Remember When Post Malone Joined Dwight Yoakam For A “Thousand Miles From Nowhere” Duet

Dwight Yoakam Post Malone

Post Malone and Dwight Yoakam… the duet you didn’t know you needed.

During the summer of 2018, Post Malone swung by Dwight Yoakam’s SiriusXM show, Dwight Yoakam & The Bakersfield Beat, and… your new favorite duo was born.

In all seriousness, this is just some guys bein’ dudes. Not just any dudes, but these two seem like two of the coolest dudes you could ever meet, so when they busted out the guitars, a little magic happened.

Malone and Yoakam sang Dwight’s classic, “A Thousand Miles From Nowhere,” as Post has long said he’s a huge fan of traditional country.

Post Malone Teams Up With Dwight Yoakam’s Band

But it didn’t stop there…

Around this time last year, Matthew McConaughey’s “We’re Texas” virtual benefit concert raised $7.7 million for winter storm relief in Texas, and featured a ton of stellar performances from George Strait, Miranda Lambert, Parker McCollum, Randy Rogers, Willie Nelson and more.

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.

I mean, I just can’t stop watching this damn video…
