In 2022, Jason DeFord revisited the church his daughter frequented. Despite scoring a hit with "Son of a Sinner," he struggled to produce new material. Yet, leaving the church triggered a memory of his baptism, sparking a realization: "This is my coming-of-age record," he told Apple Music. Born in 1984 in Nashville, DeFord, known as Jelly Roll, had a turbulent past detailed in his music. Over time, he embraced honesty, reflecting on life's complexities without judgment. His journey mirrors classic country artists, balancing highs and lows, ultimately finding solace and acceptance.
