Did Your Favorite Artist Win The New Artist Of 2023 At The People’s Choice Country Awards?

The winner of the People’s Choice Country Award for The New Artist of 2023 is none other than…Jelly Roll!

Jelly Roll was not able to attend the People’s Choice Country Awards because he had a show in Cincinnati that night. His win in the New Artist category was also not announced on-air, but some of his other wins were!

Jelly Roll won the award for the Male Artist of 2023, The Song of 2023 for “Need a Favor,” and The Collaboration Song of the Year with Lainey Wilson for “Save Me.” He accepted the first trophy at his concert, with Elle King presenting it to him. His fans were thrilled on his behalf! We’re sure many of them voted for him to win the award.

Congratulations to Jelly Roll for being named the The New Artist of 2023 at the first People’s Choice Country Awards! Listen to his also- award-winning duet with Lainey Wilson below.
