Billy Ray Cyrus appeared on the Grand Ole Opry last Saturday to perform two of his hottest charting #1 songs, “Achy Breaky Heart” and “Old Town Road.”
Atlantic/Big Loud Records artist and internet sensation Mason Ramsey made a surprise appearance with Cyrus to perform “Old Town Road,” the remix version of the song they perform with Lil Nas X and Young Thug. The song has reigned at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 16 weeks and is primed to make six-decade history as the longest run at #1 in Billboard history if it reaches week 17.
“17 is my new favorite number! 17 weeks No. 1 Single “Old Town Road.” 17 weeks No. 1 Album Some Gave All. My goal was always to make music that would touch people’s lives around the world,” said Cyrus.
“Old Town Road” (Columbia Records) also leads Streaming Songs, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts for 17 weeks each, according to Billboard.
