Jelly Roll And Bunnie’s ‘True American Love Story’
Jelly Roll took a moment to pay tribute to his wife, Bunnie XO, on Instagram and quoted Cody Johnson’s new song “The Painter,” which Cody recorded for his new Leather album as a tribute to his wife, Brandi.
Jelly posted a photo of himself and Bunnie on the CMA Red Carpet from last week (11/8) and wrote, “I can’t remember life before she came into the picture —— she took chances with every wall I build she saw a canvas” – Cody Johnson.”
He added, “We went from low-level drug dealing and an escort to walking red carpets and winning awards. A true American love story #TrueRomance @taylorehill.”
Many of Jelly’s over two million Instagram followers reacted to the sweet post. One fan wrote, “You both are amazing humans! So full of Love and Compassion for humanity. You ROCK ALWAYS!!” Another fan commented, “You both are great. Dreams can come true. Thank you, Jelly. I will never give up on my goals.” One more fan said, “That rearview mirror also lets you see who you have become.”

Jelly has been “living in the moment” after setting his phone aside a few weeks ago to concentrate on life and his family. He even stayed away from his phone during last week’s CMA Awards to live in the moment.
I asked him how he was taking care of himself lately backstage after he won the CMA’s New Artist of the Year award. He told me, “Oh dude, I’m doing better than I have ever done. I’m eating better, losing weight, drinking water, and not drinking as much, but when I drink, I still drink a lot. Tonight (11/8) will be one of those nights.”
He continued, “I’m feeling great, and you know, the cool thing is I was telling my wife just a second ago I haven’t touched my phone tonight at all. I have lived this moment, dude. I got to sit next to Zac Brown and my wife and Lainey Wilson and Post Malone. I soaked it all in. I don’t know what the phone said; I’m hearing good things. I hope it’s true.”
