Lily Nelsen

At just 17-years-old, Lily Nelsen has already performed at some of Nashville's most popular venues, including Bridgestone Arena, The Listening Room and Opry Mills.  Influenced heavily by her singer-songwriter mother, Lily started playing guitar and drums when she was only seven-years-old.

An adamant animal lover, Lily and her family live in Hendersonville, Tennessee with their four dogs and a cat, Miss Jazzy Magic Mittens, to whom Lily credits country music legend Crystal Gayle for helping her name

When she isn't writing songs or performing, Lily is doing what most young women her age do: indulging in her Twitter and cute shoe addictions. She is also passionate about raising awareness for Kawasaki Disease and has had the honor of performing for a number of causes that are important to her, including Make-A-Wish and Wounded Warrior Project.
