Take us to church, Posty.

Post Malone is the man on everyone’s lips after his weekend in the desert for Stagecoach. Everyone is hoping that his ’90s country spectacular of a set, combined with him and Morgan Wallen debuting their song “I Had Some Help,” means that his country album is coming sooner rather than later.

The entire time he was on the stage was electric, but I really think that his cover of Randy Travis‘ “Three Wooden Crosses” needs its own shining moment.

The 2002 hit from Travis is undoubtedly one of his most moving songs as he sings the heartbreaking story of three people who passed away in car wrecks. In memory of their life, a wooden cross was placed on the highway at the place where they took their last breath.

The song saddens listeners by reminding us who the wooden crosses represent when we see them as we drive down the highway.

Post Malone tipped his hat to the great Randy Travis during his Stagecoach set performing the classic. Like Post Malone or not, you have to admit the guy knows how to lay down a solid cover. Posty keeps the traditional sound of the wailing steel guitar and acoustic guitar, with his vocals being the focal point of the track. The simple composition screams classic country but also allows Posty to drive home the heaviness of the lyrics.

“There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highwayWhy there’s not four of them, Heaven only knowsI guess it’s not what you take when you leave this world behind youIt’s what you leave behind you when you go”

Posty knocked this one out of the park, along with the many other covers he sang throughout his set. Nothing like blasting a sad country song to kick-start your week.
