Jelly Roll Opens Up About Working With Brantley Gilbert & Other Country Music Artists
While speaking to Entertainment Focus in June 2022, Jelly Roll spoke about working alongside fellow country music hitmaker Brantley Gilbert.
“Brantley called me and said, ‘Listen, dude, I know you are getting famous for this singing thing but I got a song that I want you to rap on.’” Jelly Roll recalled. “I was, like, ‘Yes sir, Mr. Brantley Gilbert, whatever you say!’”
Jelly Roll then shared that he and Gilbert were talking about doing an EP together and have been writing a few songs together. “I got a couple of tracks that, God willing, he’ll end up cutting for his next record and I think I have a couple that we wrote that might end up on my next record too. The more that happens, the more that I think we should just put out a joint project. In Hip-Hop, it’s no weird thing that two rappers would come together and put out a 6 song project as a one-off. Rock music, that happens too.”
Jelly Roll further spoke about teaming up with other country music artists in the future. “I would love to see an album featuring Jelly Roll, Ernest, HARDY and Morgan Wallen – like one of the old Outlaw projects from the 70s and 80s, you know? We’ve been to the golf course a few times together and we’re a hell of a foursome – I consider that my crew, but we need to get in a room – I told HARDY that just the other day.”
