Jelly Roll Scores First #1 Country Hit
Jelly Roll has scored his first country No. 1 with his Gold-certified single, “Son of a Sinner.” The multi-genre phenomenon shared the news via his social media on Sunday (Jan 8th), reflecting on the feat.
“There is no greater reward for a singer and song writer in Nashville Tennessee than to have the #1 song on country radio. Now imagine that happening to a guy that grew up in this town… a guy that at every turn the first 25 years of his life he made the wrong decision. Imagine everyone telling that guy he had no chance at country radio. ‘You’re too over weight, you have too many tattoos, they will never let another convicted criminal on country radio’ – now imagine country radio proving everyone wrong and taking the chance on the song, the message and the man,” he says.
“Thank you to my fans who called and requested this song at their local radio station and celebrated like I did the first time they heard it played— I do this for y’all. Thank you Country Radio and all the DSPs for making Son of a Sinner my first number 1 at country radio. I vow to never let you down or forget the chance you gave me when everyone told you not to!“
