Billy Ray Cyrus Is Trending Right Now — Here’s Why!

Posted by

Lil Nas X’s song, “Old Town Road” has been a hit since he released it back in December, even showing up on three different Billboard charts: the Hot 100, Hot Country, and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop. Reaching #19 on the Hot Country chart and was on its way to #1 but Billboard pulled it, saying the reason to Rolling Stone was that “upon further review, it was determined that ‘Old Town Road’ by Lil Nas X does not currently merit inclusion on Billboard‘s country charts. When determining genres, a few factors are examined, but first and foremost is musical composition. While ‘Old Town Road’ 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 says the “decision to take the song off of the country chart had absolutely nothing to do with the race of the artist.”


So where does Billy Ray Cyrus fit into all this? The country artist came in to show support to the young artist a few days ago. “@LilNasX Been watching everything going on with OTR. When I got thrown off the charts, Waylon Jennings said to me “Take this as a compliment” means you’re doing something great! Only Outlaws are outlawed. Welcome to the club!” tweeted Cyrus. Lil NasX and Billy Ray Cyrus then made a remix to “Old Town Road” that is trending right now. Smart move Lil Nas X!
