Lil Nas X might be taking a break from music but he's still making time to hit the red carpet.
The 20-year-old who first took the world—and the interwebz—by storm for his viral sensation "Old Town Road" just made his first red carpet appearance since he announced he was taking a break from music. In case you missed it, the young star announced back in September, via Twitter, that he was "ready to take a little time off" following a "wild" seven months.
"sorry to everyone attending twitchcon or the sandbox music festival, i will not be there. i love u guys and will make it up to you in some way," the rapper continued.
After making history for having his country rap breakout single, featuring country superstar Billy Ray Cyrus, on Billboard's Hot 100 for 19 consecutive weeks (the only song to do since the chart began in 1958), the young Georgia native felt it was time to take a step back.
But tonight, he's stepping out for the 2019 CMA Awards to claim what's his. The young rapper was nominated for Musical Event of the Year for "Old Town (Remix)" and won!
