Inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2016, The Nelons have been one of Gospel music’s best-loved families for nearly five decades. The group has been nominated for three GRAMMY® Awards; received eight Dove Awards—including Bluegrass/Country/Roots Recorded Song of the Year in 2021 (“If God Pulls Back The Curtain”); 14 Singing News Fan Awards; a Silver Angel Award; a People’s Choice Silver Telly Award; and a New York Film Festival Award.

The Nelons have recorded more than 35 albums, amassing over 20 Top 5 Southern Gospel radio singles, including such classics as “We Shall Wear A Robe and Crown,” “Come Morning,” “O For A Thousand Tongues” and “Thanks.” They have frequently been featured on the best-selling Gaither Homecoming recordings and videos, and have performed on the Grand Ole Opry, among other historic venues.

The Nelons continue the rich tradition initiated by family patriarch Rex Nelon, father of Kelly Nelon Clark, who began his legendary career when he joined Gospel Music Hall of Fame members The LeFevres in 1957. The group eventually became known as The Rex Nelon Singers before changing their name to The Nelons in 1982. Through the decades, The Nelons’ polished harmonies and performances, and their anthology of timeless songs, have helped to expand the audience for Gospel music around the world.

A concert with The Nelons leaves you encouraged by the message of hope shared from their hearts, warmed by the love of family you feel from the stage, and inspired by the beauty, purity, and majesty of each lyric they sing.

The Nelons, along with their band members, combine the best of a variety of beloved genres, in a way that unifies every audience, bridging the generational gap of the young and old. Simply put, this is just great music!
