Raelyn Nelson and her rockin country garage rock band

The Raelyn Nelson Band performed last night at the High Watt, in Nashville, and I grabbed these cool photos they shared on Facebook.  You can follow Raelyn and the Band at their FaceBook Page, sample their music, see tour schedule, learn more about the band and see more cool photographs.

I didn’t even know I liked country garage rock, but as it turns out, I really do, if that’s what the Raelyn Nelson Band is playing.  The band has a new album out, and I am really enjoying listening to it.  It makes you feel good, like you walked into a Nashville bar and her band is playing, it’s intimate.    She tells such great stories, with all the humor and irreverency of her grandfather Willie and aunts Amy and Paula.  (“Get a Room (or get arrested)”.   My favorite is the sweet duet she sings with Willie, “The Moon Song”.  (You can hear a little of it in the video below.)  But the album rocks.

Like most of her family, Raelyn is very actively involved in animal rights issues, and frequently travels to DC, or around the country, with her aunt Amy Nelson, to represent their family and speak up on important issues.

Raelyn is cute and saucy and loaded with that wit, humor and talent that flows through that Nelson family.  (I told her she should be in movies, and I know I’m not the first one to say that.)   I admit I probably would never have heard of her if she weren’t Willie Nelson’s granddaughter, but I get introduced to a lot of great music in different ways, and Willie Nelson & Family & friends & fans have turned me on to some fantastic music, that I am grateful for it.   I’d go see Raelyn and her band, I’d bring some friends, I’ll buy her albums.  You should too!
