Jelly Roll, who considers himself to be a hard worker, has praised the work ethic of his fellow country signer Lainey Wilson.

In an interview with Taste of Country‘s Evan Paul, Jelly Roll said, “First of all, let’s start with praising Lainey, man. I pride myself on being a really hard worker. This is what I say to people: I do the stuff that other people in this town won’t do, Lainey Wilson does the stuff that I won’t do. She is willing. She is working.”

Roll had collaborated with Wilson for an official remix of his song “Save Me”, which dropped on May 12, 2023, as the second single from his album Whitsitt Chapel (2023).

Roll and Wilson performed the song at the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards and later at the finale of season 21 of “American Idol.”

“Save Me” spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart in December. Wilson won Entertainer of the Year at the 2023 CMA Awards, and Roll took New Artist.

“When I seen her, I could tell she was a little frazzled. I said, ‘You okay?’” Roll recounts. “She’d just pulled up, she was running late. She was like, ‘Man, I had to wake up at 5 o’clock this morning to catch a flight, and had a layover at such and such for five hours. I leave here and I got a 4AM flight tomorrow to do a corporate show at three in the afternoon, then I gotta fly to another city to do Luke Combs.’”

“These were commercial flights,” Jelly Roll adds. “This girl was running on fumes. Her work ethic is next level.”
