Brothers Osborne on Lil Nas X 'Old Town Road': 'Get in Line'

The Brothers Osborne Invoked Struggling Nashville Songwriters In Their Critique Of Lil Nas X

Because of the popularity of his song, Lil Nas X - a 19-year-old rapper from Atlanta, Georgia - landed on the 15th spot of the Billboard Hot 100 and no. 1 on the Country Billboard 100, according to New York Magazine.

Lil Nas X explained that he worked on the song while living with his sister, and he was inspired by the "runaway loner cowboy" lyrics.

Its removal inflamed social media debate over race and genre, with many decrying white-washing in the country music industry and saying the musician's hit was pigeonholed as hip hop purely because he is black.

Cyrus not only co-signed Lil Nas X in the studio, but he also took it to Twitter, where he said there no way that it wasn't country, throwing "shade" at Billboard for taking the song off the chart.

Christopher Slutman, a 15-year FDNY member, was among three American service members killed by a roadside bomb on Monday. The Taliban say they will speak with the government representatives but recognize them only as "ordinary" Afghans.

Here's where Cyrus comes in. "I believe Young Thug would be one of the biggest pioneers in that". And while I think Cyrus added a lot to the track - his gravelly vocals on both the intro chorus and his verse just sound so good - I truly think this was a country song before Cyrus touched it. Then I thought, it's honest, humble, and has an infectious hook, and a banjo. "Within its sixth week, "Old Town Road " was the fastest song to climb the Hot 100 since Zayn's "Pillowtalk" from February 2016", Blavity writes.

Since the Billy Ray Cyrus remix debuted on Friday and Billboard's Hot 100 relies on a Friday-Thursday tracking period, this week's position does not account for any of the remix's sales and streams (it does account for the slight amount of airplay that went to the remix on Friday, Saturday and Sunday).

Listen to the chart-topping remix and its predecessor below.
