Today is a good day for Lil Nas X as he wins Musical Event of the year, in the 53rd Annual CMA Awards. His song “Old Town Road” makes major musical history. The award went to Lil Nas, Billy Ray Cyrus and the producers YoungKio, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
This summer Lil Nas did not let the backlash from the country music community get to him. He stuck with his guns as a black country singer. It seems that he has finally been accepted in what is known to be a predominately white artist genre.
This collaboration between Cyrus and Lil Nas X created the hit single of the year and made history. It was a well deserved award!
