Facing a social media campaign to push a rap song to the #1 hit on the country charts – despite getting no air play on country radio – Billboard is in a very bad position. Having a rap song at the top of the Country chart makes it clear how out of touch Billboard is. Saying that a black “musician” is not eligible to make country music would be riot worthy material. So Billboard disallowed the song on the basis that it as not “country enough”. So Billy Ray Cyrus is “helping” by doing a remix to add some real country cred to the song and putting Billboard on the path to incineration.

So if you can get to #1 without being on any country music stations, what does that say about radio?
