Billy Ray Cyrus shared the advice he would give Justin Bieber, following the Canadian pop star’s DUI arrest last week.

“A lot of people do ask me for parenting advice,” Billy told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson, at the Grammys when she asked what advice he would give the troubled teen star.

“So I would say, first of all, hey, I’m sure he’s got lots of people talking to him right now. I would just invite him to come down and chill out with me, maybe in Tennessee. Let’s go up to the teepee, build a fire, step away and just, you know, maybe take a break for a little bit, just think about what’s important,” Billy continued of his get back to nature approach. “Get back to life. … Build a fire, count the deer and the hawks and relax a little bit.”

Billy, father to Miley, a friend of The Biebs, went on to note Justin’s talents.

“He’s got a long life ahead of him and I’d like to see him just kind of maybe, enjoy a little bit of what he’s got and focus back on the music,” Billy said. “He’s a great artist.”
