Lil Nas X & Billy Ray Cyrus Win Two BET Hip Hop Awards for “Old Town Road”

Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus took home two trophies for their smash hit, “Old Town Road,” at the BET Hip Hop Awards, which aired on Oct. 8 from Atlanta.

“Old Town Road” won Best Collab/Duo or Group, besting nominations from Cardi B and Bruno Marks (“Please Me”), DJ Khaled, Nipsey Hussle and John Legend (“Higher”) and more.

In addition, the smash hit, which spent a record 19 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, won Single of the Year, besting nominations from Cardi B (“Money”), Suge (“Dababy”) and more.

“Thank you to the BET Hip Hop Awards and hip hop/rap community for the Best Collab and Single of the Year wins,” said Billy Ray. “You kept OTR at No. 1 for 19 consecutive weeks. More importantly, you made me feel welcomed into your home and world. I’m dedicating these wins to Mr. Nipsey Hussle—a legend gone way too soon.”

“Old Town Road” is nominated for Musical Event of the Year at the upcoming CMA Awards in November.
