Fans of Idol were given a surprise promo of Jelly’s upcoming documentary, Jelly Roll: Save Me, which will be available to stream on Hulu starting May 30. This Tuesday (5/23), Good Morning America will reveal the official first look of the documentary’s trailer.
Featuring exclusive access, never-before-seen tour footage, and interviews with the musician and those closest to him, Jelly Roll: Save Me reveals a raw and unflinching artist, incarcerated as a teen and adult, now using the power of his platform to raise awareness and funds for at-risk youth across the country. Jelly Roll shares a behind-the-scenes look at how he balances life on tour with his philanthropic work, including visiting the juvenile detention facility where he was incarcerated multiple times to share his story and inspire positive change. Jelly Roll: Save Me is produced for Hulu by ABC News Studios.
A 3X CMT Award winner, Jelly has independently amassed more than 4 Billion career streams to date. He scored his first No. 1 on Country radio with his debut Country single “Son Of A Sinner” and earned a two-week Rock No. 1 that “cemented his rising mainstream stardom” (Tennessean) after dominating Billboard’s Emerging Artist Chart for a record-breaking 25 consecutive weeks – ultimately breaking the record of most weeks spent at No. 1. The multi-genre hitmaker also announced his upcoming 44-city Backroad Baptism Tour. Produced by Live Nation, the arena tour kicks off on Friday, July 28 at Bank Plus Amphitheater in Southaven, Mississippi before wrapping up in Tampa at MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater on Saturday, October 14th.
