Old Town Road (Remix) by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus has been nominated for a CMA Award, after breaking the record for remaining No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the most consecutive weeks: 19 straight weeks!
Earlier this year, “Old Town Road” was taken off of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart because, “it does not embrace enough elements of today’s country music to chart in its current version,” according to a rep for Billboard. The remix of the song featured Bill Ray Cyrus and it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The song is up for “Musical Event Of The Year”and is up against Garth Brooks, Maren Morris, Brooks & Dunn, Brantley Gilbert and Lindsay Ell. The song’s producer, YoungKio, is also up for the award.
Lil Nas X recently won a Video Music Award for “Song Of The Hour”. He is also the first out gay man to be nominated for a Country Music Award.
YASSS, get it Lil Nas X!
