Jelly Roll: Save Me, a documentary chronicling the singer-songwriter’s journey of redemption and confronting his struggles with mental health and addiction as he rises to stardom, will begin streaming on May 30 only on Hulu.
The ABC News Studio documentary gives viewers an unfettered inside look as Jelly Roll prepares and performs for his devoted fans on the biggest tour date of his career, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena in his hometown. Featuring exclusive access, never-before-seen tour footage, and interviews with the musician and those closest to him, the documentary 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 38-year-old Nashville native became the story of the night at this year’s CMT Music Awards in April, beating out the biggest names in country to sweep the awards as a first-time nominee. Enjoying a meteoric rise to fame with his first country radio No. 1, two weeks at No. 1 on rock radio, and 25 consecutive weeks topping Billboard’s Emerging Artist chart—the most of any artist in the chart’s history—his debut country album Whitsitt Chapel drops on June 2.
