Lil Nas X’s ‘Old Town Road’ inspires nonverbal boy with autism to sing

The song has sparked controversy and spawned a clothing line. It got Billy Ray Cyrus a Maserati and has made Lil Nas X a household name.

Now, it seems, “Old Town Road” has inspired a nonverbal, autistic 4-year-old to sing.

On Tuesday, Minnesota mom Sheletta Brundidge tweeted about her family’s “#oldtownroad miracle.”

“My son Daniel has #autism and doesn’t talk. We caught him humming the @LilNasX and @billyraycyrus tune the other day. Then Bless God, my baby started singing the song on his own. His therapists have started to use it in his sessions!”

“Old Town Road” quickly climbed the Billboard charts in April and gained national attention when Billboard removed it from the Hot Country Songs chart, declaring it not country enough.

The song has now spent nine weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and even broke the streaming record previously held by Drake.

The Atlanta rapper recently partnered with Wrangler and released a clothing line inspired by the song.
