Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus took home two trophies for their smash hit, “Old Town Road,” at the BET Hip Hop Awards, which aired on Oct. 8 from Atlanta.

“Old Town Road” won Best Collab/Duo or Group, besting nominations from Cardi B and Bruno Marks (“Please Me”), DJ Khaled, Nipsey Hussle and John Legend (“Higher”) and more.

In addition, the smash hit, which spent a record 19 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, won Single of the Year, besting nominations from Cardi B (“Money”), Suge (“Dababy”) and more.

“Thank you to the BET Hip Hop Awards and hip hop/rap community for the Best Collab and Single of the Year wins,” said Billy Ray. “You kept OTR at No. 1 for 19 consecutive weeks. More importantly, you made me feel welcomed into your home and world. I’m dedicating these wins to Mr. Nipsey Hussle—a legend gone way too soon.”
