Billy Ray Cyrus is riding high these days off the success of his collaboration with Lil Nas X for “Old Town Road.” The song has been at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 all genre chart for 16 consecutive weeks.

That gives BRC every reason to celebrate and relax. We just didn’t know how relaxed the country boy would become. In a post on Instagram, Billy Ray hits the pool, relaxing on an oversized unicorn floaty. Chalk that up to things we never thought we’d see.
“Got no stress I’ve been through all that, like a Marlboro man so I kick on back,” Billy Ray writes in the caption, referring us to lyrics from “OldTown Road.”.
But there is something zen about the photo, taken by his daughter Brandi Cyrus, which reminds us to enjoy the ride even if it’s a unique journey. Just like we never thought we’d see this photo, we’re pretty sure BRC and Lil Nas X never imagined the success their little song would amass. After being booted off the country charts earlier this year, BRC and Lil Nas took the song to new heights.
Even appearing on both the CMA Fest stage and the BET awards together to sing the song the all audiences have rallied around. The little song that could has Billy Ray and the rest of us, seeing unicorns and loving every minute of it.
