Miley Cyrus Does Country Cover Of “Hey Ya” (And It’s Shockingly Good)
You’re right to assume that Miley Cyrus doing a country cover of Outkast’s “Hey Ya” is a terrible idea. You’re right to make that assumption because it should be terrible. And yet, against all the laws of nature and pop music, it’s not. Miley performed the song at a recent stop on her Bangerz tour and I would not be surprised if she ends up recording it (if she gets permission from Andre 3000 and Big Boi, that is). I like this cover because it mixes what I think are two very genuine versions of Miley — the girl who grew up on country music, and the young adult who’s discovered a love of hip-hop.
