At the time Billy Ray Cyrus was collecting his first royalty check for Boot 
Scootin Boogie, I was living in Ashland KY, about 10 miles from his home town.

While I don't know this for a fact, I am under the impression that the Hannah 
Montana thing was Miley Cyrus's dads way of letting his girl do her thing as a 
walk on during his shows, while only partially concealing that she was his 
(Billy Ray Cyrus) child.  I have heard her sing a couple of times & she does 
well, and if I was 17 instead of 74, I'd have to figure she was quite a 
looker.  Billy Ray, I assume, has his guardian shotgun loaded and at the ready 
too.  If she was my girl, I'd sure be standing guard.

I don't know for sure that Disney owns that trademark.  This will probably 
tell the story though.  The fact that it hasn't already been stepped on is 
encouraging cuz its been out at least a month now.
