Jelly Roll reflects on his life in Nashville Detention Centre

Jelly Roll has recently dished out details about his old detention centre in Rebel Country, which was premiered on June 10 at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Reflecting on his arguments with the law, Jelly was seen walking into the Metro-Davidson County Detention Facility in Nashville.

“At the age of 14 I started making a series of decisions that led to what I call the revolving door of the judicial system,” said the 39-year-old.

The Son of a Sinner crooner stated, “So, I would say from 14 to 24, I spent eight, eight and a half of those incarcerated. Come home for six months and go back to jail for a year.”

Jelly also showed the place he used to live in, saying, “This is the house. I never thought I’d lay down here [again].”

Later, the musician reflected on his life in Antioch, a neighbourhood in Nashville.

“For many years I looked back at my childhood and the only emotion I thought of was anger,” he remarked.

Jelly mentioned, “I'd be angry at the situation. The establishment. The lack of resources. Not just for us — everybody.”

“It’s crazy man. When I started to get my head on straight and started dreaming, I quit looking out these windows and seeing barbed wire. I started seeing success,” he added.

In another interview with Magazine, Jelly admitted he didn’t tour internationally because of his clashes with the law.

“I’m so excited [to perform outside the United States]. We’re figuring out the final pieces of some legal puzzles for me to get overseas,” said the singer.
