Country artists Jelly Roll and Lainey Wilson are preparing to release their collaborative recording of "Save Me" to country radio. The song, which has been steadily climbing the charts for the past 12 weeks, has already reached the No. 46 spot on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
Originally, Jelly Roll recorded a solo version of "Save Me" for his 2020 album "Self Medicated." However, he brought Wilson on stage during the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards to perform a new collaborative version of the song.

The song is an emotionally-charged ballad that explores themes of hopelessness and feeling damaged beyond repair. Jelly Roll and Wilson's vocals blend seamlessly together, creating a powerful and harmonious sound. The chorus lyrics capture the essence of the song's message, expressing feelings of being lost and shattered.
In addition to their live performance at the ACM Awards, Jelly Roll and Wilson also performed "Save Me" during the Season 21 finale of American Idol. The song has received widespread acclaim and continues to resonate with audiences.
Not only does "Save Me" serve as a powerful song, but it is also the title track of Jelly Roll's documentary. The documentary, which premiered on Hulu on May 30, provides an unfiltered look into Jelly Roll's life and his journey from being an incarcerated teen to becoming a successful musician. The film features exclusive access and never-before-seen tour footage, as well as interviews with Jelly Roll and those closest to him. The documentary aims to inspire others to make positive changes in their lives.
"Save Me" featuring Lainey Wilson is included on Jelly Roll's latest album, "WHITSITT CHAPEL." The album, released on June 2, contains 13 tracks, including the hit single "NEED A FAVOR" and previously released songs like "SHE" and "Unalive." The album also features collaborations with Brantley Gilbert, Struggle Jennings, and Yelawolf.
Currently, Jelly Roll is on his Backroad Baptism Tour, which includes 43 cities across the United States. The tour kicked off on July 28 and will conclude on October 14 in Tampa, Florida. Jelly Roll will also be supporting Eric Church on several dates of The Outsiders Revival Tour.
Overall, Jelly Roll and Lainey Wilson's collaborative version of "Save Me" is making waves in the country music industry. The song's powerful message, combined with the duo's exceptional vocals, has resonated with listeners and continues to climb the charts. Jelly Roll's documentary and album further showcase his talent and personal journey, making him a force to be reckoned with in the country music scene.
