Getting to Know: Nelson Little

Nelson Little, a local Manitoba country music singer and songwriter released his latest single, “High Road” this spring, which talks about struggles during COVID-19.

At eleven years old, Little was gifted his first guitar and took enough lessons to learn a few cords.

After experiencing a loss in his family after a tragic car accident at 17 years old, he connected to guitar and country music on a deeper level.

He draws songwriting inspiration from listing to classic country artists like Merle Haggard and George Jones, to name a few. As he was learning to write he would get inspiration from how he could take negative experiences and put a positive spin on them by making songs and music.

In May of 2022, Little released his latest single, “High Road.”

“High Road” is about the struggles of COVID-19 and how it affected society, especially children navigating school through a pandemic. This song started as an advice song to his son, who was struggling in school but became a song for everyone.

“Hold my head up, so I don’t fall.”
