Over the past six months, Post Malone has been easing his way into the country world with a plethora of surprise performances, unreleased teasers and blockbuster collaborations.

With clips of songs with Morgan Wallen and Luke Combs going viral in recent weeks, and with the frequency of snippets and hints regarding Post Malone's debut country album increasing by the day, it feels as though the New York native's rollout will come to a head during his hotly anticipated Stagecoach Festival 2024 set.

He previously called this performance, which will consist of ‘Country Covers’, “a nice little step” into the industry, with Posty previously leaning towards Hip Hop, Rap and Indie.

Long before he confirmed he was working on a country project in 2023, Post Malone's penchant for the genre was widely known through his array of online covers, which led to a range of fans clamouring for the ‘Circles’ hitmaker to venture into the genre.

He's delivered stellar renditions of hits such as Sturgill Simpson's ‘You Can Have The Crown’, Johnny Cash's ‘Cocaine Blues’, Brad Paisley's ‘I'm Gonna Miss Her’, Hank Williams’ ‘Honky Tonk Blues’ and plenty more. Given how wildly popular Posty's Brad Paisley cover is, he's surely got to perform this at Stagecoach, but we also reckon the ‘Chemical’ singer-songwriter will have a few surprises up his sleeve.

The most likely inclusion in Post Malone's Stagecoach 2024 country covers set is ‘Pick-Up Man’ by Joe Diffie, given this was his first official country single and is currently climbing the Country Radio charts. We also expect Post Malone to treat ticket-holders to a special rendition of the late Toby Keith's ’Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue’. Posty played the emotional track during a recent concert, while ERNEST shared a clip of the two singing the much-loved song across socials back in February. With Posty's good buddy ERN also appearing on the Saturday Stagecoach bill, we'd love to see the two link up for an on-stage duet of Keith's hit.

Another electrifying surprise guest - but one that is perhaps a little more of a long shot - would be Shania Twain. We all know Post Malone is a huge Shania fan, with the video of Posty dancing along to her set at the AMAs going viral four years ago, and the bearded crooner sharing that he listens to her music before his performances.

Shania doesn't have any tour-dates lined up until May, so we're hoping she'll make the trip to California for a spectacular joint performance of one of her innumerable hit anthems.

Additionally, Post Malone delved into his love of country outlaw, Colter Wall, on The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast last year, and we think Posty's signature vibrato would sound incredible on Colter's now-iconic break-out smash, ‘Sleeping On The Blacktop’.

Another of Post Malone's favourites is George Strait, and given Posty's upbringing in Texas, we'd be surprised if he doesn't take the opportunity at Stagecoach to pay tribute to the King of Country. ‘All My Ex's Live in Texas’ would be an undeniable crowd-pleaser, and with Post Malone referencing the legendary country song on his 2016 Stoney stand-out, ‘Deja Vu’ (“Girl, this a confession, I'm not like your exes / I came in from Texas, and now that we textin'”) we're keeping our fingers crossed he performs this honky tonk staple in Indio, California.

Post Malone's entry into country music has been deftly and carefully plotted, and he'll no doubt be curating a setlist that entertains the packed-out audience, while not straying into cheesy, karaoke territory. He'll certainly want to showcase his appreciation for alt-country trailblazers, such as Sturgill, but he'll presumably also be mindful of the fact that the Stagecoach crowd will be wanting their fair share of mainstream hits too. Essentially, with his Stagecoach 2024 set being his first full-length country concert, this is the hard launch of Posty's country era.

As a result, even though it's been promoted as a ‘Country Covers’ set, we'd be shocked if Post Malone doesn't deliver the live debut of his Morgan Wallen duet, ‘I Had Some Help’.

The infectious, uptempo track has gone viral over the past few weeks, with fans and commentators speculating that the collaboration will be arriving on streaming platforms in April. Whether it's already out or not by the time Stagecoach rolls into town at the end of the month, we think Posty must be planning to perform this one. Who knows, with Morgan Wallen headlining Stagecoach the day after Post Malone, perhaps they'll even join forces on-stage - either during Posty's Saturday set, or during Morgan's final day show on April 28th.

Regardless of which songs he opts for and who emerges alongside him on the T-Mobile Mane Stage on April 27th, one thing is definite - Post Malone will deliver an incredible set permeated by his charismatic swagger, trademark dance moves and spellbinding vocals. Until then, country music's loyal fanbase will be waiting with bated breath to see what the genre-blending maverick does at Stagecoach.
