Jelly Roll Surprises Texas Whataburger Employees With Huge Tip
Country music star Jelly Roll made some fast food workers in Dallas very happy last month. Video that has gone viral shows Jelly Roll at a Dallas-area Whataburger drive-through.
As the Dallas Morning News reports, Jelly Roll asks the drive-through worker how many employees were working that night. Since there were 5, Jelly Roll is seen and heard telling the employee that he was going to send him $1000 via the Cash App and that he needed to send the keep $200 for himself and send the other employees $200 each.

For those who aren't familiar with Jelly Roll, back in April he won three CMA awards according to the Dallas Morning News.
Jelly Roll, born Jason Bradley DeFord in 1984, started out in hip-hop before moving to rock and country. His new album, Whitsitt Chapel, came out June 2. His single “Need A Favor” spent nine weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at No. 31.
No stranger to the D-FW area, he was at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Frisco on May 11, performing a duet with Lainey Wilson and turning heads with his all-black ensemble on the red carpet. Before the ACM Awards, he performed May 8 at Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth in a concert honoring first responders, veterans, military members and Gold Star families. The show was broadcast starting Memorial Day weekend.
And besides all of his musical accolades, he appears to be a damn good guy and a great tipper.
