Kids These Days

On Friday, Janne Henshaw and Al Goll and I participated in another Words and Music session at the Country Music Hall of Fame. This time we had three classes of 4th graders, and we presented 15 songs… the most we have ever written for one session.

We want to compliment all of the students and their teachers for a great batch of lyrics. When I have played some of the songs for musician friends of mine, they have remarked…”This was written by a 4th grader!?” As one said…” When I was in 4th grade I was playing with sticks in the mud, not concerned about the effects of segregation or the activities of Mother Theresa.”

I said ” I know… Kids these days”.

Here are the 15 songs . I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

    Hi Candace … I LOVE these songs!I know you two turned their words in to “music” … but kids have such heart … and their young souls have a lot to integrate.

    Blessings,
