THE KID’S GONE COUNTRY II – FUN FOR ALL THE FAMILY
Award winning Country Singer, Amber Lawrence, is back with new music for kids and the kids at heart!!
In fact, her brand new kids album ‘The Kid’s Gone Country II – Fun for All the Family’ is an album that will have the whole family singing along!
The Kid’s Gone Country II is the third instalment in Amber’s catalogue of children’s music (The Kid’s Gone Country (which included the viral hit song ‘My Big Mack Truck’ and Aussie Aussie Christmas), and is an album full of fun, and catchy tunes about country life, animals, adventurous and sometimes mischievous children, inner beauty, fun in the sun, dirt, drought, and plenty more. This time around, Amber had her two year old son, Ike, to use as inspiration for many of the songs – including the outdoorsy ‘Ike’s Gone Hiking’ and ‘Ike’s Bike (Ride a Bike).
The first single to be released from the 18 Track Album, is an energetic country/punk song called ‘We Live in a Zoo’. How many times have your parents/carers said ‘this place is a zoo’? (in reference to the messy state of the house?), well Amber has turned that idea into an imaginative, crazy household where Giraffes, Penguins, Meerkats and Hippo’s live happily together under one roof. It’s cheeky and is a favourite amongst the kids who have already had a sneak peek listen of “The Kid’s Gone Country II’. A fun video accompanies this release.
The Kid’s Gone Country II is the perfect album to accompany this summer’s family road trips, country holidays, vacations by the beach and everyone’s favourite caravan park holiday.
