Earlier today, singer/songwriter Ernestshared a photo of himself with friend and frequent collaborator Morgan Wallen and mega star Post Malone in the studio, so I think it’s pretty safe to say they might be cookin’ somethin’ up…
Posty, a Texas native, was obviously rockin’ the Texas Rangers hat after their big (first) World Series win last week, and also had a full beard going so much so that I almost didn’t recognize him (the face tattoos did give it away, though.)
Anywho, Post is set to perform this week at the CMA Awards alongside Morgan and HARDY as they sing a medley of “country classics,” which already feels like an easy highlight of the evening as Post Malone is known to crush a country cover or two.
Ernest also tagged producer/writer Ryan Vojtesak in the photo, so hopefully we’ll be able to hear whatever this is sooner rather than later.
Like I said before, Post Malone and Morgan being two of the biggest musical acts in the game working together just makes so much sense from a business standpoint alone, especially knowing how damn good at country music Posty already is.
He’s said before that his favorite artists include the likes ofTyler Childers, Sturgill Simpson and Colter Wall, so he obviously has great taste which is a damn good place to start.
Ern captioned the photo pretty discretely, saying:
Post Malone To Perform Medley Of Country Classics With Morgan Wallen And Hardy At CMA Awards
This is certainly going to be interesting.
And probably the only part of the CMA Awards I’ll be tuning in for, honestly…
Yesterday, they announced the second round of performers for the show, which includes a tribute to the late, great Jimmy Buffet by Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Mac McAnally and Zac Brown Band, in addition to performances by Ashley McBryde, Cody Johnson, The War & Treaty, Dan and Shay and Jordan Davis, as well.
But the name that immediately caught my attention on the list is mega star Post Malone, who was announced as part of a trio including Morgan Wallen and HARDY.
According to Rolling Stone, the trio is slated to perform a “medley of country classics.”
Posty is just so damn good at doing country by himself, and I feel like he should’ve been given the reigns to get up there and sing whatever country song he wanted to without any help, but at the very least, it makes me excited that he’s into dipping his toes in the genre like this, so to speak.
