Billy Ray Cyrus to appear on remix of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road”

But in March, Billboard removed the song for its Hot Country Songs chart.

Following the explosive success of "Old Town Road", viral sensation Lil Nas X teams up with country legend Billy Ray Cyrus on the remix to his genre-bending hit.

The Atlanta rapper Lil Nas X arrives at the flawless timing with his recently released and now remixed single "Old Town Road".

"One of those fans was Cyrus, who tweeted on Tuesday: ".@LilNasX Been watching everything going on with OTR.

I'm not too ashamed to admit to being a country music fan.

In the song, Lil Nas X raps "I got the horses in the back/Horse tack is attached". Along with being Black, he also became popular through social media instead of the Nashville music scene, which often dictates the next big country music stars. Lil Nas X dodged the question when asked if he thought race played a role in the affair, but stated that he believed the song should have stayed on the chart.

Disappointed by the news, Lil Nas X did the only thing he could do and recruited the OG country hitmaker himself, Billy Ray Cyrus. Then hours later, he was featured in a remix of the song released early Friday.

It is believed Varane wants to challenge himself in another division after a hugely successful spell in Spain. He said: "There's a lot of talk about next season, but we must respect the players that are here".

Around the same time, Lil Nas X is signed to Columbia Records.

Billboard and country enthusiasts should be embracing the latest evolution of country music, not denying its inclusion.

"Old Town Road" now holds the Number 15 spot on the latest Hot 100.

"I loved the song the first time I heard it".

"I'm always going to be experimenting musically, trying new things", he told Complex in an interview. Don't think outside the box.

Country music has long employed pop and rock elements and songs like Jason Aldean's "Dirt Road Anthem", which hit No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, mix hip-hop and country.
