Rising country-rap star Jelly Roll is gearing up to pull back the curtain on his musical journey through his new documentary, "Jelly Roll: Save Me." Partnering with ABC News, the program will be available to stream on Hulu beginning May 30.
The documentary will chronicle the 38-year-old maverick's struggles with addiction and mental health that have plagued him throughout his life and been a major source of inspiration across his catalogue. It will also give fans an inside look into Jelly Roll's biggest tour date thus far, his 2022 hometown performance at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, while also featuring never-before-seen footage and interviews with the musician and those around him.
From being incarcerated as a teen and adult, Jelly Roll is now using the power of his platform to raise awareness and funds for at-risk youth across the country. As part of that effort, "Jelly Roll: Save Me" will also show how he balances life on tour with his philanthropic work, which includes visiting the juvenile detention facility he was incarcerated at to share his story and inspire change.
Over the last few months, Jelly Roll has enjoyed a quick rise to country fame with his debut country single, 'Son of a Sinner,' making its way to the top of the country charts earlier this year. Back in April, the Tennessee native also stole the show at the 2023 CMT Music Awards, walking away with three trophies as a first-time nominee.
With his ACM Awards debut on the horizon later this week, Jelly Roll's highly-anticipated, debut country album, Whitsitt Chapel, is set for release on June 2.
