Lil Nas X Covers TIME Magazine

Lil Nas X

This week’s TIME cover story is a package on country music that includes a profile of Lil Nas X, the 20-year-old  who created “Old Town Road” and used the internet to beat Nashville at its own game!

On the initial response “Old Town Road,” Lil Nas X tells TIME: “I was doing radio tours, and one guy looked me in the eye and said, ‘I love the song, but I don’t think I’ll play it.’ The perception was that the audience wouldn’t accept an African-American singer.”

TIME also includes piece by Grammy-winning musician Tim McGraw and Pulitzer Prize–winning historian Jon Meacham on how racial and ethnic diversity has been the rare exception in country music rather than the rule.
