Lil Nas X became very popular when his song "Old Town Road" quickly rose to #19 on Billboards Hot Country chart. It was later removed because "it wasn't country enough" and this caused a huge online debate.
Country singer Jake Owen went to Twitter to get in on the online debates. Looks like Jake is a fan of Lil Nas X and wanted to show his support.
The extended hand was grabbed and Jake Owen has confirmed that he WILL be collaborating with Lil Nas X!
In a recent interview Jake Owen said, "I've always loved every kind of music, and he wrote a song that came out, people obviously liked it enough to where it starts popping up charting on a country hit. Now, there's definitely elements that people think are country or aren't country, but I think at the end of the day, for me, anything that seems to pop up on our radar and people like it, it's welcome. I leave my doors open any time, because you never know what's gonna walk through."
I don't know about you but I sure am looking forward to hearing it! If you haven't heard "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X, here it is! Enjoy
