The pair rode actual horses to one of the entrances of the Microsoft Theatre (where the awards show took place) before entering to take the stage and perform the remix to Lil Nas’ “Old Town Road.”

Lil Nas recently released his debut EP 7. The eight-track project features both the original and remix versions of “Old Town Road.”

“Billy told me I reminded him of him,” Lil Nas said.
