All The ‘Old Town Road’ Updates You Didn’t Know You Needed


Mon, May, 6 by

In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t noticed, Lil Nas X has been riding a wave of success from his now-viral track “Old Town Road.” From covers to live performances with John Mayer, this song is showing no signs of slowing down. There’s even another music video on its way.

Here are all the “Old Town Road” updates you didn’t know you needed.


Lil Nas X Performs With John Mayer

For starters, Lil Nas X performed a live acoustic version of the track with John Mayer on Instagram live. The two were together for Mayer’s live Instagram show Current Mood. 


A Third Grade Class Covered The Track

A third grade class from Birmingham, Alabama remixed the song too. On April 30, Ms. Merlette tweeted a clip of her class singing their version of the country-trap track. A few days later, both Lil Nas X and Bill Ray Cyrus tweeted their approval of their cover.


“Old Town Road” Gets A Remixed Remix

Last week, another version of the track came out, this time courtesy of Diplo. The DJ took the Bill Ray Cyrus remix—and remixed it. Remix-ception. The version came after Diplo brought Lil Nas X and Cyrus out for their first live performance of the song at the Stagecoach Festival last week. Introducing the duo, Diplo expressed his support of the song and that insisted that it does indeed belong in the country genre, adding, “This is the best way to end Stagecoach.”


A New Music Video Is Coming For The First Remix

The remix with Bill Ray Cyrus currently sits at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, a spot it’s held for four weeks now. This remix came about after the original version’s controversial removal from the country charts. Billy Ray Cyrus reached out to express his support of the song, and thus the birth of “Old Town Road’s” first remix. A little over a week ago, Lil Nas X teased a new music video for the remix, though there’s no word on when the video will drop.

And get ready for another remix, this time featuring the stylings of Young Thug. Back on April 9, the rapper shared a snippet of his remix on Instagram. Though it’s been almost a month, there’s still no word on when this remix will drop.
