Miley Cyrus, the 14-year-old who plays Hannah Montana on the Emmy award nominated show of the same name, stars as the daughter of a country singer who moonlights as a kid rocker. That's not too far from the real story as Miley is the daughter of singer Billy Ray Cyrus. And true to life, she's most definitely a rock star. Her 54-date national tour, which sold out four minutes after it went on sale, kicks off in St. Louis.

Blake Farmer reports from member station WPLN.
