Donny & Marie’s Nephew Nathan Osmond Scores On The Country Charts

By Radar Staff

Donny and Marie Osmond‘s nephew has hit a high note – quite literally – after topping the independent country music charts with his latest hit, and has spoken exclusively to him about his music and his famous family.

The musician has beaten his famous aunt and uncle who are only at number 35 on the very same chart!

But Nathan insists it’s all friendly competition and the brother/sister team are backing him all the way.

“We are a massively competitive family,” he tells “But that doesn’t mean they don’t want the best for me. They are my advisors and they have helped me achieve what I have today.”

However Nathan admits that when he decided he wanted to break into the country music scene, he didn’t tell any of his family for fear they would try to deter him.

“I headed off to Nashville and decided I wanted to give it a go,” said Nathan – whose video to the  hit ‘The Tailgate Song’ has had over 70,000 hits online. “But I didn’t tell anyone what I was doing because they are all very protective and would probably have tried to tell me not to for fear of rejection.”

But Nathan – whose dad, Alan, was a member of the Osmonds group – chose to live out his dream and it’s been a complete success.

“I’m absolutely thrilled beyond belief,” he said. “I literally couldn’t be happier. The fact that I can continue to hold the torch for the family is a blessing and I’m having an amazing time.”
