Read what Raelyn had to say about the single, and the video collaboration of her and bandmate Jonathan Bright.:
“The song came about when I was watching a tv show and got inspired by the story line of a girl getting her three older brothers to track down her unfaithful boyfriend. JB and I got together and wrote it and we were trying to come up with a video concept that we could do on our own. It was DIY in every sense, and we shot it all with one gopro camera. The “band side” was done with a tripod, some cheap workshop lights and a clear shower curtain as a light “diffuser”. The other side was just JB running around with the gopro strapped to his head. Then with some tips from friends,YouTube tutorials, and editing software we managed to pull it off. And we came in right on budget! Which was zero….
As far as part of a larger project, I think we’ve decided this year to skip the traditional “cd release” and just release a single every month or so, with a video and new tshirt to go along with it. We have the songs, but it makes more sense to us to release them as singles and have something new to offer each month, instead of beating a record to death for a year. Hopefully, with help from people like you, we can pull THAT off too!”

Raelyn, growing up in a family so synonymous with country music, was there a point where you wanted to rebel?
Nelson: No. It’s just always been around, and that’s just what was and what is. I love it. Old country just feeds my soul.
Raelyn, do you have conversations with Willie about how to survive in the industry here?
Nelson: He doesn’t not like Nashville, but he got out of here because it wouldn’t let him do what he wanted to do and let him be him. So that’s what he told me when we were sitting around on the bus. He said, “Keep doing this. Keep going, keep putting your music out yourself.” He’s kind of against people taking his money for his songs, you know?
If you could score a major-label deal, would you want it?
Nelson: I don’t really aspire to get a label deal — my grandpa said, “Don’t give away your music, just put it out on your own,” so that’s what I’m going to do. I’m not saying never. But now, it’s not the one thing on my mind.
Well, speaking of other people’s songs, what did you listen to growing up?
Nelson: Papa Willie, Loretta, and Patsy [Cline] and Waylon [Jennings].
Country’s New Generation

But just because their music may touch more on Tammy Wynette than Tim McGraw, it doesn’t mean this trio is always content with being plagued by words like “throwback,” “vintage” or “whiskey-soaked,” either. Though their music can be called traditional, they certainly have no designs on simply recreating the past. (more…)
“Marty Shine” is what many of his friends call him. He’s the owner of the Moonshine Sauce Companywho through a series of events over the last year or so has gone from slaving over a hot barbecue pit to playing festival promoter at this weekend’s Outlaw Fest at the Edgehill Farm in Oakland, KY.
Independent-minded artists and fans are already making their way to the inaugural gathering, looking to take in music from headliners like Billy Joe Shaver and The Steeldrivers, and music and stories from 2nd and 3rd generation Outlaws like Waylon Jennings’ son Terry Jennings, his grandson Whey Jennings, and Willie Nelson’s granddaughter Raelyn Nelson. Add on top that legendary songwriters like Billie Gant, up-and-coming stars like the Dallas Moore Band and Josh Morningstar, well-known Texas radio DJ “Big G” Gordon Ames, and Outlaw Fest has a little something of everything from the Outlaw country world.
Raelyn Nelson and her band kicked off Farm Aid 2014, with a rocking rendition of Joan Jett’s, ‘Bad Reputation’. She was joined by aunt Amy Nelson, on the Moon Song, which she recorded for her new album, joined by her grandfather, Willie Nelson (listen to song, below). Raelyn is daughter of Billy Nelson, who passed when Raelyn was young.
Willie Nelson greets his granddaughter, and introduces her set (her first at Farm Aid) to the crowd.
