Billy Ray Cyrus, who will appear during tonight’s MTV VMA Awards where he’s nominated in 8 categories, is still celebrating “Old Town Road,” which enjoyed 19 weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100 and also made former President Barack Obama’s summer 2019 playlist.
Billy Ray says, “I’ve been on some lists before but never one quite like this one! Thank you Mr. President, Michelle, and the girls, Malia and Sasha. Seems like only yesterday at your second inaugural Miley joined me on “Ready Set Don’t Go.” Now you have your own show on Netflix and I get to watch you. Congratulations! Keep up the great work for our world. Also, if you still have some friends at G7 please tell them the rainforest fire needs help today. It’s so devastating. Proud to be part of #44!”
He posted to Instagram last night, “Thank you @barackobama. Thank you @michelleobama Malia & Sasha. Keep up the great work for our world.”
