"Old Town Road' entered the Billboard Hot 100, the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songschart, and debuted at number 19 on the Hot Country Songs chart". What's the rudimentary element of a country and western song?

What makes country music?

Moses Sumney, a self-described "genre-agnostic" musician, said on Twitter that "much of the music on the country chart barely possesses associating qualities of the genre", and the only "difference is race".

Instead of getting angry with the system, however, Lil Nas X found a way to add traditional country music flair to "Old Town Road".

Lil Nas X has released a remix of his viral hit song "Old Town Road" featuring Billy Ray Cyrus.

"I believe whenever you're trying something new, it's always going to get some kind of bad reception", the 19-year-old star told Time. Lil Nas X unknowingly sparked an important debate on the genre's origin, ownership and discrimination throughout the industry. TikTok users employ the song as the backdrop for a challenge that sees them change into their most "country" outfits.

Yes, you read that correctly: Mullet-rocking Billy Ray Cyrus.

For the third time in less than 24 hours, a new song has reached #1 on the United States iTunes sales chart. In response to the event, Lil Nas X said that the single should be considered a country song and a trap song. "Think like there is no box.' #HorsesInTheBack", he tweeted on March 27, referencing the lyrics of Lil Nas X's song.

'When I got thrown off the charts, Waylon Jennings said to me "Take this as a compliment" means you're doing something great! A music writer from Nashville, Shane Morris, went further, and argued that Lil Nas X was targeted because he "is a black man, from black Hollywood, AKA Atlanta".
