Watch Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus and Keith Urban Surprise Fans by Joining Forces on “Old Town Road” at CMA Fest

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.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
