Billy Ray Cyrus.

Or as my kids call him, “Hannah Montana’s Dad.”

That’s what they said when they walked into the room and saw him on tv, hosting the new season of Nashville Star.

I like Billy. I really like his hair. Pretty hip for a dad. And a long way from his infamous mullet.

The morning show chatted with “Hannah Montana’s dad” a while back, and he told us he missed the mullet.

I had to ask him…WHY?

He explained his mullet days were back when life was good. Simple. Easy. Not too many worries in life. Things are so heavy now.

I think he has a point. I might just look at mullets with a whole new appreciation from now on.

Greg, don’t get any ideas.
