(USA TODAY) -- Country goddess Dolly Parton is Miley Cyrus' godmother.

And she told the London Evening Standard that she's fully backing up the twerking star.

"I've loved her through the years and watched her grow up, and I've seen how smart she is and how talented she is," said Parton. "I don't think people really realize yet what a great singer and writer she really is."

The Wrecking Ball singer, says Parton, is "just trying to find her own place."

Cyrus has been relatively quiet since hosting SNL and then posting a photo of herself in a very revealing Halloween costume.
