[b]Nelson[/b] was a child prodigy, born into a showbiz family, his father [b]Ozzie[/b] was a bandleader and his mother [b]Harriet[/b] was the singer. They had their own radio show & subsequent TV show, [b][i]The Adventures Of Harriet & Ozzie[/i][/b], in which [b]Nelson[/b] featured with his brother [b]David[/b]. [b]Nelson[/b] appeared in his first film aged 7.

A 'Teenage Idol' of the 1960's [b]Nelson[/b] gained 9 gold records by the age of 21. His single, [b]'Travelin' Man'[/b], was a huge #1 hit that year, selling over 2 million copies. The flip-side [b]"Hello, Mary Lou"[/b] went on to be his biggest hit ever, reaching #1 in 32 countries.

In April 1963, [b]Nelson[/b] married [b]Kristin Harmon[/b] and they had a daughter, [b]Tracy[/b], and 3 sons, [b]Gunner[/b], [b]Matthew[/b] (who formed the music duo, [b][a=Nelson (4)][/b]) and [b]Sam[/b]. They were later divorced. [b]Nelson[/b]'s career gained a high spot in 1972 with the release of [b]'Garden Party'[/b], which went gold and also won a [b]Grammy Award[/b] in 1986 for [b][i]Best Spoken Word Recording.[/i][/b]

On New Year's eve 1985, en route from Alabama to a gig in Dallas, [b]Nelson[/b]'s plane crash-landed near DeKalb, TX and burst into flames. Only the pilot & co-pilot escaped.
