Listen to Tracy Lawrence and Lainey Wilson's Duet "Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die)" for HARDY's Joe Diffie Tribute 

In his homage to Joe Diffie, HIXTAPE VOL. 3: DIFFTAPE, HARDY enlisted the help of some of the biggest names in country music today. He negotiated to obtain the masters for Diffie's original vocal recordings with the estate of the late hitmaker.   

Then, he collaborated with musicians including Lainey Wilson, Luke Combs, Toby Keith, Reba McEntire, and others to rerecord 17 of his greatest hits. The end product is a compilation of performances that connects today's country music with the peak of the genre in the 1990s.  

Wilson collaborates with Tracy Lawrence on the album track "Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die)". That's the ideal illustration of what attracted so many listeners to Diffie's music  

and the reason so many of his tracks made it into the top ten of the country charts. The song addresses the difficult subject of dying and leaving a lasting legacy. It accomplishes this while retaining Diffie's lively, honky tonk attitude.  

For this song, Wilson and Lawrence are the ideal team to carry on Diffie's legacy. On the one hand, Lawrence had a number of successful songs in the 1990s and the early 2000s, including "Today's Lonely Fool," "Alibis," and "Time Marches On." Although it's not the most enjoyable music to listen to on the radio,   

Lawrence wrote and recorded some excellent classic country tunes. Wilson, on the other hand,  

approaches the microphone with a bit of attitude and has a great deal of fun and lively songs in addition to her more somber and reflective ones.  

Their partnership thus becomes another instance of bridging a gap that meets all the requirements.
