Lil Nas X Enlists Billy Ray Cyrus on ‘Old Town Road’ Remix

Rapper Lil X is getting support for his song from country singer Billy Ray Cyrus

As you might expect, fans had their suspicions about what exactly it was about the song that was a problem...

On Friday, rapper Lil Nas X released a remix of his viral trap country song "Old Town Road" featuring pensive cowboy Billy Ray Cyrus.

"Old Town Road" is a song that's gone through a heck of a journey in its short life. However, Billboard told the magazine that, upon further review, the artist's song did not merit inclusion on its country chart-causing a bit of controversy.

Now, it's likely the song will end up back on the country charts, which marks a victory for a music community run by the internet and unbothered by genre classification. After Lil Nas X delivers his memorable bars, Cyrus closes out the song echoing lyrics about luxurious cars and jewelry. "Welcome to the club!", Cyrus wrote in his Instagram caption. "Don't think outside the box".

Teenager says he is missing boy who was kidnapped 7 years ago
The grandmother of an IL boy missing since 2011 says she's trying not to get her hopes up after hearing that he might be alive. What happened to Timmothy Pitzen? They were holding him at a Red Roof Inn, but he didn't know which one, CNN reported.

A Billboard spokesperson later stated that the "decision to take the song off of the country chart had absolutely nothing to do with the race of the artist". When I got thrown off the charts, Waylon Jennings said to me "Take this as a compliment" means you're doing something great!

The song was a ideal marriage of two genres. Due to its popularity and cross-genre sound (blending hip-hop vocals with banjo and bass) it was added to a number of Billboard Top 100 charts, including the Hot Country Songs, only to later be removed for not being country enough.

Cyrus also gave a shout out to Lil Nas X on social media.
