Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus brought some country swagger to the 2019 BET Awards on Sunday night with a rowdy performance of “Old Town Road.” The duo made a grand entrance on horseback outside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles before making their way through a pair of swinging doors into a saloon setup on stage. For the performance, Nas X opted for a black cowboy hat, boots, yellow chaps, and a yellow leather jacket, while Cyrus wore an all-black outfit and tan hat. As Entertainment Tonight notes, “Old Town Road” has been at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for a whopping 11 weeks.
