Lil Nas X was told that his crossover hit “Old Town Road” wasn’t country enough for the Billboard Hot Country Songs. So he went and teamed up with a bona fide country legend — Billy Ray Cyrus.
The Atlanta rapper’s new “Old Town Road” remix featuring Billy Ray is due to hit streaming services today (Thursday).
On Wednesday, Uncle Billy tweeted support for the Atlanta rapper. He wrote, “Been watching everything going on with ‘Old Town Road.’ When I got thrown off the charts, Waylon Jennings said to me, ‘Take this as a compliment,’ means you’re doing something great! Only outlaws are outlawed. Welcome to the club!”
