Ep 13 - Song 8: "Too Late to Stay (live solo acoustic version)" by Nate Nelson

"The Nate Nelson Acoustic Show started out as a solo gig playing for tips in 2013 and has evolved into an acoustic/electric duo that is growing in popularity and developing a following with a setlist of original songs and unique cover tunes. These two guys (Nate Nelson and Doug Cochran) do what they can to stay away from the mainstream and gravitate toward the B side tunes from country artists like Hank Williams Jr., David Allan Coe and Gary Allan and modern 'red dirt' country bands like Cross Canadian Ragweed and southern rock staples like Lynyrd Skynyrd and Marshall Tucker Band. These two have a way of switching gears mid-set and providing their own arrangements of more modern songs and offering their vision and songwriting talents with their lyrical weighted originals. 

"Nate, an Iowa boy originally, found his musical influence while living in Houston, Texas, but didn't take the leap of faith on stage until relocating (again) back to Des Moines in 2011. Nate's favorite bands include The Black Crowes, Widespread Panic and David Allan Coe, but he was ultimately inspired by the local Des Moines bands that provided the encouragement to "do it".

"Doug was born in Iowa as well. It's no surprise that he became a musician growing up in Fairfield. His truck drivin' life has made it's roots in Colorado, Arizona, Texas and in 2008 back here in Iowa. He played lead guitar in a few different bands throughout his life but never found the "right" fit... until now. Doug was heavily influenced by legendary guitarists like Joe Walsh and bands like Aerosmith, Steve Miller Band and, during his time In Texas, Cody Canada and Cross Candian Ragweed.

"These two first crossed paths on a freezing cold night in February 2014 while filling in at a gig for an ill mutual friend. After a couple of jam practices, they realized that what they had, deserved to be shared with the public.

"You won't hear too many Top 40 tunes out of these guys. What you will get is a unique vocal sound from Nate, mixed with the harmonies and lead guitar that Doug brings, from two humble guys that are just happy to be doing what they're doing and hope to entertain people at the same time."
