1 Song, 1 Minute

EDITORS’ NOTES

The TikTok-spawned phenomenon marries Brothers Osborne and Travis Scott for a country-trap bop fit for Stagecoach and Rolling Loud. “Old Town Road” arrives on the spurs of the video game Red Dead Redemption 2 (which the video directly references), colliding with hip-hop culture and genre-adjacent memes throughout the saloon-ready tune. Lil Nas X showcases a rumbling yet buttery vocal delivery and pairs it with cheeky lyrics that play into the tropes of contemporary hip-hop.

Great song

This song changed my life. Don’t get me wrong, I'm just a simple man with a simple life. I wake up, go to work, go home and sleep. That cycle continues on and on. One day I heard this song playing. I fought myself tapping my foot to the beat of it. Everyday after that I listen to that song. I listen to it and I not only imagine myself as a cowboy, but I know I am one. I have sheltered myself from everyone and everything in my life. I only eat off brand cereal and I work extra hours, just so one faithful day I could maybe purchase my own horse for myself. I am a cowboy. I will ride my horse down those old town roads. I will ride my horse till I cannot no more. I am no longer a simple man with a simple life. I am a cowboy.

Country Classic

This is the BEST Country song released in the past 20 years! Takes me back to my childhood of riding on the tractor on my grandparent's farm! YEE-HAW!!
