On Friday, rapper Lil Nas X released a remix of his viral trap country song “Old Town Road” featuring pensive cowboy Billy Ray Cyrus.
Judging by the current number of yeehaw memes on Twitter, it’s already a huge success. After Lil Nas X’s recent debacle involving the Billboard charts, it’s also raising questions about who gets to participate in crossover country music.
The 19-year-old originally released the song in December 2018 alongside a Red Dead Redemption-themed video. Within days, it took off on TikTok and debuted on the Billboard Hot Country chart.
