Biography
For Tj Nelson it's always been a country thang. Growing up in a small town in South Dakota (pop.250), he wore the grooves out of 45 rpm records by artists such as Haggard, Jones and Williams. This formed the foundation of his commitment to and love of traditional country music.

The seed took root. Tj bought his first guitar at age 11 and formed a band by the age of twelve. Although he continued to play on through his two year service in the U. S. Army and beyond, life, as it often does, took him in other directions. Newly discharged and starting a family, Tj moved back to South Dakota to focus on raising his son in a country environment.


The initial mix of the single "My Old Flame" debuted at #1 on three independant charts even before the CD was officially released. The album has recieved extensive airplay in Europe and in the U.S. It's been played on a California R&R station, yet was called "too country" by a C&W station in Flagstaff, Arizona.


Following the release of "IT'S A COUNTRY THANG", TJ has had the opportunity to share the stage with such legends as Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Louvin, Gene Watson, Jo-El Sonnier and others.

TJ is currently working on a new cd project with the boys at Bayou Recording in Nashville. The new cd will have 12 songs with one of the songs being a Gospel tune written by Wild Bill Emerson and a cover tune of the great Vern Gosdin, "IF YOU'RE GONNA DO ME WRONG, DO IT RIGHT"

Anticipation is growing from TJ Nelson fans for this project to be released by JUNE 2008.
