Lil Nas X & Billy Ray Cyrus Remix ‘Old Town Road’ After Billboard Snub

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.

The 19-year-old also shared photos with the “Achy Breaky Heart” legend, writing, “BILLY F*CKIN RAY!!!”

He wasn’t the only one super pumped for the collaboration. Miley Cyrus, shared the pic with the caption, “Legends supporting legends!”

This comes just one week after Billboard yanked Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” song, saying it “does not currently merit inclusion on Billboard’s country charts.”
