An Unlikely Duo: Miley Cyrus And Dolly Parton
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.
Millennial superstar Miley Cyrus and the original country superstar icon Dolly Parton, have a relationship that has crossed generational and musical genre barriers, leading many people to wonder if Miley Cyrus is related to Dolly Parton.
To help you better understand what is so special about Miley and Dolly’s relationship, here are 7 facts you need to know.
1. Dolly Parton is Miley’s Godmother
Despite rumors that the two are biologically related, their relationship is a more symbolic one. Dolly has taken on the honorable role of being Miley’s Godmother and it is clear she has taken those duties very seriously!
2. They have shared values
Both Miley and Dolly are known to be some of the hardest workers in the industry, who despite having already accomplished so much, still have big ambitious goals they want to achieve.

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.
The most heart-warming thing about the bond between Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton is that their relationship is a true example of artists supporting one another; even though Dolly has lived out the majority of her time in the spotlight, she is, and always will be, Miley’s number one fan.
