Rhonda Nelson, wife of Lead Singer/Bassist Wayne Nelson of Little River Band, is an author and motivational speaker.
Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Rhonda is a true lover of all types of music. That love led her to a Little River Band show in 1999 at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville where she met her husband, bassist and singer Wayne Nelson. This serendipitous meeting was the perfect next step in her life as they married a year later.
Rhonda wrote ""A Different Life"" to share her's and Wayne's life story and to share what it's like to be married to a member of an iconic band that is still touring heavily after 43 years. She shares some of their lives' funny moments, tragic moments and gives you an intimate peak behind the scenes.
Rhonda is not only an entrepreneur but a philanthropist that is extremely involved in supporting children's charities, cancer organizations, clean water campaigns and animal rescue.
At the age of 50, having been linked with the name of an internationally famous rock band and living with the misconceptions that can bring, Rhonda has become passionate about sharing her message "LOVE THE LIFE YOU LIVE". Her message of embracing middle age, being fearless in defining and achieving your own success and loving the life you create for yourself is what she shares when she's out on the road. www.rhondaraves.com
