“CHRISTMAS WITH THE NELSONS” RADIO SPECIAL
Special Guest: GUNNAR NELSON
“MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges” helps to usher in the holiday season as show host Tom Lounges keeps an old American holiday tradition alive by presenting “CHRISTMAS WITH THE NELSONS“ which features new recordings and a new hit single from the twin sons of iconic rocker Rick Nelson — Gunnar & Matthew Nelson. Their new studio album, “THIS CHRISTMAS,” is spotlighted on this program which also features a live call in from GUNNAR NELSON.
MATTHEW & GUNNAR NELSON have achieved international success, with a double-Platinum album, multiple top 40 hits, including a No. 1 single, and sold-out concerts around the world. This season, the twin grandsons band leader Ozzy Nelson and Football great Tom Harmon are back on the national charts with the title track of their new album “THIS CHRISTMAS” (on Stone Canyon Records) resting the night of the program at #17 on the AC Radio chart and #6 on the holiday music chart. Proceeds from the single are being donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“THIS CHRISTMAS” is available online at iTunes, Amazon and in stores. More than just a collection of holiday songs, the album — produced by Matthew and Gunnar — affirms the power of their unique bond and Nelson family heritage. For more information: www.matthewandgunnarnelson.com.
