'As long as she's happy and loving making music - and I know she loves acting - that's all that matters,' says the country singer/actor when asked about his wish for his songstress daughter.


Having better his strained relationship with daughter Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus expresses his simple wish for the young songstress. In a new interview with Parade magazine, the "Achy Breaky Heart" hitmaker says, "My wish for her is to be happy. To love what she's doing."

"We've always had a slogan in our family: 'If you ain't happy, it ain't working.' You need to love what you're doing," the 49-year-old country singer/actor elaborates his statement. "As long as she's happy and loving making music - and I know she loves acting - that's all that matters."

"I pray the same for Miley as I pray for my other kids - that they live their life with purpose knowing that it's about giving back and finding out what you can do in this world to hopefully make it a better place," he concludes.

Admitting that "fame can be dangerous", the former "Hannah Montana" actor stresses, "I try to focus on the positive." He adds, "I think it's important to stay focused on where you wanna go, what you're all about, and what you want to do with your work. And there will be a lot of distractions out there. That's why it's all the more important to stay focused on what you believe in."

On his advice for future stars, Billy Ray says, "I'll lean back to a couple buddies of mine, one being Waylon Jennings, the other being Johnny Cash, the other being Carl Perkins, all three of those great men said the same thing to me: 'Cyrus, keep it real. Be who you are and do what you do because you love it.' "

"I've followed that example of keeping it real," he continues. "Nothing else in this business is worth it. Don't be chasing fads or trying to necessarily be the guy that's trying to fit in with everybody else. Be who you are and be an original."
