Lil Nas X can now call himself an author. The “Old Town Road” hitmaker has penned a children’s book titled C Is For Country, which is scheduled to be released in January 2021.
“I’m dropping the best kids book of all time soon!” he wrote on Instagram. “C IS FOR COUNTRY, out January 5, 2021 from @randomhousekids. I can’t wait to share it with you all. You can pre-order it right now at the link in my bio.”
