Jelly Roll has once again captured our hearts with his acts of kindness.
The “Need a Favor” superstar recently fulfilled the wish of one of his biggest fans in Tennessee, meeting with a grandmother named Sharon who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness.
“She had an aneurysm which caused early on-set dementia,” her daughter Melissa told local station News Channel 5. “She also has renal failure, and she has chosen not to do dialysis. It’s a lot. It’s a lot for her.”
Sharon is a huge fan of Jelly Roll and convinced Melissa and granddaughter Naveah to get matching bad apple tattoos in honor of the country star.
Melissa also drove her mother to the church Jelly Roll grew up attending, a location that is now featured on his 2023 Whitsitt Chapel album cover.
While at one of Jelly Roll’s toy drives, Melissa shared her mother’s situation with a crew member.
“I explained her situation and said her dying wish, her number one on her bucket list, was to meet Jelly Roll,” she said.
Ultimately, Sharon’s wish was granted, and she ended up meeting Jelly Roll backstage at one of his shows.
“He made me feel like I was so special. He told me I only looked 50,” Sharon said.
It’s been a big year for Jelly Roll’s soaring career, as he achieved two No. 1 Country Airplay hits with “Son of a Sinner” and “Need a Favor.”
The star is nominated for two Grammy Awards for the upcoming 2024 ceremony, including best new artist and best country duo/group performance for the remix of “Save Me” with Lainey Wilson.
