Keith Urban joined surprise guest Lil Nas X along with Billy Ray Cyrus during Saturday (June 8th) night’s performance of “Old Town Road” at Nissan Stadium during CMA Music Festival. Keith did his own version of the history-making song which he shared on Instagram and apparently it got Lil Nas’ attention. Last night (Sunday, June 9th), he told us: [“I just loved the song when I heard it. I loved the record, too, you know? They’re sometimes very separate things, the song to a record, but I just loved it and wanted to do my little cover version of it on my gango and from that very spontaneous moment Nas saw the piece that I did and really loved it apparently and next thing I know I playing with them last night.”] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . them last night.)
Keith, Lil Nas X and Billy Ray’s performance is almost certain to make the upcoming ABC-TV special, CMA Fest, which is set to air on August 4th. The show was taped over the course of the four-day CMA Music Festival which just wrapped up last night in Nashville.
