Celebration of Country

Saddling up 11 twangy tunes, Music for Little People's Celebration of Country rides in high style, with some of country's most notable names -- Faith Hill, Randy Travis, and the late, great Chet Atkins -- delivering songs that will likely make an impression on listeners of all sizes. Charlie Daniels opens up with a rip-roaring "Playin' in the Same Band," an upbeat primer on cooperation for budding musicians. Tracy Byrd continues the music motif with a kid-friendly song about the joy of dancing, "Get in Line." And while there's no shortage of "message" songs -- Little Texas' "Big Country" offers a Nashville power ballad update of "We Are the World," while Faith Hill's heartfelt "Before You Grow" reminds parents and kids to grab precious moments now -- the lighter songs work the best. Buoyant fun pervades Brenda Lee's version of "Grandma's Feather Bed," and so does Chet Atkins's sound effects-treated take on "I'm My Own Grandpaw." One of country's greatest novelty songs, "Grandpaw" is a comically complex tale of twisted genealogy, which may have some younger kids scratching their heads. The sing-along chorus, however, should smooth over any confusion.
