Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails have won their first Country Music Award for “Old Town Road (Remix)” which won an award for Musical Event of The Year beating out Maren Morris, Brooks & Dunn, Garth Brooks and Blake Shelton, and Brantley Gilbert and Lindsay Ell. While the song is attributed to Lil Nas X, CMA awards go to both artists and producers, meaning that the rapper shares the award with Reznor, Ross, Billy Ray Cyrus, and YoungKio.
“Old Town Road (Remix)” features an interpolation of a track off of the Nine Inch Nails compilation Ghosts I-IV. Due to the fact that the compilation contains numerous extended tracks in four parts, the title is simply called “Ghosts IV.”
Reznor and Ross have been busy composing numerous film scores in recent years, performing on the soundtrack for th upcoming HBO series Watchmen, the hit Netflix film Bird Box,and a new film featuring Amy Adams entitled The Woman in The Window.
In a recent interview, Reznor also revealed that he and Ross are planning on working on more Nine Inch Nails material.
“Right now, we are finishing up Watchmen, and we’re working on the Pixar film (Soul)that we are doing. And we have plans for Nine Inch Nails stuff, but we haven’t got down to doing it because literally every minute of the day for the last several months has working on score stuff. But the plan is to do stuff, yes.”
