Conceived and crafted by hit songwriter and producer Ross Copperman, BBR Music Group/BMG’s Homegrown Kids Country Volume 1 (out this December) presents Country in a fresh way – with kids singing a fun mix of current chart-toppers and longtime favorites, all in family-friendly style. Produced by Dana Anderson and David Wise, each track was professionally recorded with a hand-selected group of youth singers – plus Nashville’s world-class musicians and studios – highlighting the song’s essence in unexpected ways. With a positive message embedded throughout each song, Homegrown Kids Country Volume 1 is perfect for bringing families together and inspiring children to make their world a better place. Inspired by his own kids’ love of music, Copperman created this project out of a desire to provide Country music that kids will relate to and enjoy (as well as their parents). Copperman is one of the most prolific and influential songwriters working in Country today with more than a dozen Country No. 1 hits to his credit. He is also the reigning BMI Songwriter of the Year (2016 and 2017), the winner of two CMA Triple Play Awards in a single year and the producer of chart-topping hits for some of Country’s biggest stars.
Altogether, the wildly popular tracks on Homegrown Kids Country Volume 1 have accumulated sales of more than 9 million copies, raking in more than 1 billion digital streams and topping Country radio playlists nine times. With Country’s mainstream popularity on the rise, and digital streams of children’s music exploding in the last two years (up 66 percent for on-demand listening, and more than 1250 percent for programmed playlists), Homegrown Kids Country Volume 1 pairs the two in-demand genres in a way that provides a little bit of something for everyone.
