Craig Morgan And Jelly Roll Team Up For Emotional Performance Of “Almost Home”

Rising star Jelly Roll recently fulfilled a lifelong dream when he was asked to sing at the Grand Ole Opry with country star Craig Morgan.

Jelly, who made his Grand Ole Opry debut last fall, recently returned to the historic stage to perform his current hits including Save Me,” and “Son Of A Sinner.”

Craig Morgan was also on the bill that night and his song “Almost Home” holds a special place in Jelly’s life.

“Shortly after I got out of jail, I sat right over there in row 7, and I remember thinking, ‘I want to make people feel the way [Craig Morgan] makes me feel right now,’” Jelly Roll reflected on watching Morgan sing “Almost Home” at the Opry  after having been released from jail. “This is a true testimony that God is real, and all things are possible.”

Prior to their performance, Craig told the audience, “If you haven’t seen it, you need to go back and pull up his first appearance…I happened to be out on the road somewhere and someone called me and said ‘Man you have got to see this Jelly Roll guy. He was just on the Grand Ole Opry and he don’t look like somebody who would be on the Grand Ole Opry, but he was talking about you.’”

Craig continued, “And so I went back and watched it and he was standing there talking about how when he was in jail and struggling how a particular song helped him get through it. And he mentioned the fact that he came to the Grand Ole Opry when he got out…and how I was there singing on the stage…..and it moved me. It moved me.  It just proves exactly what he said, that music can change lives. So before I do the song that he says changed his life, I would love it if we can give him a big round of applause and get him to come out and sing this out here with us.”

Craig also presented Jelly with a framed copy of signed “Almost Home” lyrics for the star to take home and frame “next to his Platinum and Multi-Platinum plaques.”
