Last week Billboard removed theLil Nas Xrap song"Old Town Road"from the Hot Country Songs chart because it wasn't country enough. But this week it clocks in at #53 on their Country Airplay chart . . . because just enough country stations played it.
This is ironic. Last week Billboard yanked theLil Nas Xviral rap song"Old Town Road"from their Hot Country Songs chart . . . because it "didn't embrace enough elements of today's country music."
Well, now it's at #53 on their Country Airplay chart, because that chart measures what's getting played on country stations.
