Just when we thought we were out, Billy Ray Cyrus pulled us back in.

The country star and father of Miley has spoken out for the first time about his daughter's topless Vanity Fair photo shoot, giving his take on the controversial shots on this morning's Today show.

"I didn't know they were gonna strip her down and wrap her in a blanket," he said while promoting the new season of Nashville Star.

"My dad always told me, the more you stomp in poop, the more it stinks. So I was just, 'OK, this happened. We got to deal with it,'" he said, before relaying words of wisdom once given to him. "The turkey with the longest neck's always going to be the one everyone's shooting at."

Wait, did he just call Miley a turkey?
