Less than a week after winning big at the People's Choice Country Awards, Nashville's own Jelly Roll took to the The Tonight Show on Tuesday evening (10/3).
Joining Jimmy Fallon as the musical guest alongside Taraji P. Henson and Geri Halliwell-Horner, Jelly performed his song 'Halfway to Hell', taken from his 2023 album, Whitsitt Chapel.
A bass heavy, rocky performance, the artist otherwise known as Jason Bradley DeFord and his band immediately descended into the depths to brew up a simmering, honky-tonk inflected performance of his album opener.
Jelly's delivery was rapid yet assured, the southern rock nature of the track coming to the forefront as Jelly comfortably charmed both the TV audience in attendance and those watching from home.
Bedecked in a sparkling watch and a 'Noah'-encrested mechanics shirt, Jelly owned the stage, repeatedly playing to the camera with a point of a finger while crutching onto the microphone stand with a cool certainty.
Following his appearance on The Tonight Show, Jelly headed straight to Charleston, WV for a headline show.
Making it onto the stage for a 9:50pm start time, five songs in Jelly promised the fans he'd make it up the lost time to deliver those in attendance a full set.
Posting after the show on X, Jelly stated; "I promised 5 songs into the set I would make it up to y’all - then paid the full fee to stay open late and rocked the whole set and some extra songs".
It's looking like a non-stop end to the year for the 'Need A Favour' singer. With five nominations to his name, he's certainly in contention for a big night at the 2023 CMA Awards on November 8, after having closed out his hugely popular Backroad Baptism Tour in Tampa, Florida on October 14.
