Ernest Tubb, The Texas Troubadour was a great influence on The Voice and in 1988, Vern paid homage to his hero by releasing Set 'Em Up Joe on the LP record Chiseled in Stone.

It was Vern Gosdin's second number one hit on the Billboard Country Charts after 1983's I Can Tell By The Way You Dance. Set Em Up Joe shot straight to No.1 and spent a total of fifteen weeks on the Top 40 charts. In 2010, proving it's timelessness, this great Country Music Classic was re-recorded by Jamey Johnson on his hit album, The Guitar Song.
