So. Many. Mullets. Throw way back into the 90s with us as Billy Ray and the Cyrus Bunch belt ‘Jingle Bells’ as only they can.
In his latest, hysterical throwback today, Billy Ray shares a clip of the whole Cyrus clan. Together, the famous family belts ‘Jingle Bells’ at the top of their lungs. It’s not on key, it’s not orchestrated, and there’s absolutely no polish to it. And we love it.
“Hope this helps you roll into the holiday season. Have a #MerryMulletMonday!” Cyrus captions the retro clip. Why the hashtag #MerryMulletMonday, you ask? Because the 90’s signature country-boy hairdo is on full, multi-generational display within. See for yourself:
Glorious, aren’t they? Longtime fans of Billy Ray know the musician rocked a mullet for pretty much the entire decade. His own commitment to the hairstyle went a long way to cementing it into popular culture, alongside contemporaries like Blake Shelton and Garth Brooks – who also sported some mighty fine mullets.
Within, Cyrus’ son Braison can be seen sporting a mullet alongside his famous father. View the vintage clip ’til the end and you’ll see a bubbly, tiny little Miley Cyrus beside him, as well. Just another gem in Cyrus’ long line of Twitter blessings.
The Billy Ray, Miley Cyrus, Dolly Parton Connection
Out of everyone in this throwback video, Miley has come the farthest, too. While she’s taken the world by storm since, the pop star was just a tiny girl with Dolly Parton as a Godmother at the time of the above ‘Jingle Bells’ rendition.
Now, Miley’s Christmases are full of recording albums with Dolly Parton as a music industry equal. The two often champion one another and appear together on Dolly’s latest album, A Holly Dolly Christmas.
“Dolly reached out about doing a Christmas record with her and only for Dolly Parton do you sing a Christmas carol in July,” Cyrus recalls in our previous coverage. “But she makes physical records and so she had to get it turned in. I was singing about Christmas in the middle of L.A. summer, and only for Dolly,” she laughs.
Moreover, Cyrus, 28, glows when she speaks of Dolly Parton, as do we all. Her “very precious fairy godmother,” she calls Parton, who she says represents such a stature “not only to me but to admirers from all around the world.”
Continuing her statement, Cyrus adds that “it’s safe to say if they don’t like her, it’s only because they love her. As the most honored and revered female country singer-songwriter of all time, Dolly Parton has influenced music beyond her own genre.” Truer words have never been spoken.
