Jelly Roll Tears Up After Grammy Nomination

Following his first-ever Grammy nominations, Jelly Roll was overwhelmed with emotion.

After learning about his RIAA noms for best new artist and best country duo/group performance for the remix of “Save Me” with Lainey Wilson, on Friday (11.10), the country music superstar took to social media and shared a heartfelt and tearful video on social media.

While weeping in an Instagram clip, the musician (born Jason Bradley DeFord) said “I’m not sure if I should post this or not because I’m so emotional, but the greatest honor an artist can ever hear is that they’ve been nominated for a Grammy.” “I got to hear that this morning.”

The larger-than-life country star who took home new artist of the year award during last week’s (11.08) 2023 CMA Awards, recorded his video seven times, adding “I haven’t cried like this since my daddy died.” “I love you all, man, so f—ing much.”

Along with the video, Jelly Roll captioned that he was “embarrassed” to share the clip but that his wife, Bunnie XO, encouraged the post that reflected the “honesty and rawness” he’s known for. “I’ll post a more complete thought about this when I get my head together, he wrote. “I just never would’ve imagined.”

Following his intimate post, Wynonna Judd, Wiz Khalifa, Miranda Lambert, Lainey Wilson, Flavor Flav, Tamar Braxton, Carly Pearce and others added congratulatory messages in the comments section.

“YOU DESERVE IT ALL!!!!!!! We are so happy for you!!!!!!! Congratulations my sweet friend,” wrote Judd, who performed her hit “Need a Favor” with the rapper-turned-country singer at the 2023 CMAs.

“Jelly, I love ya. Your energy is contagious. See ya at the GRAMMYs,” Wilson added.
