One of his most notable roles was in "O Brother, Where Are Thou" from December 2000. He played the character Ulysses Everett McGill who becomes part of a group called The Soggy Bottom Boys.

The trio gains popularity when they lip-sync "Man of Constant Sorrow." That's the song Cyrus performed on Thursday at the Los Angeles Dolby Theatre.

She was introduced by Bill Murray. According to Country Music Nation, Clooney and Cyrus became friends after her appearance on a "Very Murray Christmas" in 2015.

At the gala, Murray referred to Cyrus as "America's sweetheart," to which Cyrus responded:

"He's the only one who thinks I'm sweet."

She then belted out her rendition of the timeless song. She was accompanied by a group of fiddlers and banjo players.

Cyrus was sure to look the part as she sang the western song. She was donned in a loose white blouse intentionally ruffled. Her black long pants opened slightly at the legs. She topped it off with a pageboy cap.

Cyrus, daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, is reportedly working on something new.
