Steeped in heritage, the compelling story of his evolution and tutelage in the country music scene reads just like Hollywood fiction. He credits Charlie Louvin (The Louvin Brothers, Grand Ole Opry) as someone who ‘showed him the ropes’ as a younger musician, steadily and consistently performing at clubs, concerts and rodeo dances throughout the US southern states. There is simply no room to doubt his large and loyal base of followers and fans, to whom he is whole-heartedly dedicated. TJ’s legacy influences include country legends Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings, Allan Jackson  and Merle Haggard.
 

From the heartland of country and western music, seasoned artist TJ Nelson is following the success of his award-winning 2005 breakthrough album ‘It’s a Country Thang’ with a new EP and an exciting vision to share his unique blend of western swing, southern rock and traditional country with an international audience. As a mark of his passion, charisma and patriotism, ‘United We Stand’ (the title track of his new EP) is a timely call for unity and pride in his beloved America, grappling at present with social and political divisions. He has generously pledged to donate a portion of profits from the sales of ‘United We Stand’ to a not-for-profit foundation for training dogs to assist returned U.S. military services personnel.

 

After signing with Irish record label Long Shadow Records in late-2016, TJ hit the illustrious Junction Recording Studios in Nashville – under the experienced and steady direction of John Sturdivant Jr. (the grandson of country music legend Kitty Wells) – to record new material. Tj is managed by SGU Promotions and Management and signed with White Lion Audio in 2019.

TJ was born and raised in South Dakota, but now lives in Lafayette, Louisiana. Aside from music, he has a background as an automotive mechanic and wide-load/hazardous materials transporter. For the upcoming tour, he humorously quipped, ‘…well, if the tour bus breaks down, at least I’ll be able to fix it.’
