Jelly Roll sat down with CMT and gave us his real deal tour essentials, and let me tell you, it’s great.
There is no bullsh**ting from this man, no ads for whatever tech products he’s paid to talk about. He gives us the real deal on what he cares about while living on the road.
And fresh off selling out Bridgestone Arena, his hometown arena in Nashville, I think the man is gonna be spending a whole lot more time on the road next year. I mean, when you can put 15,000 asses in the seat… you’ve built something special.
Needless to say, this has been a life-changing year for Jelly, and he’s just getting started.
Here is the lineup of Jelly Roll’s tour must-haves:
1. Pillow from Home
“Out of all ten of these things I’m gonna show you today, they’re all very important. But if I could only have one for the rest of my life on tour, you are seeing the most essential thing.”
Jelly Roll then shares how he experiences extreme nervousness before hitting the stage, and his good friend tequila helps take the edge off before it’s time to perform.
4. Shower Shoes
I was giggling during this essential’s explanation. It’s not something that I had thought of sharing a shower with your bus mates or shopping at truck stops on nights you might not be staying in a hotel.
“People don’t make fun of me in my shower shoes, I make fun of people going in there barefoot Cindy.”
6. Lifestyle Things
This one really made me laugh…the fact it got labeled “Lifestyle Things” makes it even funnier. A little tobacco paper used for everyone knows what.
7. Candle (specifically a smoke odor eliminator candle)
