Cameran Nelson / Bio

Cameran and his band are touring extensively and his new album “Happy To Beer” released in June 2013. This album includes the tracks “Thrown”, which reached #70 on the Texas Regional Radio Report, “Happy To Beer”, which remained on the Texas charts for 26 weeks and reached #19 on the TexNet50 music chart, “Reckless In Texas” which made the Texas Charts just one week after its late August release and climbed into the top 40 at #31, and the latest single “35 Runs Both Ways” which debuted on the Texas Regional Radio Report with the Trifecta at #66 and made it to #1 in only 13 weeks.

If you added all the miles Cameran has lived in Texas since being born in Haskell, Texas, to living south of Kingsville, East of Rockwall, west of Lubbock and now living in the hill country, Cameran is from 1,815 miles of Texas! Cameran, with his high-energy Texas sound and energetic live show, has shared the stage with acts such as Lee Brice, Roger Creager, Randy Rogers Band, Kevin Fowler, Aaron Watson, Jack Ingram, Cody Johnson, Josh Ward, Reckless Kelly, Gary P. Nunn, Mickey and The Motorcars, Bart Crow, Charlie Pride, Gene Watson, Rick Trevino, The Rankin Twins, Dustin Lynch and has shows this summer with Jason Eady, Granger Smith, Billy Currington, and Kyle Park. In early 2013, Cameran was nominated for 3 Texas Music Awards, Male Vocalist, Rising Star, and Record of the Year. This year 2014, Cameran was nominated for New Male Vocalist (TRRMA) and Record Of The Year “Happy To Beer” (Texas Music Academy) and won the Male Vocalist of the Year award (TMA).

“Getting on stage and playing is just that!” says Cameran about his show. “The work is over and we get to cut loose and have some fun!”

With a commanding yet natural stage presence and a voice full of gravelly emotion, he has the ability to keep a crowd pleasantly occupied; a trait no doubt instilled in him by his musical background. Cameran spent a few years selling merchandise for the late great Gary Stewart. While working for Gary, Cameran was able to see how the “King of Honky Tonk” kept a crowd entertained, and also learned how to play a few of Gary’s hits from Gary himself. At the age of thirteen, Cameran began playing bass in his dad’s country band and built on this foundation by furthering his education at South Plains College, where he studied voice and guitar.

Pulling from a deep well of life experiences, he writes songs that strike universal chords. He knows all too well about loss, after losing his best friend and guitar player in a car accident at the age of 17. Delivering a love song is as natural as the love for his wife and three children. He’s not afraid to get a little “wild and reckless” as well, as his single, “Reckless in Texas” can attest. “I’m so grateful to be able to do this. I love getting to share our show and songs with new audiences,” says Cameran.
