Today marks the release of the official “Old Town Road” movie by Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus.
While it is being characterized as a movie in the bio and description of the video, this is in fact an additional music video for the song just in a more cinematic and story-telling format. It takes place in both a western fantasy land and what also appears to be the streets of Compton, CA.
