Listen To Naya Rivera’s Cory Monteith Tribute In Exclusive ‘Glee’ Track Here

Rivera's cover of The Band Perry's 'If I Die Young' will be featured during the tribute, airing on Thursday.

This week, “Glee” will say goodbye to Cory Monteith . During Thursday’s episode, titled “The Quarterback,” the cast will join together to mourn his character, Finn Hudson. And, as always, music will play a vital part in the story.

MTV News has an exclusive first listen of Naya Rivera’s (Santana) cover of the mournful country ballad, “If I Die Young,” originally recorded by The Band Perry. The Grammy-nominated, chart-topping song was written by the group’s leading lady, Kimberly Perry. It was featured on the band’s 2010 self-titled debut album and would go on to become a crossover hit for the trio of siblings.
