It's not just the tweens who love Miley Cyrus: The Disney channel star has a fan in Dolly Parton. "That little Miley Cyrus ... she's like a little Elvis," the country luminary says in a new interview with AOL Music. "The kids love her because she's Hannah Montana, but what people don't realize about her is she is such a fantastic singer and songwriter. She writes songs like she's 40 years old! She's really deep.
"And I think that she's gonna have a big career after that show is off the air," Parton continues. "I know I'm partial, because she's my goddaughter. But I'm amazed at the talent that child has and the effect she has on people."
