In a style that recalls his voice-overs on the TV series The Dukes of Hazzard, Waylon Jennings doesn't just sing these 11 original songs for kids, he narrates in between the songs, giving context and meaning. A man who appreciates the way children think and the things they go through as they grow up, Jennings, who calls himself "a big rascal singing about little rascals," writes from a child's point of view, remembering in "When I Get Big," for example, what it's like to dream of growing up to become president--ending the wars, protecting all the animals from harm--and how it feels to be a boy with too many sisters ("All of My Sisters Are Girls"). Several of the songs revolve around strikingly fresh ideas--a child's celebration of "Dirt," for starters--and Jennings isn't shy about rocking several to his trademark "thump-bump" beat. All in all, a different sort of children's record from the man who insists he's "a kid trapped in a grown-up body." --Alanna Nash

"After two years of regularly listening to this CD in the car on the way to eveerywhere it remains a favorite. I can only say that about Penner and Raffi. Everyone else has fallen by the wayside. Even I do not tire of these songs."
Great kids CD--especially for boys

"Here, Waylon shows that he understands how kids think better than most adults. You can ignore the EW comment that it is 'politically incorrect'. There's nothing racist or sexist or anything like that to worry about. They probably wrote that because this CD is more for boys than girls. This is a great CD for kids."

"How excited I was to find a Waylon for kids! We have a local celebration each year called Frontier Days, and I have dancers that perform. It has been a very long time since finding new music geared to kids for the Western Theme, and there are some delightful songs on this CD!"
