Who Is Country Music’s Biggest New Star, Jelly Roll?


Nashville-born rapper and now country music artist, Jelly Roll can be easily recognized for his unmistakable face tattoos and jolly smile, but he’s gotten recent attention for his hit song, “Son of a Sinner.” The song earned the artist accolades at the CMT Music Awards this year, which included: Male Video of the Year, Male Breakthrough Video of the Year, and Digital-First Performance of the Year. This summer, Jelly Roll released a new album titled Whitsitt Chapel which has sparked chatter about being relatable to people going through hard times. He commented on the essence of the album in an interview with Billboard where he said: “I’m still a little uncomfortable in my voice…because people could really hear my voice and pain — and I sing from a lifetime of hurt.” (American Songwriter)
