Idol Chatter

billyraycyruspic.jpgActor and “Achy Breaky Heart” singer Billy Ray Cyrus has seen a resurgence in his career, thanks to daughter Miley Cyrus, who stars in the Disney Channel series “Hannah Montana,” where she plays a girl leading a double life as an average teen and a famous pop singer. Billy Ray plays Miley’s dad on the show and the duo also star in this Friday’s “Hannah Montana: The Movie.”
Billy Ray, whose new country album “Back to Tennessee” just released on Tuesday, recently spoke to Beliefnet about his Christian faith and what he wants for Miley. He also spoke passionately about the lack of faith in Hollywood:

In Franklin, Tennessee where we’re from, there’s a lot of faith around, a lot of light. A lot of people have read the Bible. [Faith is] part of your life, part of the community. And you know what? [With] all due respect, in this world, it’s just hard to find a lot of light here in Hollywood. …The harder we worked to represent the light and be positive, the more the forces of evil and darkness would come in to try to put out that light.
