By now, hopefully you’ve heard about Lil Nas X and his country slapper “Old Town Road”. For a time it was leading the country charts until some schmuck at Billboard deemed the song not of the country genre. This all happened this past week.
.@billboard removes Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" from Hot Country Songs chart.

The advantageous crossover has people all over social media co-signing the single for good measure.

Can we talk about how Brodie DID THAT in the Atlanta Hawks video at the end?! It’s quite incredible, and with the track only being about 2 minutes in playtime, people are wondering why it isn’t a longer song.
old town road not a short song y’all just used to long ones
