Jelly Roll Is Filled with Gratitude about His First Number One Song
Jelly Roll is celebrating “Son of a Sinner” becoming his first Number One country hit.
He shared on social media, “I’m so filled with gratitude as tears stream down my face while I type this. I currently have the #1 song on country radio.”
The singer shared that he never thought this would happen to “a guy that at every turn the first 25 years of his life he made the wrong decision.”
“Imagine everyone telling that guy he had no chance at country radio. “You’re too over weight, you have too many tattoos, they will never let another convicted criminal on country radio” – now imagine country radio proving everyone wrong and taking the chance on the song, the message and the man,” he wrote. “If you can imagine that, then you can understanding why I’m so filled with gratitude as tears stream down my face while I type this, I currently have the number 1 song on country radio.
The singer teamed up with Impact Youth Outreach recently to donate a recording studio to Davidson County Juvenile Detention Center in Nashville, where he was incarcerated during his youth and discovered his passion for music.
