Post Malone is officially in his country music era and just gave fans a taste of his collaboration with Luke Combs.

Is Post Malone Going Country?

In a short snippet posted to social media on Thursday afternoon (Feb. 15), Malone teased the brand-new, never-before-heard song alongside a beer emoji and a tag for Luke Combs. 

The video features the genre-bending star jamming out to the track in a studio, possibly listening to a final mix to be released at a later date. The lyrics include the superstars singing the words “Ain’t Got A Guy For That,” which could be the title of the song, however, specific details surrounding the tune have yet to be released.

Comments on the Instagram post poured in immediately, with fans displaying their excitement for Post Malone’s country era. 

One Instagram user praised, “IT’S HAPPENING 👀” while another declared, “This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for 🙌🙌”

Was Pictured In The Studio With Several Country Artists

Post Malone was pictured with several country artists, including Combs as well as ERNEST and Brad Paisley ahead of his buzzed-about performance at the CMA Awards. Photos of Malone with various artists and songwriters appeared on social media in the days leading up to “Country Music’s Biggest Night.”

It’s unclear what they were working on in the studio together, but fans believe he may be working on a full country project.

Malone’s first step into country music appears to come in the form of a Joe Diffie tribute with HARDY.  The pair famously performed Diffie’s “Pickup Man” with Morgan Wallen at the CMA Awards last fall and the HIXTAPE Vol. 3: DIFFTAPE was announced immediately after. This project serves as a tribute to the late Joe Diffie and will be released in its entirety on March 29.

Previously Covered Country Hits

The Texas native’s foray into country music shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans. He has previously covered Brad Paisley’s “I’m Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin’ Song),” and has also shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the genre, including Little Big Town, Darius Rucker, and Blake Shelton.

Last spring, the “Circles” singer sparked speculation about the possibility of recording a country album when he shared a selfie with cowboy boots and admitted to be spending quite a bit of time in the studio.

Is A Full Country Album On The Way?

During an interview on ​​The Howard Stern Show, while promoting his 2022 album, Twelve Carat Toothache, Malone discussed the possibility of a country album

“To be honest, there’s nothing stopping me from taking a camera or setting up in my studio in Utah and just recording a country album [to put] on YouTube,” he told Stern. “I’m allowed to do that. I’m a human being.”

Stern then asked Post Malone why he hasn’t already released a country project, to which he replied “I split my time between a lot of different things because I am happily obligated to do concerts and show love to my fans … and then I’m happily obligated to write music and make beats by myself, and I’m happily obligated to, you know, take care of my family. So, it’s a lot of time, and it’s about finding that space to allot that time.”

“If I get another year to myself, maybe I’ll make a f–king country album,” he added. 

Post Malone is set to perform at Stagecoach 2024 on Saturday, April 27 alongside artists such as Miranda Lambert, Willie Nelson, and more.
