The trailer for the upcoming ABC News Studios-produced documentary "Jelly Roll: Save Me" has arrived.

The trailer, which debuted Tuesday on "Good Morning America," offers a first look at the documentary, which includes footage of the artist Jelly Roll performing on stage and fans sharing their life-changing testimonies about his music.

"They say we were too fat to be in the music business, my voice wasn't cool enough -- these were all mountains that we had to conquer," Jelly Roll remarks, candidly, in a scene.

"Jelly Roll: Save Me" will chronicle the Nashville native's journey from addiction, incarceration and mental health struggles to achieving music superstar status.

"The biggest demon in my life was my mental health," the musician shares in the teaser for the documentary.

"If I wasn't a musician, I'd be dead," he says.

The documentary will also spotlight Jelly Roll's philanthropic efforts and follow him on a visit to the juvenile detention facility where he was once detained.

"Jelly Roll: Save Me" premieres May 30 on Hulu.
