Partners with Shatterproof for “she” Release to Raise Awareness on Addiction Crisis
Music Video Premieres December 2nd Following YouTube Rodeo Livestream
Multi-genre phenomenon Jelly Roll releases today the raw, powerful track “she” via Stoney Creek Records/BMG. The latest track of what he refers to as “therapeutic music” is an emotionally truthful ballad that gives a glimpse into the life of a person struggling with addiction as well as those who love them. Jelly Roll is unique in his ability to candidly acknowledge life’s trials and tribulations, as “she” tells the story of a woman amid her struggle with addiction. Listen now HERE.
For the release of “she,” Jelly has partnered with Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the addiction crisis and the devastation caused by the disease of addiction. Eleven people die every hour from a drug overdose. Jelly Roll’s song will increase awareness of addiction prevention, treatment and recovery resources provided by Shatterproof and help save lives.
Jelly Roll shares his hard truths and struggles directly and intimately with his dedicated fans, evident in the millions of views with each video he posts. Jelly Roll’s music video, featuring actress Danielle Macdonald, premieres December 2nd at 7:00pm EST, following his livestream on YouTube Rodeo at 6:30pm EST. Fans can also catch a glimpse of Jelly at his post-release party taking place on TikTok live December 6th at 6:00pm EST.
“‘she’ is about the struggle of addiction. ‘she’ is about talking about the elephant in the room and addressing head on the heroin and fentanyl epidemic that is sweeping the nation; the pharmaceutical pill problem that is sweeping the nation, and has been for a long time,” says Jelly Roll. “And I feel like it’s an artist’s responsibility to speak for those who sometimes can’t always speak for themselves.”
Jelly Roll releases the track as he prepares for his sold-out hometown headlining show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on December 9, 2022. It has been a breakthrough year for Jelly Roll, whose Gold certified single “Son of a Sinner” is currently Top 10 at Country Radio. Earlier this year, he sold out numerous venues including Colorado’s Red Rocks, made his Grand Ole Opry debut, topped the Billboard and Mediabase Rock charts for two weeks with his debut Rock single “Dead Man Walking” – his first No. 1 ever as an artist/songwriter – and has held the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart for 15 weeks.
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.”
