The rapper and pop superstar made his country debut at the CMA Awards last night when he took the stage with Hardy and Morgan Wallen to perform a rousing rendition of Joe Diffie’s 1994 hit “Pickup Man.”
And while he’ll be featured Hardy’s forthcomingHixtape Vol. 3: DIFFTAPE album, which is slated to drop on March 29th, 2024 and is already headed to country radio as an official single, many fans are still left wanting more (myself included).
Luckily, it seems as though it’s in the works and might actually be coming sooner rather than later…
Access Hollywood’s Emily Orozco spoke to Posty briefly while backstage at the event right after his performance, where the ever-humble superstar joked that he wasn’t “nervous at all,” adding that it was “an amazing experience”:
“So much fun. I’m not nervous at all! That’s a lie. And I had so much fun. It was an amazing experience.”
And when pressed on whether or not he has his own, real deal country album coming soon, he replied:
“I think so! Yes, ma’am.”
THAT is the news I was hoping to get out of Post Malone attending the CMA’s:
He has spoken so highly of them before (in addition to expressing interest in working with them) and really has great taste in all kinds of country… like, can you imagine a Sturgill Simpson-produced Post Malone country album?
I think it would be so epic:
Dear Post Malone,
Go make that country album. Call up Sturgill to produce it. Get Dwight Yoakam's band. Whatever you gotta do, make it happen.
Post is obviously a global superstar and very talented musician, and he’s 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.
He was also pictured in town this past week working with Luke Combs, Brad Paisley, Ernest and more, so I think it’s pretty safe to say many of them will be involved in whatever else comes from his time in Music City.
And while you’re here, you have to see him singin’ “Pickup Man.” Once again, I say, he stole the show:
