I mean, I said it back in August…
Matthew McConaughey’s “We’re Texas” virtual benefit concert was an absolute smash tonight, featuring stellar performances from George Strait, Miranda Lambert, Parker McCollum, Randy Rogers, Willie Nelson and a ton more.
And as of right now, the running count on the donation jar says a whopping $236,000 was raised so far. Let’s keep it going.
But as good as all the performances were, the show was capped off with an absolute knockout performance from Post Malone, who just so happed to be in the studio with Dwight Yoakam’s band.
And with one of the nastiest curveballs I’ve ever seen in my entire life, Post and company started in on a performance of Brad Paisley’s 2002 hit, “I’m Gonna Miss Her.”
And it was AWESOME.
I mean, I knew Post Malone could do country music, I just didn’t know how much I would love it.
But that wasn’t all…
During the ending credits, Post was back, this time with a boot stomping, jaw dropping cover of Sturgill Simpson’s “You Can Have The Crown.”
Yes, you heard that correctly… Post Malone, with Dwight Yoakam’s band, covering an all-time great Sturgill Simpson classic. And he CRUSHED it.
I’m telling you, we need that Post Malone country album, and we need it bad.
At this point, it’s pretty well know that Post Malone loves himself some country music.
His Shania Twain love has been well documented, he rocked a Dolly Parton outfit on stage at Bonnaroo, he’s played with with Dwight Yoakam and others, talked about his desire to work with George Strait, and now, we even have Sturgill looking to produce a live instrument Post Malone album.
We recently saw him rocking a Tyler Childers tee on set with Noah Veluzat, and he was also spotted donning a Colter Wall Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs t-shirt in conjunction with his brand new Celebrity World Pong League.
And to top it all off, he’s been hanging out with the very talented Billy Strings.
So yeah, does Post Malone singing country music surprise me? No. But he sounds pretty damn good doin’ it and sure as hell wouldn’t be mad if I got to hear some more.
And remember folks, this was all for charity so drop a few bucks in the tip jar if you can.
