Billy Ray Cyrus has a crush on Dolly Parton, who admitted it once.
Dolly Parton’s decades-long marriage has never stopped her from sharing her crushes with the world.
Most questions about rumored affairs are deflected deftly by the singer, who is forthright about her celebrity crushes.
She admitted to having a crush on Billy Ray Cyrus to her friend Billy Ray Cyrus.
