Miley has grown up in the public eye, and her new CD reveals her natural progression and sophistication. Miley teamed with Grammy Award-winning producer John Shanks (Sheryl Crow, Celine Dion, Kelly Clarkson, Bon Jovi) and long-time Miley Cyrus collaborators Tim James & Antonina Armato ("Seven Things" and "See You Again"). Tim & Antonina produced and co-wrote "Can't Be Tamed" with Miley, and the video was directed by MTV Award-winning Robert Hales (Justin Timberlake, Gnarls Barkley, Kings of Leon.) "Can't Be Tamed" is a self-empowering song in which Miley asserts that she has to stay true to herself in relationships, and it is sure to become an anthem among her legions of fans around the world. Miley has several high profile appearances this summer including Rock in Rio dates in Lisbon May 29 and Madrid June 6, Good Morning America's Summer Concert Series in Central Park, Live! with Regis & Kelly June 18, and the Much Music Video Awards June 20 (Miley is co-hosting and performing on Much Music Video Awards).
Cyrus stars in the hit Disney Channel series "Hannah Montana," which is currently in production in its fourth season. She also starred in the feature film, "Hannah Montana: The Movie," which topped the box office on its opening weekend. She currently stars in the drama, "The Last Song," scripted by Nicolas Sparks.
She is also the best-selling author of Miles to Go, her first book that shares her inspiring story, spanning from her Southern roots in Tennessee to the excitement of her record-setting triumphs in TV, music and film. In addition, Miley Cyrus and designer Max Azria of apparel house BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP, Inc. have teamed up to create Miley Cyrus & Max Azria, a new apparel line exclusive to Walmart.
Miley recently partnered with Youth Service America and founded Get Ur Good On (www.GETURGOODON.org), an online network of youth supporting each other in their mission to do "good" in their communities. She is also involved with numerous charities including City of Hope, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and American Red Cross, among others.
