Gunnar and Matthew Nelson

Hit Songwriters & Recording Artists

3/5/17  |  Hour 2

We get to hang out with the Nelson Brothers, twins Matthew 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).
