A while back when Miley had a photo shoot with Vanity Fair, there was a lot of talk about those photos. Some of her nude, but covering herself with a sheet (or something); and some of them with her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, that people said were more than a little bit inappropriate.
Miley is now about to publish a new memoir. I assume that’s like an autobiography for someone who hasn’t lived 1/4 of their life yet – but that’s what she’s doing. In the book, Miley said, “The media has said some stuff about my dad and me being too close and too cuddly for a father and daughter. For me and my dad it’s not weird at all.” Miley’s memoir is scheduled to publish next month, by Disney Hyperlon Books.
Back on Nov. 21, 2008, I put up a post titled, “Julianne done dancing; flu-bug finds Trace; Miley going country(?)” Well, Julianne is back to the dance floor; Trace has recovered from the flu; and it saddens me to say that Miley has indeed gone country. At least the song is country, I can’t really say the same for the singer.
The song is really good. It’s called “The Climb.” I wish I could say the singer was even close to being as good as the song. I really don’t think the kid can sing. But I’ll let you decide. I just know I can think of a dozen singers I would have rather heard do that song (Lee Ann Womack, Sara Evans, even Rascal Flatts, etc.)
The song is scheduled to be digitally released to radio tomorrow. (I’m not sure what I think of that promotional poster — “One of country’s biggest stars…..” Really? I hadn’t noticed. Was Hannah Montana a country artist? I guess I missed all that because I never paid much attention to Hannah.)
I’m sure by now most of radio’s program directors across the country have heard the song, and decided whether or not they will air it. Like I said, I think the song is really good. But whether it gets air time or not certainly isn’t up to me. And, I honestly would have liked to heard someone else singing it.
Thanks to YouTube for being on top of everything – Here’s Miley and her new song, “The Climb.”
We’re freezing in Northeast Tennessee this morning. You’d think I’d be used to that –we’ve had a pretty cold, snowy winter.But cold is something I will never get used to. I’m still anxiously awaiting the return of tulips and robins. I’ll talk to you guys soon. Have a peaceful, relaxing Sunday.
