The “Son of a Sinner” star recently revealed the follow-up to his breakthrough album. The forthcoming 13-track release, named for the Whitsitt Chapel of his upbringing, will arrive June 2. It will include his previously released single “Need a Favor.”

“This album is about growth and gratitude happening in my life,” the artist explained. “I wanted to create a project that felt hopeful. I believe the worst feeling a person can have is feeling hopeless or worthless. This is therapeutic music. Real music for real people with real problems.”

On the heels of his album release, the country-rock artist will embark on his Backroad Baptism Tour, a 44-date trek that will see him headline arenas across the country.

Kicking off on July 28 in Southaven, Mississippi, the genre-defying artist will zig-zag across the U.S., making stops in dozens of major cities before wrapping up in Tampa, Florida, on October 14. Acts like Ashley McBryde, Caitlynne Curtis, Chase Rice, Elle King, Merkules, Struggle Jennings, Three 6 Mafia, Yelawolf, and Josh Adam Meyers will join him as support through the lengthy trek.

Before then, Jelly Roll is up for three nominations at the 2022 CMT Music Awards, airing live from Austin, Texas’ Moody Center on Sunday, April 2.
