    And the Bob Dylan song was on.

    Don’t think twice -- Miley Cyrus is doin’ Dylan.

    The 18-year-old “Can’t Be Tamed” singer will cover legendary songsmith Bob Dylan for a charity tribute album, E! News reported on Wednesday.

    Other pop stars set to contribute tracks for “Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International" include: Adele, Sting and Ke$ha, according to E!

    Patti Smith and Dave Matthews Band have also signed on for the project, Britain’s Daily Express newspaper reported.

    The paper noted Ke$ha has told Rolling Stone Dylan was a "huge influence" on her, especially because he “writes his own music and means what he says.”

    Cyrus may not have name-checked Dylan like she did Jay-Z and Britney Spears in her hit anthem “Party in the U.S.A.” But the former “Hannah Montana” star has a history of covering rock classics, according to E! She’s done Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and Poison’s “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”
