We knew it was coming, you knew it was coming, and now it’s confirmed. Lil Nas X will be playing the 2019 Cowboys Music Festival! On Friday, July 12th you’ll be able to hear Old Town Road live and in concert! What else is he gonna play? We’ve got no clue. Are we going to be there? You bet your buckin’ horses we are. Yee-fricken-haw, Calgary.

Lil Nas X took over the world this year with his country-hip-hop ultra-bop “Old Town Road”. It was bigger than Mo Bamba, bigger than any meme, and made EVEN BIGGER when Billy Ray Cyrus hopped on it for a remix.

To be honest, Cowboys having Yodel Boy come through for a show last year meant that Lil Nas X was a practical inevitability. That being said, we’re still stoked the announcement has been made for real.

This comes hot on the heels of the Juice WRLD concert announcement. He’ll be playing on the final Sunday, July 14th. That means we’ve got Guy Fieri, Brett Eldredge, Lee Brice, Juice WRLD, and now Lil Nas X hitting the Cowboys stage. Not bad at all!

Lil Nas X presale tickets will be going on sale Thursday, June 13th.
