Two generations of blonde bombshell superstars Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton, have formed an unlikely alliance and unbreakable bond.

When Miley Cyrus began her musical career as a teen pop sensation with music that was light, fun and upbeat she knew she could not rely on her “cute” persona forever.

This is where Dolly Parton really came in to play, mentoring Miley through her transition to becoming a long-term successful musician. Without Dolly guiding her along the way, it is safe to say that Miley might not have become the legendary Rock, Country and Hip-Hop singer she is today.

3. They are both blonde bombshells

Miley Cyrus is  a  slender 5’5 who currently rocks a blonde bob—despite originally being a brunette. Her godmother, Dolly, is much more petite at only 5’0, long blonde hair and a curvier figure that has made her a bit of a sex symbol.

4. They have appeared together on the big screen

Their relationship is one that has transferred over to television, in which they have appeared on numerous television shows together—most notably on Hannah Montana and on The Voice.

5. They both come from humble beginnings

Part of the charm of Dolly’s international stardom is that she is a rags to riches success story. She grew up with 11 sibling in the Smokey Mountain Ranges before she hit her big break as a country superstar. Similarly, Miley grew up with a more modest Southern lifestyle before moving to L.A. But even as the most popular tween in the world, she still received a humble allowance each week from her parents.

6. They both are showstoppers when singing Jolene

One of Dolly’s most well-known singles is Jolene. But what makes it even more special is that Miley is also well-known for singing her godmother’s hit song, making it part of each concert’s line-up.  It is a beautiful tribute to her godmother and a wonderful way to pay tribute to all that Dolly has done for her.

7. Dolly’s mentorship runs in the Cyrus family

It is not just Miley that Dolly has taken an interest in mentoring. In fact, Dolly first took her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, under her wing after he was a break-out country star from his hit single Achy Breaky Heart. At the time that Billy was emerging as a superstar, Dolly had already established herself as a Grammy winning country artist.

It was her mentorship with Billy that led to their eventual friendship. So, it is no surprise history repeated itself when Miley went on the same track as her father towards becoming a superstar of her own.
