Small Talk: Billy Ray Cyrus, Toby Keith + More
The Boot rounds up this week's most memorable quotes from country stars.
"I told her in no uncertain terms that her career would be over if something stupid were to happen and she would no longer be a role model for young girls ... I don't want to forbid her from dating, because that would just make her sneak around. I'd rather have everything up front and out in the open. Miley is a really good kid, but she has to watch her step as far as boys are concerned." --a 'family friend' quoting Billy Ray Cyrus on daughter Miley (Source: The Sun)
"They've run me out of the (Democratic Party). They don't represent anything I stand for anymore. But there are just as many sickos on the right. That's why I'm not registering Republican. But I don't see things right and left, I see them right and wrong." --former Democrat Toby Keith (Source: PEOPLE)
"Ever since I've been in this business, I've been asked the question, 'Boxers or briefs?' Like seriously over 483 times at least. But i don't get it? Did country music adopt that question years ago for some reason?" --Billy Currington (Source: his MySpace blog)
"Country music used to be so stereotyped; you know, you play the record backward and you get your dog back, your ex-wife back, your truck back. Nowadays, it's opened up so much. I mean, you've got Kid Rock on country radio. You've got people like Miss Taylor Swift crossing over to pop radio. To me, I think it's totally awesome because if Lynyrd Skynyrd or the Eagles was to come out nowadays, they'd be country." --Eddie Montgomery (Source: BAM's Blog)
