Many know Raelyn Nelson through her activism, seen pictured with her aunt Amy Nelson, as the two of them represent their family at press conferences, protests, marches, offering support and energy to important causes, around the country. The young artist carries on that family’s tradition of speaking up and showing up. And she’s a talented singer/ songwriter/musician, proving she got those family genes, too.
Raelyn has launched a new website, and it’s a great way to get to know her band and her music at www.RaelynNelson.com.
She recorded ‘The Moon Song’, and Willie Nelson sings back-up with her and plays guitar.. You can hear the song on her website, and download it for only 99 cents here at Amazon.
