Giddyup, aspiring artists! "Extra" is going one-on-one with "Nashville Star" host Billy Ray Cyrus -- who is opening up about the upcoming reality show and his daughter Miley!
When asked how his own experience as a country singer would add to the season of "Nashville Star," Cyrus said, "I've walked this town carrying my guitar and satchel full of dreams and song. I've done that knock on the door of rejection many, many times and often look back at how long it took me to get that first record deal."
The "Achy Breaky Heart" crooner also dished on the advice he gives to his "Hannah Montana" daughter, regarding dealing with the press. "Whatever you do in life, there's going to be peaks and valleys," said Billy Ray, "I think one of the things my dad taught me, and hopefully I instilled in Miley, is that when you get knocked down, you got to get back up... she has a lot to be proud of."
"Nashville Star," hosted by Billy Ray Cyrus, premieres June 9th on NBC.
