In 2018, Lil Nas X released his song “Old Town Road”. The song was on on the Billboard Hot Country Song chart but wasn’t going to be there for long. Billboard decided “Old Town Road” wasn’t country enough, and took it down.
While the song “incorporates references to country and cowboy imagery, it does not embrace enough elements of today’s country music to chart in its current version,” Billboard said in a statement to Rolling Stone.
This was the 19 year old rappers biggest hit and they ruined his hard work. Lil Nas X realized that this wasn’t going to stop him. Yesterday evening, Billy Ray Cyrus dropped a big hint to the world.
He is officially on the Old Town Road remix. This hit is guaranteed to be on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart! The song was released April 2, 2019.
