She's continuing to cause a stir with her every move, but Miley Cyrus' dad, Billy Ray, is still there to support his little girl regardless of what others think.

As previously reported by GossipCenter, the 20-year-old songstress released a racy video earlier this week for her new tune "Wrecking Ball," in which she gets completely naked.

Sticking up for his daughter, the "Achy Breaky Heart" singer told Entertainment Tonight, "I’m a song man. A musician singer songwriter who loves all styles of music. But again … I come from the old school where it starts with an artist and a song … colliding if you will … in a moment where the song, the singer, the producer, the band and the listener become one.”

“It wouldn’t have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt … a Tux … or a nun’s habit. The song’s a smash … and her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God given talent,”he added.
