Billy Ray Cyrus Releasing Remix Of Lil Nas X’s "Old Town Road"

Billy Ray Cyrus

As you might expect, fans had their suspicions about what exactly it was about the song that was a problem...

Country music star Billy Ray Cyrus has joined forces with rapper Lil Nas X for a remix of a song that was removed from the Billboard country charts. "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". However, Billboard told the magazine that, upon further review, the artist's song did not merit inclusion on its country chart-causing a bit of controversy.

Readers can press play above to hear Lil Nas X and Cyrus' "Old Town Road" remix, which features an added verse sung by Cyrus. "Don't think outside the box. Think like there is no box.' #HorsesInTheBack", he tweeted on March 27, referencing the lyrics of Lil Nas X's song.

Obviously, those who were listening to the song disagreed, because it continued to climb up the chart. "Means you're doing something great".

However, as more and more country artists have begun to experiment with genre crossover and stylistic experimentation, it has become more hard to define what, exactly, the sonic elements of a country song are.

"Upon further review, it was determined that "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X does not now merit inclusion on Billboard's country charts", Billboad said in a statement. Rolling Stone took note of Billboard taking it off the charts, and Billboard seems to only note that it doesn't fit in their standards for modern country music.
