Country Song of the Week: 'Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die)'

By October 30, 2012

Follow me on:

No survey of 1990s country music is complete without a mention of Joe Diffie.

While the singer has come back into vogue thanks to Jason Aldean's song "1994" -- which pays tribute to Diffie in the chorus -- he's no mere novelty act.

In the era of Garth Brooks, Diffie split the difference between neo-traditionalism and New Country. A good example is the song "Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die)." 

As last requests go, it's not a bad one.
