2014 was a big year for Canadian-New Zealand country singer Tami Neilson.

She released an album, toured with the Topp Twins, won the Silver Scroll for songwriting, and had her second child. The Silver Scroll was a shared win with Tami's brother Jay.

The Weekend thought it was about time to hear from him, as well as his and Tami's parents Ron and Betty, who all toured together in the Neilson Family band from when the children were young.
