Blake Shelton denies dissing Lil Nas X


Shelton’s latest song, featuring fellow country star Trace Adkins, makes an apparent one-line reference to the chart-banging Old Town Road by gay rapper Lil Nas X and country star Billy Ray Cyrus In Hell Right, Shelton, 43, sings: “Then the girl from the small town took off the ‘Old Town’, put on a little Hank Jr.” Adkins adds: “Thank God.” But The Voice judge has dismissed claims that he was dissing the rapper and he even got permission for it from Billy Ray and he thought it was quite funny. In a since-deleted tweet, Lil Nas X wrote: “it don’t slap like old town road tho.” The original version of Old Town Road first made its way into the country charts. But it was removed by Billboard for not being “country enough”. To show support for the country artist, Billy Ray Cyrus collaborated with Lil Nas X on the record-breaking remix.
