Miley Cyrus Says Her Dad Was 'Underappreciated' Vocally in Sweet Throwback Video

Miley Cyrus' 'Used to Be Young' video series kicked off with an ode to her famous father.

In the second installment of her Used to Be Young series of social media posts, Miley Cyrus reflected on her relationship with her famous father, '90s country tastemaker Billy Ray Cyrus. Specifically, she considered how being born in 1992— the year of "Achy Breaky Heart"— made her journey to musical acclaim much different than her dad's.

"My dad grew up the opposite of me," Miley said. "So I think that's where me and my dad's relationship to fame and success is wildly different. Him feeling loved by a big audience impacted him emotionally more than it ever could me. When he feels special or important it's like healing a childhood wound, and I've always been made to feel like a star. It makes me emotional."

She added that despite her dad's fame, he doesn't get his due as a dynamic singer.

"I do have a lot of great memories singing music with my dad, and learning and absorbing, and I think I can see my wheels turning in watching his voice and the way that he's using the instrument,"  she added. "I will say that I feel vocally my dad was underappreciated."

Miley's video series ties into the promotion of her autobiographical single "Used to Be Young." A trio of posts on Saturday (Aug. 26) began with an introduction to the concept.

"Sometimes it feels like my life started when Hannah Montana was born," she explained. "But before Hannah there was Miley. My fantasy was to light up the world with laughter, music and iconic moments that last beyond my lifetime. Decades later I continue to fulfill my purpose because of the love provided by my fans. This series Used To Be Young is inspired by my new single. Looking back on my life and sharing untold stories from 1992 until now. Let's start at the beginning."

As of Monday morning (Aug. 28), the series includes 10 clips chronicling Miley's childhood.
