He continued: “Whenever I’ve needed a piano player, I’ve had Sister Bobbie right there. … Whenever our band plays, Sister Bobbie is the best musician on the stage.”

After five decades of playing together and eight and a half of teaming up at home, the sibling played their last gig together at the Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels, Texas on October, 9.

A year and a half ago, the Nelsons released a memoir about their connection, “Me and Sister Bobbie: True Tales of the Family Band”, and promoted it in interviews.

“My little sister was always on the piano doing great music,” he recalled on the “Today” show in November 2020.

He added: “I would sit there on the piano stool beside her and try to figure out what the hell she was doing. … Sister Bobbie is 10 times a better musician than I am,” he said. When she demurred, he added, “I’m a little better con man, I think.”
