Willie Nelson’s Granddaughter, Raelyn Nelson brings the foot-stomping country single ‘Weed and Whiskey’

Emerging country artist and granddaughter of music icon, Willie Nelson, formed her ‘Country/Garage Rock’ sound in Nashville after working with Jonathan Bright; producer and veteran of the rock and punk scene to create a sound which is part Loretta Lynn, part Cheap Trick.

Raelyn Nelson has been singing since she can remember, having been raised on a steady diet of traditional country and gospel music. The gift of a guitar during her teenage years from her grandfather was the inspiration she needed to begin writing her own country and folk songs.

When they aren’t writing or recording, the Raelyn Nelson band are on the road taking their high energy live show to the people. Having shared the stage with such diverse musical acts as country superstar Tim McGraw, indie rock icons Drivin’ n Cryin’, legendary punk band Descendents, and supergroup Hard Working Americans, Raelyn and her band are proving you don’t have to fit neatly into any particular genre.

The newest single ‘Weed and Whiskey’ is the first release from the upcoming album out later this year.
