Miley Cyrus pens heartfelt note on Hannah Montana's 10th anniversary

Hannah Montana Turns 10!

Somehow it's been ten years since the premiere of "Hannah Montana," and nobody is as emotional about it as the show's former star, Miley Cyrus.

The 23-year-old singer commemorated the occasion with a lengthy post on Instagram that celebrated "the insanity of it all" before getting into her nostalgia and noting how much she's changed over the past decade.

"Sending love to all my cast members on this anniversary," she wrote. "To the world it's a celebration of 10 years but for us the journey began way before the world had any clue who the f**k any of us are."

That journey, which included four seasons of the record-breaking Disney Channel show, a concert tour with the Jonas Brothers, a feature film and a handful of chart-topping soundtracks, was one that took over the world from March 24, 2006 until its series finale on January 16, 2011.

Over the past few years, as her image has dramatically changed, Cyrus has distanced herself from the seemingly squeaky clean image she exhibited throughout those years. So, her newfound appreciation for the franchise that catapulted her to fame is, well, refreshing.

"Even though I feel disconnected to who I was at that time," she continued. "I will always feel eternally grateful for the opportunity and platform I was given .... None of it would have been possible with out every single person who ever contributed to the series .... From regulars , to special guests (and there were many magical ones @dollyparton ) to creators, crew , directors."

Throughout its reign, the "Hannah Montana" franchise was responsible for selling over 13 million albums worldwide and achieved 20 Billboard-charting singles.

Cyrus finished her emotional post with a callout to her fans that have made all of her success possible.

"I am where I am because of loyal fans that I am thankful for and of course love dearly all the new angels who support me now..... Even though HM is chopped up into little tiny pieces and buried in my backyard she will always hold a very special place in my heart!"
