Jelly Roll and his wife Bunnie are celebrating their sixth wedding anniversary!

On Wednesday (Aug. 31), the “Son Of A Sinner” singer took to social media to celebrate the couple’s big day with a heartfelt message for his bride. 

“6 YEARS AGO TODAY WE STUMBLED INTO COURT HOUSE DRUNK AND GOT MARRIED,” he recalled. “And looking back at what felt like the absolute wildest decision I ever made it ended up literally being the best decision I’ve made my entire life.”

He went on to pay tribute to Bunnie and thank her for the impact she has had on his life.  

“This woman has truly changed my life in every way possible,” he wrote. “She truly changed the lens in which I see life through. These last 6 years have been a testament of the growth two rebels can make when they bring the best out of each other and push each other to the next level. Thank you for coming into my life and calming the storm. Thank you for running wild and free with me.”

He then thanked her for being a great bonus mom to his daughter.

“Thank you for raising Bailee as is she was your own. Thank you for standing by me when the monsters attacked and fighting the demons with me. Thank you ram love. Thank you for smile and constantly being that same silly woman I fall in love with everyday. Thank you for stopping to dance with me any time any day anywhere. HAPPY Anniversary Beautiful.”

Bunnie, who is the host of The Dumb Blonde podcast, also shared a post on social media to commemorate the occasion. 

“6 years. We made it 6 fkn years Daddy,” Bunnie wrote. ”I kno to some that doesn’t seem long, but to us it speaks volumes. Two chaotic off the rail feral souls that collided in a smoky bar- downtown Vegas in 2015.”

Bunnie then recalled meeting Jelly Roll for the first time. 

“Fast forward to a newly single me in 2016 & J was asking me what my 5 year plan was completely annihilated from the booze filled night we had,” she continued. ”Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought we would have manifested everything we talked about that night.”

She praised Jelly Roll’s influence on her life.

“You ease the violence in my soul & make me a softer woman. You refocused my vision so I could become the best version of myself & partner for you,” Bunnie added. ”You gave me a family because the one I have is extremely toxic & broken. You are otherworldly – your soul is too pure for this planet yet still, somehow you’re mine & you choose me daily.”

As Bunnie continues to host her widely popular podcast, Jelly Roll is preparing to make his mark on Nashville with a massive headlining show at Bridgestone Arena on December 9. Proceeds from the event will benefit Impact Youth Outreach.

Jelly Roll’s latest single “Son Of A Sinner” is currently climbing the charts at Country radio and sits in the Top 20. 

Earlier this month, Jelly Roll celebrated being the No. 1 emerging artist on Billboard.

“Dreams come to those who chase them. The boy from Antioch is sitting at the top of the BILLBOARD emerging artist chart this week,” he wrote in disbelief.  ”This is all still unreal to me. Thank you all for changing my life. Dreams are only out of reach to those who believe they are out of reach. DREAM BIGGER!”

Jelly Roll recently wrapped the Son Of The Dirty South tour with Brantley Gilbert and will soon embark on the Planet Zero tour, serving as direct support for Shinedown. The tour will kick off on September 3 in Kansas City, Missouri and end on October 8 in Anaheim, California.
