Country News

Jelly Roll has revealed the name, date, and album cover of his new album. The album is called Whitsitt Chapel, and will be released June 2.

The album is titled after the church Jelly attended in his native Antioch, Tennessee ( a suburb of Nashville). Dubbed his debut full-length country project, the new work features 13 tracks, including his current single, “Need A Favor.”

Recently, Jelly Roll teased the announcement with images of Whitsitt Chapel’s outdoor sign featuring song lyrics from current and not-yet-released tracks on the album. Additional tracklist information will be announced at a later date.

Jelly Roll said in a statement, “This album is about growth and gratitude happening in my life. I wanted to create a project that felt hopeful. I believe the worst feeling a person can have is feeling hopeless or worthless. This is therapeutic music. Real music for real people with real problems.”

Earlier this week, Jelly Roll was named to CRS New Faces at the 2023 Country Radio Seminar and announced his upcoming 44-date “Backroad Baptism Tour.”
