As you know, Jelly Roll has so many things to be thankful for this holiday season and, he doesn’t fail to recognize all he has to be thankful for. Recently he spoke out about it all.

He recently won New Artist of the Year at the CMA Awards and was nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards. Jelly has mentioned he is eating better, losing weight, drinking plenty of water, and has slowed down on his drinking, but, he still drinks.

He then laughed and stated, “When I drink, I still drink a lot, but, I’m doing better than I’ve ever done,” indicating he has so much to celebrate.

How He Celebrated

Jelly wanted to give back to his community in his hometown by starting a toy drive. He wants his toy drive to become the largest one in Nashville’s history. He stated” I grew up here, and I really take a lot of pride in that. And my spirit is always to give back. Who would I be to be so blessed and not turn around and try to be a blessing to others?” Fans love seeing this side of him.

Idea For The Toy Drive

The idea for the toy drive stemmed from his teenage daughter, Bailee Ann. She came up with the toy drive on her own on a small scale with her aunt four or five years ago in White House, Tennessee. The toy drive was named Buddy’s Toy Drive in honor of her late grandfather, Jelly Roll’s father. When Jelly’s career took off, he decided he wanted to give Buddy’s Toy Drive a larger platform. Hasbro, Walmart, The Nashville Fire Department, the Nashville Predators, and many more joined the cause.

Meeting With The Mayor

He stated” The mayor met me in a Walmart parking lot in Antioch, Tennessee.” he confessed, “Dude, if you ever told me that the county commissioner… and the mayor would be coming to see me, I’d have been petrified. I’d have thought, ‘God what law did I break?’ So, we’ve already raised a lot go toys.”

Jelly Roll has planned to pledge $100,000 of his own money to the toy drive to help it achieve the biggest toy drive in Nashville’s history. This is huge and fans are loving it.

Jelly Says He Is Happy To Help

He said “I am I matured out of the self-acquitted questionable man I was in my 20’s. At nearly 40, Jelly Roll tears up when he thinks about his great success story and the significant role music plays in his mental health.”

Why He Says He Is Lucky

He said, luckily for him, country music casts a wider variety than ever before. He briefly talked about the success of Lainey Wilson, and the amazing skill and talent of Kelsea Ballerina, Ashley McBryde, and Zach Bryan. Plus, the huge chance that country music took on him.

“It’s been one of the greatest stories ever told,” Jelly said. “An almost 40-year-old man won new artist of the year after releasing 300 songs in his career.”

Additionally, he said, “It is easy to love and be loved because I love people.” He shows that he has such a sweet and caring side all the time.

“I hated people forever, hated life, blamed everybody but myself, I’m in an era where I just want to love people and be loved and it feels…great. God is just getting started with me, that’s for sure.”
