Jelly Roll & Lainey Wilson Recently United For A Duet At The ACM Awards...And No One Knew It Was Happening

Jelly Roll and Lainey Wilson are two of the biggest names in country music at the moment. Jelly Roll won three awards at the CMT Music Awards in April, and Lainey won four trophies at the ACM Awards on May 11.

Both singers performed during the ACM Awards…and they actually performed together! But their duet was not announced in advance, so viewers were surprised when Lainey joined Jelly Roll on stage.


The pair sang Jelly Roll’s “Save Me.” After the song ended, Lainey delivered a solo performance of her own song, “Grease.”

Following their performance, Jelly Roll revealed that he and Lainey recorded “Save Me.” Their duet version of the song is now available. It will be featured as a track on Jelly Roll’s upcoming album, WHITSITT CHAPEL.
