Blake Shelton is clarifying the lyrics to his new song.
The 43-year-old country singer teamed up with Trace Adkins for the new song “Hell Right” – and people are thinking that he’s dissing Lil Nas X and his number one hit song “Old Town Road.”
“Then the girl from the small town took off the ‘Old Town’ put on a little Hank Jr.” Blake sings while Trace adds, “Thank God.”
In the past, Lil Nas X has said he prefers listening to country singer Hank Williams Jr. over Blake.
A spokesperson for Blake released a statement saying that he isn’t dissing Lil Nas X on the song.
“It’s absolutely not throwing any kind of shade at Lil Nas X at all,” the spokesperson shared with Variety. “Blake says this literally has nothing to do with anything at all except how much the song is played.”
Blake then seemingly threw a swipe at Lil Nas X‘s “Old Town Road” collaborate Billy Ray Cyrus.
“It could have been ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ or any other (overplayed) song,” the rep said before adding, “Blake talked to Billy Ray and he thought it was funny.”
Lil Nas X then seemingly responded to the shade in a now deleted tweet that said, “It don’t slap like old town road tho” along with a link to Variety‘s original story.
