The sweet words accompanied the video of Cyrus performing on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge Month. She looked simple and stunning in a sparkly black outfit and short blonde locks.

The 27-year-old revealed that she had been mourning her grandma, who she affectionately called "Mammie," by listening to the Eagles on repeat. The Eagles were her Mammie's favorite band.

The song, "Take It To The Limit," became an inspiration to Cyrus, who added that it taught her about giving respect to everyone that shared and passed on the music that shaped the people after them.

Cyrus wrote that she would keep her grandmother's spirit alive by doing kind deeds for others.

Performing the iconic 1975 song was not the only way the "Wrecking Ball" crooner paid homage to her late grandmother Finley.
