Stoney Creek Records/BMG singer/songwriter Jelly Roll made his national television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night (6/28) following his one-night-only pop up show at the legendary venue The Troubadour in West Hollywood on Monday, June 27th. The chart-topping, genre-defying star who recently topped the Billboard and Mediabase Rock chart with “Dead Man Walking” performed his current Top 30-and-climbing single at Country radio, “Son Of A Sinner,” as well as three additional songs for the Jimmy Kimmel Live! after show livestream. Watch the performance here.
The first artist to simultaneously top the two charts with his first song chart debut on each (Billboard), the Nashville native recently announced his first ever headlining arena date in December at his hometown venue in a front page story of the Tennessean.
After independently building his fanbase, Jelly Roll has garnered more than a billion streams and earned praise for the depth of his songwriting, with Billboard noting, “his music takes those raw, unreserved verses and melds elements of Country, Rock, and Hip-Hop into his own signature style” and American Songwriter adding, “with powerful tunes like ‘Son of a Sinner’ and ‘Sober’ it’s clear that when it comes to music, Jelly Roll’s heart is often right—singing with a profound amount of emotion and tact, the songs and their revealing lyrics soar to brilliantly uplifting heights, shining light onto some of life’s darkest circumstances.” His first No. 1, “Dead Man Walking,” has more than 10 million streams and counting, and his latest single, which was most added on Country Radio at its debut, “Son of a Sinner,” has already racked up 25 million on-demand streams. Averaging more than 200 shows a year and having released more than two dozen albums, Jelly Roll shares his hard truths and struggles directly and intimately with his dedicated fans, who hang on his every word, leading to millions of views with each video he posts. In addition to previously announced dates with Shinedown on tour late this summer, Jelly Roll will join forces with Brantley Gilbert for the Son of the Dirty South Summer Tour kicking off in Jacksonville, FL on June 30.
