Jelly Roll Brings a Rousing Performance of ‘Liar’ to the 2024 ACM Awards

Jelly Roll made sure to make his appearance at Thursday night’s (May 16) 2024 ACM Awards count, when he treated audiences at Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas, to a brand new song.


Taking to the stage bathed in red light, Jelly performed his unreleased new song “Liar,” a rousing rock track in which the star calls out every vice that bring temptation his way. “Saying drink another whiskey/ Pop another pill,” Roll sang, dressed in an all-black leather ensemble. “Money makes you happy/ Heaven isn’t real.”

When it came to the song’s bombastic chorus, Roll got the crowd at the Ford Center singing along almost instantly. “You ain’t nothing but a liar/ Yeah I walk right out that fire,” he wailed. “Yeah you try to keep me down/ Try to put me underground/ I know we’re going higher.” Before he left the stage, the singer made sure to make the point of the song crystal clear, declaring, “The devil is a liar!”

Jelly Roll wasn’t only at the ceremony to debut his new song. The fast-rising star was nominated for his first ever trophies at the evening’s ceremony, scoring nominations in categories including entertainer of the year, male artist of the year, single of the year (for his track “Need a Favor”) and music event of the year (for his song “Save Me” with Lainey Wilson).

The “Liar” singer was also far from the only performer at Thursday’s event. The 2024 ACMs, which were hosted by country icon Reba McEntire and produced by Dick Clark Productions, boasted numbers from Lainey Wilson, Kelsea Ballerini, Noah Kahan, Kane Brown, Post Malone, Avril Lavigne and plenty of others.
