Proof that musical talent doesn't fall far from the Nelson family tree.  Raelyn Nelson, Willie Nelson's granddaughter has started her own musical journey with the Raelyn Nelson Band.  With the goal of making a name for herself, Raelyn has stepped out of her famous grandpa's shadow and sought out to create her own sound. The hybrid some critics call Country/ Garage Rock is a combination of Loretta Lynn meets Joan Jett. 

"I don't really have any desire to be a 'solo-artist'. Everyone in my family who plays music has always placed a lot of importance on band chemistry, on stage, off stage, and in the studio.  Our band can almost reach each other's minds.  Why would I mess with that? We try to keep it simple: Write songs we like, record them, make a video, then go out and play them for people. " - Raelyn Nelson
