Watch here.

Recorded via Zoom in December of last year, this episode of Prine Time is a special one with guest Raelyn Nelson, granddaughter of Willie Nelson. 

The episode involves a myriad of stories about American music legends like Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Jeff Walker and “Papa” Willie. Nelson also talks about a song her band, the Raelyn Nelson Band, and their 2019 release “Whiskey and Weed.”

As far as how the band is doing these days, Nelson explains that there isn’t much to do other than play shows virtually and wait for this period to sort itself out. 

“Whenever you’re exposed to someone who has COVID you have to quarantine for a while, so it’s been hard to plan something because things keep happening,” Nelson explained. “That being said, we are doing that and I’ve been doing little acoustic stuff for my patrons on my Patreon pretty regularly, but it’s just not the same as the band. Fiddling around with the ukulele, which I love to do and it’s great, but it’s not the band. And that’s the art we like to make. That’s what we like to put out there, so I’m just trying to figure out the best way to do live shows.”
