Back before the days of Hannah Montana, Billy Ray Cyrus was already a star. When taking the role of Robby Ray Stewart, he took a backseat and let his daughter, Miley be the star.
In our opinion, and maybe we're biased because we aren't the same age as most Hannah Montana fans, but the show was strongest when Billy Ray and Miley were sharing scenes.
What was better than them sharing scenes, was when they sang together. On the show, Billy Ray's character wrote all his daughter's songs, including this gem. The song served as a story-arc of one of the episodes and ended with Billy Ray's character accepting his little girl was growing up.
In real life, he wrote "Ready, Set, Don't Go" when Miley moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting before she was even cast on Hannah Montana, but he didn't record and release it until 2007. He first released it as the first single off his album Home At Last.
The album also included a duet version of "Ready, Set, Don't Go" with Miley, which peaked at No. 4 on the country charts. They debuted the song on Dancing With The Stars, where Billy Ray previously competed. In fact, his former partner was performing while he was singing!
The father-daughter duet is a crowd favorite, and for good reason. Some fans have requested they perform together more, and thanks to Billy Ray's upcoming album, Thin Line, their wish has been granted.
They team up on a song called "Angels Protect Us From This Home", which is the final track on his album, out September 9.
