MUTANT

Lil Nas X might not be a huge fan of country music, but his 2019 spotlight comes from the worldwide hit “Old Town Road” of his upcoming debut studio album. So it’s a surprise when the track received a remix from country music veteran Billy Ray Cyrus.

The original “Old Town Road” broke with the help of the popular TikTok vine app. Lil Nas X released a clip for the original with footage from the Red Dead Redemption video game, which also takes place in a country setting. The song was on the Billboard Country Music Chart, then was deleted with citing reason “Not (to embrace) enough elements of today’s country music to feature in its current version …” Lil Nas X opened up about the removal from Billboard Country with Genius.com: “Then it was amazing to get the support of country stars because it’s like it’s their voice. It’s like you got the respect from the people who have been doing this for a while. is the first time I have tried something country influenced. However, the song reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

This controversy paved the way for a collaboration with veteran country music star Billy Ray Cyrus. With its new verse, can “Old Town Road (Remix)” hit the country music charts?

Billy Ray Cyrus has expressed his allegiance to Lil Nas X on social media, and how he could relate to this song after witnessing an “Old Town” road in Argillite, Kentucky.

In this remix, Billy Ray Cyrus launches the song with the chorus of the original version. Then he adds a third verse to the original lyrics. In his verse, Billy recounts how he has moved to cities since he embraced his celebrity status. He grew up in Kentucky and now lives in California. The city is known for its celebrities with a “rockstar” lifestyle with drugs, sex and alcohol.

Billy Ray Cyrus probably has to spend a lot more on his guitars than the average guitarist. Billy Cyrus is left-handed, and custom-made guitars for left-handed people can cost a few thousand dollars more than a regular guitar.

“Baby” could be a reference to Tish Cyrus (mother of Miley Cyrus), who also appears in the above excerpt, where she participates in the remix of “Old Town Road” with a tambourine. Tish Cyrus may have luxury tastes. According to Billy, she prefers the Fendi brand which is a luxury fashion brand. A Fendi sports bra, referenced in the song, costs an average of $ 200 to $ 500.

Billy Ray Cyrus captures two worlds together when he says he loves “Ridin ‘down Rodeo in my Maserati sports car”. ‘Rodeo’ is a reference to the sport / activity of horseback riding, which suits the theme of the song. However, ‘Rodeo Drive’ is a stretch of road in California with luxury shopping. Therefore, even though Billy hints at his past as a Country man, his current lifestyle puts him in a different vibe.

Malboro is a popular cigarette brand that used a man riding a horse and smoking a cigarette as an advertising mascot.
