Sandra Boynton Releasing Debut Country Album
Bestselling children's author, songwriter and music producer Sandra Boynton has announced the release of her first country music album, 'Frog Trouble.' The record features guest appearances from an impressive array of the biggest names in country music.
Boynton is best known as a humorist and children's author, but she's also released five albums with composer Michal Ford that she terms "renegade children's music." Three of them have gone Gold, and she's made a habit of working with an eclectic assortment of guest stars including Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme, Blues Traveler, Kevin Kline, Meryl Streep, Sha Na Na and many more. She received a Grammy nomination in 2003 for 'Philadelphia Chickens.'
'Frog Trouble' features appearances by Dwight Yoakam, Fountains of Wayne, Mark Lanegan, Kacey Musgraves, Ryan Adams, Ben Folds, Brad Paisley, Alison Krauss, Josh Turner, Darius Rucker, Linda Eder, and Falls Mountain Cowboys, supported by some of the finest players in Nashville. The tracks encompass a wide range of styles including country, bluegrass, rockabilly, honkytonk and blues.
According to a press release, "It's truly an album for everyone - or, as the cover says, 'For ages one to older than dirt.'"
'Frog Trouble' is slated for release on Sept. 3 via Warner Music Nashville.
