Post Malone is continuing to make his rounds throughout Nashville.
Ahead of his performance on the CMA Awards stage alongside Morgan Wallen and Hardy tomorrow night, where they’ll sing a medley of country classics, he’s also seemingly been writing with some of Music City’s best while he’s in town.
Just the other day, Ernest shared a photo of he, Posty and Morgan Wallen in the studio, and today, writer James McNair shared a photo of himself, Luke Combsand Post in the studio/writers room once again.
McNair co-wrote hits like Luke’s “Beer Can” and “Lovin’ on You,” so I think it’s safe to say Post Malone is likely starting work on some sort of country project, whether it be a single or something more substantial, which he’s hinted at doing multiple times in the past.
McNair of course tagged Luke and Posty in the picture, in addition to country writers Ryan Vojtesak and Ernest, as well as one of Post Malone’s collaborators and writers Billy Walsh and his producer Louis Bell, who worked on Post’s massively successful Stoney album, as well as the follow-up Beerbongs & Bentleys and even his most recent record Austin:
“Figured this one was worth a Post! Magical day of creating with these boys!”
And while we can’t confirm that he is for sure writing, or even recording anything, all signs (and common sense) point to the fact that something “magical” is definitely in the works:
Post is also slated to perform a full set of country covers at Stagecoach next year, and has mentioned the trifecta of Tyler Childers, Sturgill Simpson and Colter Wall as his favorite artists in the genre, or music in general, at the moment.
So yeah, he certainly has good taste…
And while the artists we’ve seen him working with so far are solidly within the “mainstream” country category, there’s definitely still a possibility that he could recruit Stu to help with producing and even head to Colter’s ranch to pen a tune or two.
The Dallas, Texas native clearly has the country chops needed to do it, and has said before that a huge Shania Twain fan, has shared the stage with Darius Rucker and Blake Shelton before, and has even released some of the most bada** country coversthe industry has ever seen.
He actually got his start playing country music at an Italian restaurant in the lone star state, so one could really say this whole endeavor is a long time coming, and hopefully, coming sooner rather than later.
Post is one of the few people I think could really pull it off in a genuine way, and I personally cannot wait to find out what he has up his sleeve.
And I’ll leave you with this masterpiece in case you’ve somehow never seen it before (or even if you have), because that needs to change ASAP:
