After Billy Ray Cyrus performed his set at Nissan Stadium during CMA Fest on June 8, he left the stage—to the crowd’s displeasure—without singing “Old Town Road,” his record-breaking remix with Lil Nas X.
However, about an hour later, Billy Ray reemerged onstage and delivered the opening lines of the song as Lil Nas X danced his way into vocal synchronization. The surprise didn’t end there, as the tandem was joined by Keith Urban, who plucked his banjo and harmonized.
Billy Ray’s collaboration with Lil Nas X continues to break chart-topping records, hitting 18 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
