{Giveaway} 1 Girl Nation

I'm going to let you in on a confession that really may not be that much of a secret: I like pop music. Of course, then I feel old when I don't like the messages of many pop songs. If I don't want my kids to hear it {and when I say "hear it," I mean possibly pick up on any message that their little ears don't need to hear yet ...}, then I really don't listen to it either.

So when I heard about some pop music aimed at young girls that had a positive message, I was eager to hear it. My girl may only be 6 1/2, but she is quick to learn songs and repeat them. Cate was excited when I turned on the 1 Girl Nation CD in our mini van on the way to school recently. She danced in the back seat as she read the words from the CD cover and sang along.

After listening to the CD multiple times, Cate says she likes all the songs, but chooses "Love Like Crazy" as her favorite and "Daddy's Girl" as her "last favorite." She gets her ability to rank anything and everything from me, but I have no idea who taught her to dance.

So, why does she like them?

In her own words: "I like disco songs."

Yeah, I know. To my first-grade girl, pop music is disco music. I grin inside every time she says it, so I haven't really explained the true meaning of "disco." I guess they'll all be oldies by the time she's an adult anyway.

About 1 Girl Nation :: 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. The band stars Carmen, Kayli, Kelsey, Lauryn Taylor and Lindsey, who are five girls with a passion for telling their fans about Christ through their music. The CD's first single, "While We’re Young," can be heard on radio stations across the country and their self-titled debut album is available now! The primary audience is preteens, teens, and young adults, but, hey, parents can take it in too!)

You can keep up with 1 Girl Nation at the band's website, Facebook page, Twitter profile and YouTube page.

Anybody have a girl who would love hear this positive pop music? Well, somebody is going to win a copy of 1 Girl Nation's "While We're Young" CD. This giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian residents. A winner will be chosen randomly on Saturday, Nov. 30. Just leave a comment telling me some pop songs your kids like. And if you don't have kids or don't listen to pop music, just tell me something you do listen to.

UPDATED: Congratulations, Elizabeth Anne May! You and your girls will be able to listen to your own 1 Girl Nation CD soon. It'll arrive in the mail from FlyBy Promotions.

    Ooh! Taylor would love this (and I probably would too.) I wouldn't say any of my kids have any favorite pop songs, but Taylor does love to sing and will sing along to anything I have on the radio/computer. She does really like Toby Mac, Matt Redman's song We Are The Free, and Britt Nicole's song Gold.

    We're really into Britt Nicole's "Gold" around here too. :) We like Natalie Grant too.

  3. Coldplay's "Paradise" is a hit in our house...except it's usually "Piperdise."

    My girls like a variety of pop, but their fav right now is Jamie Grace. I'm sure they'd love this girl band too :)

    I think of you every time we listen to the Jamie Grace CD you sent earlier this year. :)
