The daughter-dad pair teamed up for a cover of Tom Petty’s “Wildflowers.” The fiddle and family harmonies gave the folk-rock tune more of a country feel. Dressed in a light pink feminine strapless dress, Miley sang with passion and sensitivity, leaving a lump in the throats of Petty’s fans, who lost the legendary rocker October 2 after he suffered a heart attack.
