Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana” honors military families with a touching episode that includes cameo appearances by real families of the armed services and two new Hannah Montana songs, the heartfelt ballad “Been Here All Along” and the upbeat “I’m Still Good,” a performance interspersed with greetings from military families to their deployed loved ones. The “Hannah Montana Forever Family Salute” premieres SUNDAY, AUGUST 22 (8:00-8:30 p.m., ET/PT). Forty special messages from military families will air throughout the evening (8:00-9:30 p.m., ET/PT) and will be available with the episode at DisneyChannel.com/Salute.
The USO consulted on the storyline for the episode, “Been Here All Along,” in which Miley cancels a special father/daughter afternoon so she can go on a first date with Jesse instead. While out with Miley, Jesse takes a phone call from his deployed father and their heartfelt conversation leads Miley to realize just how fortunate she is to have her dad close to home whenever she needs him. So she sets out to make amends with Robby Ray, and to do something special for military families.
