Billy Ray Cyrus makes statement with Lil Nas X collaboration

Billy Ray Cyrus

Even Billy Ray Cyrus spoke out on Twitter, supporting Lil Nas X's desire to create country music.

A second statement from Billboard said: "Billboard's decision to take the song off of the country chart had absolutely nothing to do with the race of the artist". He recalled that country legend Waylon Jennings once told him that every now and then the music business outlaws somebody because they are different.

Miley "distanced" herself from the genre back in 2017 telling XXL magazine that "It was too much "Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my c**k"-I am so not that".

"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.

"Cyrus first championed "Old Town Road" on social media: "'Don't try and think inside the box.

It still remains to be seen, however, if the song will make it back on the Billboard Hot Country Songs. The song originally charted on Billboard's Hot 100, Hot Country and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop charts simultaneously in March.

While it's been a divisive road of acceptance - Billboard removed it from its country chart last month - there's one person who does get it: Billy Ray Cyrus.

Shortly thereafter, according to Rolling Stone, Billboard removed the song from the country charts entirely, telling Lil Nas X's label that its original inclusion was a mistake. After Lil Nas X delivers his memorable bars, Cyrus closes out the song echoing lyrics about luxurious cars and jewelry.

Feeling the pressure, Billboard reconsidered its choice and re-entered the song in its country charts, categorically denying that the move was racially motivated. Don't think outside the box. The remix of "Old Town Road" is available on Spotify.
