Jelly Roll Brings His Mom Backstage At A Show
Jelly Roll stepped up his “sweet guy” status even higher this week when he posted a few photos of himself with his mom when she joined him for a show recently in Lexington, Kentucky, where her boy sold-out the Rupp Arena. In a post on Instagram, Jelly shared photos of pushing his mom around in her wheelchair backstage at the show with friends.
He captioned the post to his almost two million followers, “One of the coolest experiences for me is when my mother makes it out for a show. I started writing songs because I saw how much she loved music and how much it helped her. I am grateful that she is able to see me perform at this level. She got to come see me sell out the legendary Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky- of course; she asked me to take her to Struggles dressing room to see him. She loves Struggle to death.”
