Guests Jenny Gill and Gunnar & Matthew Nelson
This week we welcome guests Jenny Gill and Mathew & Gunnar Nelson.
First up is singer/songwriter, Jenny Gill. With her debut project, The House Sessions, Jenny unveils an autobiographical collection of songs that blend blues, Americana and Country to create a sound and style that is as unique as she is. Gill, of course, is country music royalty: Her father is Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill and her mother is Sweethearts of the Rodeo’s Janis Oliver. Her stepmother is Christian superstar Amy Grant, with whom she has toured as a back-up singer for the last six years. It can be both a blessing and a curse to have such a prestigious background.
Mathew & Gunnar Nelson
Then we visit with the Nelson Brothers, twins Mathew and Gunnar Nelson. They achieved success during the early 1990s with their double platinum debut album After the Rain, which featured the number-one hit (Can’t Live Without Your) Love and Affection. Matthew and Gunnar also continue to honor their father, performing under the name of Ricky Nelson Remembered. They are listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the only family to reach number one record status in three successive generations (beginning with grandparents Ozzie and Harriet Nelson).
