacher.”

Meanwhile, Billy Ray has another elaborate, far less personal, star-studded event to prepare for: The 2016 CMT Awards, which take place June 8.

“I’m going to do something at the awards,” Billy Ray told Culiner. “I’m real excited about it. Country music is in a great spot right now. There’s a lot of great talent out there.”

Billy Ray and Miley had co-hosted the CMT Music Awards in 2008, three years before their Disney Channel series Hannah Montana ended its run after four seasons.

Billy Ray is set to make his big TV return with the CMT comedy series Still the King, which premieres on June 12.

Billy Ray Cyrus Joins List of Artists Standing Up Against Anti-LGBT Bills

Billy Ray Cyrus joins a list of artists, including Bryan Adams and Bruce Springsteen, that are standing up against the discriminatory bills that are threatening the rights and safety of the LGBT community.

“I would feel negligent to not speak up,” said Cyrus. “In light of my good friend Bryan Adams taking a stand and my daughter having been on the ground floor of this movement, this issue is very important to me. As a friend and dad… I’ve witnessed this fight from the very beginning. I think everyone should be treated equal. We’ve come too far; we can’t mess this up.”

The announcement comes after it was released that Adams was canceling an upcoming show in Mississippi to protest the state’s new pro-discrimination law targeting the LGBT community.

Coincidentally, on Friday, Cyrus released a track featuring Bryan Adams and the legendary “The Voice of Rock,” Glenn Hughes, titled “Hey Elvis.” Hughes, who was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Deep Purple on April 8th, provided a fresh influence on the song’s latest version.

As Cyrus put it, “There is a little Elvis in all of us; no matter who you are or where you come from.”

Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam Just Got Bigger!

Volunteer Jam

Just when you think Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam can’t get any bigger, additional megastar performers are announced. Trace Adkins, Ted Nugent, Tracy Lawrence, Craig Morgan, Colt Ford, The Oak Ridge Boys and Michael W. Smith will all be appearing alongside the previously-announced Travis Tritt, Montgomery Gentry, Billy Ray Cyrus, The Kentucky Headhunters, The Outlaws and Lee Roy Parnell. The megastars will bind together to support the needs of American veterans through The Journey Home Project. Tickets to the once-in-a-lifetime event will be available beginning Friday, January 30 at 10 a.m. CST at the Bridgestone Arena box office and all Ticketmaster locations. Due to tremendous growth over its forty years of sell-out success, the legendary Volunteer Jam will take place for the first time at the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville on August 12, 2015 and will be hosted by Sean Hannity and Storme Warren.

In 1974, The Charlie Daniels Band hosted the first-ever Volunteer Jam as a way of celebrating their first hometown sellout concert, never knowing how big the event would become — from being aired as a two-hour TV special produced by Dick Clark Productions, to earning national attention through the Jerry Lewis Telethon, to being broadcast LIVE around the world on Voice of America, the event experienced exponential growth with each passing year.

“I’m very excited to continue the Jam tradition,” said Daniels. I hope to see more Nashville Volunteer Jams in the future. I’m very, very excited to continue the Jam tradition forty years later. Ain’t it good to be alive, and be in Tennessee.”

The 2015 Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam will benefit The Journey Home Project, the non-profit organization that Daniels serves as Chairman of the Board and whose mission is to connect donors to veterans’ organizations that can help meet their health care, education and career needs, as well as The Predators Foundation, which is devoted to funneling the excitement of professional sports towards the needs of the community. For more information on The Journey Home Project, please visit: thejourneyhomeproject.org. For more information on The Predators Foundation, please CLICK HERE.

Charlie Daniels 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam presented by Copperweld is produced by David Corlew & Associates in association with Outback Concerts. 95.5 FM Nash ICON and WSM-AM serve as the official radio partners. Ticket prices start at $17.68 with limited VIP packages available.
