‘Sober’ is an honest and raw confession of a flawed man owning up to his demons. Drawing from his own personal experiences, Jelly Roll touches on pain, the path to redemption and the vices that hurt and heal at the same time. Listen HERE.

‘Sober’ is the first taste of new music since Jelly Roll’s 2020 successful confessional, vulnerable expression of self-doubt, ‘Save Me‘ which was a turning point for Jelly Roll and laid the foundation for his next chapter of his musical journey. While remaining the therapeutic outlet fans have come to know from the former addict and drug dealer, ‘Save Me’ marked the first time he sang (and didn’t rap) on his songs, ushering a new wave musical growth for the multi-talent. Now certified Gold, with the video garnering more than 65 million YouTube views, ‘Save Me’ is Jelly Roll’s biggest song to date.

“I have so much new music to share with y’all but after sharing a snippet of ‘Sober’ on socials and seeing the response, I decided I had to listen to the people and drop this track first,”  said Jelly Roll. “The day this song was written, I got goosebumps from my feet to the back of my head. It was so cathartic to create— I feel like there is something truly special about this song and hope other people feel it too.”

Hailing from the Antioch neighbourhood of Nashville, on September 17th, Jelly Roll will play the city’s iconic Ryman Auditorium, which he sold out in minutes. The hometown show is one of more than a dozen shows on his Work In Progress 2021 tour that have sold out. The unique talent, has been flying under the radar, building a rabid legion of fans with his raw, rough-edge lyrics and “man of the people” charisma. Averaging more than 200 shows a year and having released more than two dozen albums, Jelly Roll shares his hard truths and struggles directly and intimately with his dedicated fans, who hang on his every word, leading to millions of views with each video he posts.
