It’s no secret that Jelly Roll is a successful country singer. But did you know he has another business venture?

The “Son Of A Sinner” singer is part of the Nashville food truck scene and has his own food truck called, “Rollin’ w/Jelly.” The food truck serves “everything from hot wings to jelly doughnuts,” he explained to Audacy’s Rob Stone and Holly Hutton during a November 2022 episode of their show, Rob + Holly.

“The Wildest Thing Ever

“It’s the wildest thing ever. You see it comin’,” Jelly Roll said at the time. “They do everything from hot wings to ‘Jelly Roll’ jelly doughnuts. They do ‘Jelly-ade,’ which is some really good lemonade. It’s that diabetic lemonade too. It’s that from-my-neighborhood lemonade and Kool-Aid, it’s the WHEW! It’s really good stuff,” he continued.”

In discussing more about his food truck venture with Stone and Hutton, the “Son Of A Sinner” singer explained that it was his friend Jerry G’s idea to bring to life. The pair launched the venture since they had both been in jail and had trouble finding employment elsewhere.

“[The food truck is] here in Nashville and it’s actually the coolest story ever and I never got to tell it. One of my best friends from my neighborhood that grew up with me, that’s been in and out of jail — we’ve been through it all together — Jerry G… He said, ‘What if I start a food truck?! And I was like, ‘I would love it!’”

“Of course we did it, and every other place in the world is like, ‘You got a felony? You can’t work here!’ And we’re like, ‘We’re only hiring felons!’ You know? They run the food truck and it comes out on tour with us some nights and it sets up in our old neighborhood and it’s just a really cool spot,” he shared.

“I say we, but Jerry does all of it, I’m so proud of them,” Jelly Roll added. “Jerry, if you knew him five years ago — I would’ve thought he died in prison. The fact that he’s figured out somehow how to manage an entire crew and food truck… he’s crushin’ it!”

Jelly Roll’s Musical Career Is Flourishing

In addition to the food truck, Jelly Roll is also busy with his flourishing music career.

The “Son Of A Sinner” singer recently teamed up with Tyler Farr on a duet called, “Country As Shit.” He also collaborated with Parmalee on a new song called, “Boots On Broadway,” which the group has teased as appearing on their upcoming album.

But probably the most special of all is an unreleased new track titled, “Kill A Man,” which the country singer wrote in honor of his wife, Bunnie XO. Jelly Roll posted a snippet of the work tape for “Kill A Man” on his TikTok account, revealing that he doesn’t write a lot of love songs.

I thought that night in Vegas / the drink I was drinkin’ would finally take me / I thought I wouldn’t make it / that my demons would find me with blue lights behind me / thought my time was up more than a time or two / the enemy begins with you / something ’bout you has always been dangerous / I should run, but here I stand / you’re the one thing Heaven can’t save me from / and I’m far past my last chance / I was bulletproof / but baby loving you could kill a man,Jelly Roll sings in the one-minute audio clip.

New Album, WHITSITT CHAPEL

The song precedes Jelly Roll’s highly anticipated new album, WHITSITT CHAPEL, which is set to drop on June 2.

The project, named after the church the Antioch native grew up attending, will feature 13 tracks, including his current single “NEED A FAVOR” and the previously released track, “SHE.”

“This album is about growth and gratitude happening in my life. I wanted to create a project that felt hopeful. I believe the worst feeling a person can have is feeling hopeless or worthless. This is therapeutic music. Real music for real people with real problems,” Jelly Roll shared in a statement.

Earlier this month, Jelly Roll released a brand-new collaboration with Yelawolf, titled “Unlive,” which will also appear on his forthcoming new album.

WHITSITT CHAPEL, which serves as Jelly Roll’s debut full-length country record via BMG/Stoney Creek Records, will also include three collaborations. Brantley Gilbert and Struggle Jennings joins Jelly Roll on “Behind Bars” and Yelawolf is featured on “Unlive,” while Lainey Wilson teamed up with the 38-year-old hitmaker to recreate his fan-favorite tune, “Save Me.”

Backroad Baptism Tour

Additionally, Jelly Roll will soon embark on his massive 44-date headlining arena tour, dubbed the Backroad Baptism Tour.

Hosted by Josh Adam Meyers, the trek kicks off on Friday, July 28 at Bank Plus Amphitheater in Southhaven, Mississippi. The Backroad Baptism will run through Saturday, October 14, where the trek will wrap up in Tampa, Florida at MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre.

“The Backroad Baptism Tour is a big one for me, y’all! I’m bringing my friends out on the road this summer, and I can’t wait to see every one of you mutherf***ers at a show,” Jelly Roll shared.

Ashley McBryde, Caitlynne Curtis, Chase Rice, Elle King, Merkules, Struggle Jennings, Three 6 Mafia, Yelawolf will serve as support on select dates of the tour.
