Jelly Roll Sings Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” For Inmates In His Old Cell Block

Jelly Roll continues his mission of giving back.  The singer returned to the prison where he previously served time to perform for the inmates.

He was joined by fellow country singers Brantley Gilbert and Struggle Jennings (step-grandson of Waylon.)

In a series of videos shared on TikTok, Jelly, Brantley Gilbert, and Struggle are seen visiting the inmates in Jelly Roll’s old cell block, and the second shows Jelly performing for the group.

This isn’t the first time the singer, whose real name is Jason DeFord, has given back.  At the end of 2022, he donated every single dollar from his sold-out show in Bridgestone Arena to the Juvenile Detention Center where he served time as an adolescent.
