Lil Nas X made headlines after his so-called “Country-Trap” single “Old Town Road” was struck from Billboard’s Country charts. To put a little sauce on the young man’s record, Billy Ray Cyrus hopped on the remix and the results seem to be favorable.
The Blast reports:
Lil Nas X called in Billy Ray Cyrus for reinforcement after his song “Old Town Road” was removed from the Billboard charts because it apparently wasn’t country enough.
The rapper and the country music star hit the studio on Thursday to create the remix, and it’s a banger!
Lil Nas X shared behind-the-scenes footage showing Cyrus singing and playing his guitar while putting his signature country twang on the tune.
When “Old Town Road” got the snub from the Country charts, it made waves through the industry and caught the attention of Cyrus, who tweeted his support of the young artist. Making good on his word to show up for Lil Nas X, the remix for the track can be heard below some social media activity from the guys.
Classy act from Billy Ray Cyrus and not for nothing, he kind of bodied it.
