Pictures: Farewell Angelina’s Andrea Young Marries Brad Nelson in Jamaica
Farewell Angelina's Andrea Young married boyfriend Brad Nelson earlier this month, and the pictures are stunning. The couple shared the first photos exclusively with Taste of Country. Jamaica looks like the perfect place to say, "I'll love you forever."
There to witness the March 2 nuptials were Young's Farewell Angelina bandmates, Nicole Witt, Ashley Gearing and Lisa Torres. The group posed for several photos together. Above you'll also see two pictures of the bride and groom, including one taken moments after the ceremony ended. Nelson is himself an artist and musician.
The classically trained Young joins Witt as vocalist and violin player for the 2017 Taste of Country RISERS. The group recently released their new Women & Wine EP, which features seven originals including the lead single title track. All four get a chance to stand out as lead vocalists, including Gearing, the newest member of the group. She's added a new energy, they agree.
"We never know what Ashley is going to say or do, in a really great way," Lisa Torres told Taste of Country earlier this year.
“Our first show," Witt adds, "two or three songs come out of the audience that we don’t know and she starts playing and we’re like ‘Oh, do you know that song?’ She’s like, 'No.'"
"Next thing I know," Torres continues, "I'm singing 'Pour Some Sugar on Me' a cappella."
Prior to joining Farewell Angelina Young toured with Lady Antebellum, Jerrod Niemann and more. The group have played across the country, including major festivals like Country Jam in Grand Junction, Colo., in 2017. In 2018 they played 75 concerts, including a tour with the Bacon Brothers. In fact, Kevin Bacon wrote the song "I Feel You" for their new EP.
Look for Farewell Angelina on their Women & Wine Tour this year, with dates across the U.S. and Europe planned through the summer.
