Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” Featuring Billy Ray Cyrus Wins Song of the Year at MTV’s VMAs

Lil Nas X earned his first trophy at MTV’s Video Music Awards on Aug. 26 as his smash hit, “Old Town Road,” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, won Song of the Year.

The tune, which spent a record 19 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, bested hits from Drake, Ariana Grande, Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.

“This is my first award ever,” said Lil Nas X, as he accepted the moon man trophy onstage next to Billy Ray. “I want to say thank you to this man [Billy Ray] for helping me take my career to the next level.

“I never dreamed I’d be standing here tonight,” added Billy Ray “One time, Johnny Cash wrote me a letter, and in the letter, he said, ‘It’s good to be reminded where all goodness comes from: Almighty God.'”
