Jessie James Decker Covers Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” Fans React

Jessie James Decker has put her own spin on Lil Nas X’s “Old Country Road,”–and is already climbing the country music charts. According to Broadway World, Decker’s slowed-down version dropped on Thursday and had some fans wondering why the original version was pulled off the <i>Billboard</i> charts in the first place. “Serious question that I want to get your take on: what would make your version any more country than the original to <i>Billboard</i>?” one fan asked Decker on Twitter. A second added, “My question is more about why <i>Billboard</i> took the original version off of the country charts saying it wasn’t country, but Jessie’s version is considered country and is played on country radio.” Decker started covering the track on her latest tour and even added some of her own lyrics. Decker joked on Instagram Thursday, “I may be getting on a horse riding up and down on Broadway if this goes number one!”
