As “Old Town Road” continues its massive dominance and pop culture ubiquity, Lil Nas X is riding the success like his “horses in the back” and seems to be making all the right turns!
Today he announced over social media that he never meant the name as any sort of disrespect to hip-hop legend Nas, and would be changing it soon.
The other major Lil Nas X story today is news he’ll be performing with Billy Ray Cyrus at Stagecoach, the post-Coachella west coast country festival known for its surprises.
Billy Ray also stood up for Lil Nas X when a Nashville banner on Music Row went up congratulating him on the song, and he made a banner himself emphasizing the original artist – and producer (!) Kio‘s – inclusion.
