Staff reports

MAYSVILLE, Ky. — Multi-Dove Award winning and Grammy-nominated recording artist The Nelons will be featured at 7 p.m. Friday during a performance at the historic Washington Opera House, 116 W. Second Street in Maysville.

The ministry of The Nelons was formed after family patriarch Rex Nelon had already enjoyed a spectacular 20-year career as a member of the legendary LeFevres. Throughout this distinguished career, hit songs have flowed their way in bunches. The Nelons, who were recently inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, have been singing hit songs, bridging the traditional sounds of Gospel music with contemporary influences, and inspiring listeners of all ages for decades. The group, which has enjoyed much success as a part of the prestigious Gaither Homecoming Tour and Video Series, continues to cross generational gaps, presenting rich harmonies that have been embraced by audiences from all walks of life. Most recently, the popular musical family earned the 2017 Gospel Music Association’s Dove Award for Bluegrass/Country/Roots Recorded Song of the Year for their hit release “When Grandpa Sang Amazing Grace.”

Joining the Nelons will be talented female vocalist Amber Nelon Thompson. Amber, who travels full-time with The Nelons, has established an exciting solo career with multiple releases. She was named the youngest Dove Award nominee in history by the Gospel Music Association.

This event with The Nelons and special guest Amber Nelon Thompson promises to be a night that will be enjoyed by Gospel music lovers of all ages.

“It will be a lot of fun,” says Kelly Nelon Clark. “Not only will we be singing the classics that have stood the test of time, we will also share many wonderful and interesting stories behind these timeless songs.”
