The country crooner, 59, "knows a lot of eligible men in the country music biz that he thinks would be perfect for her and help calm her down a bit," a pal dishes to OK!, adding that Billy Ray isn't opposed to hooking Miley, 28, up with an older man. "He’d love for his daughter to date someone mature and responsible instead of having these flings with younger guys that just throw her off track."
According to the pal, Billy Ray "can see that Miley’s lonely and just wants to help."
Miley, who's been single since her split from Cody Simpson, 24, last August, “may just take her dad's advice," adds the pal. "Billy Ray is one of the few people she listens to." Let’s see if Dad can mend that Achy Breaky Heart!
However, when it comes to Miley's priorities in a partner, gender isn't a factor. In a recent interview, the singer got candid about why she prefers women.
"Girls are way hotter. We know this. Everyone, I think, can agree that from ancient times d***s makes wonderful sculptures," she revealed on Barstool Sports’ "Call Her Daddy" podcast. "Other than that, I'm not as interested. I like d***s as art pieces. And sculptural, I love the shape, I think it looks really good on a table."
"Everyone knows that t**s are prettier than balls," she added.
Miley identifies as pansexual, so the fact that she likes women doesn't come as much of a surprise. "Like if I'm going to be with a girl, I'm totally down to be with a boss b**ch who's as successful, or more successful than me; that's cool, too," she explained of the role she takes on in a relationship a woman.
"I kind of hold a more dominant space," the Grammy nominee clarified.
"Relationships and partnerships in a new generation — I don't think they have so much to do with sexuality or gender," she said. "Sex is actually a small part, and gender is a very small, almost irrelevant part of relationships."
The singer has clarified that she loves all people and she's up for a relationship with either gender.
"Right now I'm kind of in the mood for some D, but I'm down for whatever, honestly," she had revealed in a conversation with Howard Stern in 2019.
