We’re pleased to announce that Gunnar Nelson will be appearing at the Nashville Rock n Pod Expo on Saturday August 26th in Nashville, TN
Through all their various incarnations in more than a quarter century, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson have remained true to their legacy as members of the only musical family in history which has achieved chart-topping hits in three consecutive generations. The brothers of course- the grandsons of Ozzie and Harriet, who had big band hits in the ‘30s, and the twin sons of arguably first teen idol/founding father of rock and roll later turned country-rock pioneer Ricky Nelson.
It’s been a rewarding yet circuitous journey that has taken Gunnar and Matthew Nelson from blonde-haired MTV stars with their 1990 triple-platinum debut, After the Rain, which produced four charting singles, including the #1 “(I Can’t Live Without Your) Love and Affection” and #6 title track, along with “More Than Ever” (#14) and “Only Time Will Tell” (#28).
After nearly three decades, Gunnar and Matthew Nelson are still very much in the room. “Our voyage is nowhere near done,” says Gunnar. “We’ve still got a lot of work to do. We love music, making it, writing it, playing it, producing it…”
Look for a new album later this year that reflects that direction offering two decades’ worth of self-penned originals. “Now that we’ve identified the core of what we do and who we are, the songs are coming fast and furiously,” says Gunnar. “People will know exactly who we are. It’s really a breath of fresh air to come circle, and realize what we do is special. Music has always been the true north in my compass, my safe place. This next record will show everyone what we were put here to do… We’ve got a unity of vision… It’s all about the power of the song…. and family harmony.”
Gunnar will be on hand at the Nashville Rock n Pod Expo for a signing/meet & greet session as well as appearing on a Songwriters Panel and recording with some of the 25+ rock podcasts that will be recording on-site that day.
Meet Gunnar Nelson and a host of other rock musicians and personalities including current and former members of Tora Tora, Winger, ACCEPT, KISS, Tyketto, Joan Jett, and many more at the Nashville Rock n Pod Expo. Other features include a Producers Panel with Michael Wagener, Toby Wright, and Kevin Beamish and a Heavy Metal Parking Lot screening and reunion!
