Earlier this month, ABC News Studios announced Jelly Roll: Save Me, a documentary chronicling the journey of the multi-talented, genre-bending artist Jelly Roll, would be premiering on Hulu later this month.
The documentary will give us all an inside look at the artist’s life, from his struggles with mental health and addiction during his teenage years to his young adulthood and the time he spent incarcerated, to ultimately flipping the switch and becoming one of the top up-and-comers in the music business with his unique combination of country, rock, rap, and soul.
Jelly Roll, whose actual name is Jason DeFord, has garnered a cult-like following over the past decade, even before ultimately inking a major label deal with BBR Music Group, and this documentary is going to perfectly capture this journey.
The official trailer for Jelly Roll: Save Me officially dropped today, ahead of the documentary’s premiere on May 30th, a week from today.
The trailer kicks off with Jelly Roll saying:
“I came out of jail with a plan. I was going to put every piece of energy I had into music. It was like something just clicked right there.”
As the Tennessee native continues to discuss his drive to make it to the top, the trailer shows several clips of himself growing up, to playing packed out shows, and inspiring legions of fans along the way.
The trailer also features conversations with his wife, Bunnie XO, along with several others throughout the near two-minute long video.
