When you have a girl, who LOVES music, in can be hard to find AGE APPROPRIATE music for them to listen to! They don't want 'baby' music, but there are nowhere ready for Top 40 either!  

Add in wanting to keep their music tastes on the Christian spectrum, and you may be doing some head scratching! Especially as most of the bands aimed at teens have grown up and split up (Barlow Girls, Pure NRG, to name a couple)! 

I have a new band to introduce you to that can solve ALL your problem!

Landing in the space where One Direction meets TobyMac, 1 Girl Nation is an exciting blend of upbeat pop music, with lyrics that are totally focused on living life for God, even while you’re young. 1GN, as they’ve already been dubbed, stars Carmen, Kayli, Kelsey, Lauryn Taylor and Lindsey, five girls with a passion for telling their fans about Christ through their music. Their first single, “While We’re Young,” can be heard on radio stations across the country and their self-titled debut album is available now!

Check out their video 

This is a cd that you will not mind blasting in the car while transporting the kiddos around! Like listening to a Yancy cd, you might find yourself singing along more than the kids!

One of the highlights on the cd, per Miss Grace and I agreement, is In the Eyes, which is a MUST for all pre-teens and teens to listen to! It is a reminder that no one is perfect, nor should we TRY to be, that God thinks we ARE perfect, AS we are! I've forwarded it the Chapel Instructor for Miss Grace's school, as I think it is SO SO SO needed for the girls at her school to hear it!

Daddy's Girl is another that is sure to be played at numerous sweet 16s, and weddings in the upcoming years! I have to admit, I just about cried the first time I heard it!

I Girl Nation is the track that we as MOTHERS, really need to talk to our daughters about. The song is brutal and honest about girls cutting each other down instead of supporting one another, and standing TOGETHER, as a 1 girl nation! Think about if all the bullying and taunting and cliques could be stopped, what COULD these generations achieve TOGETHER?

Complete Track Listing:
While We're Young 
Live For You 
In the Eyes 
Count Your Rainbows 
Love Like Crazy (feat. Royal Tailor) 
Turn Around Invade 
Daddy's Girl 
1 Girl Nation

These girls are AMAZING singers, and the music is perfectly aimed at teens and pre-teens- making them WANT to listen! And if you can get kids to listen, the battle is won, as this cd is just so brilliant! The girls are currently on tour in Canada, but if they come South, I'll be trying to get Miss Grace to see them live!

Want to win your own copy of this great cd?
(it would be a GREAT stocking stuffer!)
