Post Malone Pays Tribute To Toby Keith With “As Good As I Once Was” At American Rodeo

Post Malone

Over a month after his death and the tributes to the Big Dog Daddy keep pouring in.

Ever since Toby Keith passed away on February 5, tributes to the ’90s country legend have been pouring. From Darius Rucker and Jelly Roll to Zach Bryan and Flatland Cavalry, it seems there aren’t many in country music who weren’t fans of Toby and his music.

Of course Toby had quite a few fans outside of country music too. Even Stephen Colbert, who may seem like the total opposite of a guy like Toby Keith, mourned the loss of his “unlikely” friend after his passing.

And it seems like Post Malone was a big Toby Keith guy too.

It’s not really a surprise since Posty has been dipping his toe into country music quite a bit lately. He was featured on the first single from Hardy’s new album, Hixtape Vol. 3: Difftapeand joined Morgan Wallen and Hardy for a tribute to Joe Diffie on “Pickup Man” at the 2023 CMA Awards.

And more recently, Post dropped a teaser of the next song from his country era, a duet with Luke Combs.

He was also spotted recently jamming out to “Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue” with Ernest.

So it only made sense for Post to pay tribute to Toby Keith during his show at the American Rodeo in Arlington, Texas.

Earlier this week when Jelly Roll was headlining the Houston Rodeo, he paid his respects with a cover of “Should’ve Been a Cowboy.”

So when Post Malone took the stage in nearby DFW, he also broke out a Toby Keith song, performing a stripped-back acoustic version of “As Good As I Once Was” from Toby’s 2005 album Honkytonk University.
