A country vet and a rap rookie are trending topics after unleashing a new remix of “Old Town Road.”
Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus teamed up to remix the crossover country-trap hit that blew up from memes on social media and wound up getting even bigger when Billboard yanked it off the Hot Country Songs chart.
Billy Ray’s new lyrics line up well with the song’s theme. During his part, Mr. “Achy Break Heart” name-drops some of the finer things, like “Fendi Sports bras” and “Ridin’ down Rodeo in my Maserati sports car.”
"Old Town Road Remix" featuring Billy Ray Cyrus is now streaming. The new version adds some traditional country elements, including banjos and some whistling.
