Unless you've been under a rock all year, you've heard Lil Nas X's massive single "Old Town Road," a hip-hop hit with country undertones courtesy of Billy Ray Cyrus (of "Achy, Breaky Heart" fame). It's arguably the biggest track in the world at the moment, so it's no wonder that the tune is inserting itself into every facet of the music world, EDM included. 

It certainly piqued the interest of Matt McGuire, the touring drummer for EDM superstars The Chainsmokers. Matt apparently likes the track so much that he took it upon himself to provide a drum cover of the tune. 

Adding flair and intricacies to the rather basic drum beat of "Old Town Road", McGuire heated the track up even more with his drum cover. In just four days, the cover has already gained over 200,000 plays on YouTube. McGuire's enthusiasm about the cover can clearly be seen in the video as he vivaciously plays through the song.
