Jelly Roll unveils ‘Whitsitt Chapel’ tracking listing

Debut project available June 2nd

Award-winning country phenomenon Jelly Roll performed two songs from his upcoming debut country project, Whitsitt Chapel, on the finale of American Idol this week before watching winner Iam Tongi’s emotional performance with James Blunt alongside Tongi’s mother. After taking the stage to perform his hit “Save Me” with Lainey Wilson, Jelly performed his current radio single, “Need A Favor” alongside former Idol contestant Oliver Steele.

Following the Idol finale, Jelly released Whitsitt Chapel’s 13 song track listing, revealing co-writers including Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde, Hardy, Jesse Frasure, Hillary Lindsey, Matt Jenkins, Jessie Jo Dillon, Austin Nivarel, Hunter Phelps, Michael Whitworth, producer Zach Crowell, and more.

Fans of Idol were given a surprise promo of Jelly’s upcoming documentary, Jelly Roll: Save Me, which will be available to stream on Hulu starting May 30th. Good Morning America revealed the official first look of the documentary’s trailer.

Featuring exclusive access, never-before-seen tour footage, and interviews with the musician and those closest to him, Jelly Roll: Save Me reveals a raw and unflinching artist, incarcerated as a teen and adult, now using the power of his platform to raise awareness and funds for at-risk youth across the country. Jelly Roll shares a behind-the-scenes look at how he balances life on tour with his philanthropic work, including visiting the juvenile detention facility where he was incarcerated multiple times to share his story and inspire positive change. The documentary is produced for Hulu by ABC News Studios.

A three-time CMT Award winner, Jelly has independently amassed more than four billion career streams to date. He scored his first No. 1 on country radio with his debut country single “Son Of A Sinner” and earned a two-week rock No. 1 after dominating Billboard’s Emerging Artist Chart for a record-breaking 25 consecutive weeks – ultimately breaking the record of most weeks spent at No. 1. The multi-genre hitmaker also announced his upcoming 44-city Backroad Baptism Tour. Produced by Live Nation, the arena tour kicks off on Friday, July 28th at Bank Plus Amphitheater in Southaven, Mississippi before wrapping up in Tampa at MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater on Saturday, October 14th.
