Sandra Boynton first album – Frog Trouble (giveaway ends 10/5/13)


Sandra Boynton Frog Trouble

I’ve always enjoyed the illustrations from the best selling children’s author Sandra Boynton. I think the animals are adorable. I can’t help but smile when I see them. 🙂

Sandra can now add music to her resume. She’s just released her very first country album for children. It’s called Frog Trouble.

Grammy nominated and bestselling children’s author, songwriter and music producer, Sandra Boynton, presents her first Country album, Frog Trouble. The album features 12 original songs by Boynton, arranged and mixed with Michael Ford.

Boynton produced the tracks mostly in Nashville, with renowned session musicians and an All-Star roster. Each artist was hand-picked by Boynton for this retro sounding album, including Dwight Yoakam, Fountains of Wayne, Mark Lanegan, Kacey Musgraves, Ryan Adams, Ben Folds, Brad Paisley, Alison Krauss, Josh Turner, Darius Rucker, Linda Eder, and Falls Mountain Cowboys.

With composer Michael Ford, Boynton has written and produced five albums, three of which have been certified Gold. She also received a GRAMMY nomination for the Boynton/Ford album Philadelphia Chickens. Frog Trouble has tracks ranging from Country to Bluegrass to Rockabilly to Honkytonk to Blues. It’s truly an album for everyone or, as the cover says, “For ages one to older than dirt.”

I listened to the songs on the Official Site. They have 30 second samples for all of the songs featured on the album. I think children will like the song I’ve Got a Dog by Dwight Yoakam and Trucks by Mark Lanegan. Trucks is my favorite song from the album.

Check out the song More Frog Trouble (this is a listening video – not a music video).

1. I’ve Got a Dog – Dwight Yoakam

2. Trucks – Fountains of Wayne

3. Frog Trouble – Mark Lanegan

4. Heartache Song – Kacey Musgraves

5. When Pigs Fly – Ryan Adams
