Miley Cyrus Thinks Her Dad Is 'The Most Magical Hillbilly Wizard Of All Time'

'You are crazy to be down,' Billy Ray Cyrus texted his superstar daughter.

Miley Cyrus has been through a lot over the past few years.

From shocking audiences at the 2013 Video Music Awards with her outrageous and teddy bear-fueled performance of "We Can't Stop" to breaking up with her longtime boo and fiance Liam Hemsworth, she's had her hands full.

For most people, that would be too much to handle, but Miley seems surprisingly poised in a way that many of her peers lack.

Now we now part of the reason why: support from her dad. Apparently feeling down (even global pop superstars get the blues), Miley posted a text message reply from her dad (described as "the most magical hillbilly wizard of all time") on her Instagram.

It probably doesn't hurt that, along the way, she's also had plenty of other awesome people supporting her decisions, from perennial cultural touchstone and Flaming Lips rocker Wayne Coyne —she compares to her dad in the Instagram caption, to Kanye West himself.

Her dad encouraged her not to worry about stuff beyond her control, saying "that would make you a bitter ole man and that's not cool," he said. Indeed! After checking out her debut art show that premiered during NYFW, it's safe to say that some of that hillbilly wizardry has rubbed off on Miley too. Like father like daughter!
