Jelly Roll Calls Out Travis Tritt For Country Rap Diss: “Love You Travis But This Is WRONG”

Travis Tritt country music

We all know and love Travis Tritt as an absolute country music hitmaking machine back in the ’90s.

Of course, the man has been very vocal about his disdain for the direction modern day country music is going, and definitely falls more towards the country music purist side.

With that being said, he tweeted out:

“Always remember that when you mix country with rap, you get crap!”

Needless to say, he drew a wide variety of responses to the tweet, with plenty of traditional country purists giving Travis a hearty ol’ “AMEN,” and a number of more progressive country fans calling it a bad take.

And perhaps the most recent country rap artist to see a drastic rise in popularity over the past year is Jelly Roll.

Jelly just wrapped a tour with Koe Wetzel, performed at the Grand Ole Opry alongside Craig Morgan and was a recent guest on Tracy Lawrence’s podcast where he talked about growing up near Nashville and being raised on country music.

He wasn’t too pleased with Tritt’s statement, graciously calling him out for the take:

“This is not a good look for you Travis. Your a legend, don’t tweet on Ambien any more please sir.

Friendly reminder that Devil went to Georgia was not practically a rap song. So was Boy Named Sue by Johnny Cash. I could name so many more.

Love you Travis but this is WRONG.”

As I mentioned before, Jelly Roll made an appearance on Tracy Lawrence’s TL’s Road House podcast back in September, and discussed how he’s proud to be labeled as “different,” with his unique mix of both country and rap.

He said:

“Right before the ’90s explosion of what y’all did? What were they saying? ‘That’s not country music,’ you know when people are like ‘Well you’re not country music,’ I’m like ‘Thank you!'”

A conversation as old as time…

And check out that emotional Opry performance of “Almost Home,” a song that Jelly Roll credits for helping him get through prison:
