Biography

The next time you hear somebody say, "They don't make country records like they used to," stop them.

It turns out that they do. They make them exactly like they did 30 years ago, full of real, live instrumental playing, unvarnished vocals and songs that stick to your ribs. Well, at least one person does. His name is Tom T. Hall.

Product Description

18 fun-filled sing-a-longs for kids (and grownups) of all ages.

Amazon.com

Tom T. Hall writes songs for children, he says, because they have a lot of the same interests, including the quest for simplicity. "One day I just found that we got along great. They understood me," he says. And in this compilation of songs from the '70s and '80s, Hall demonstrates his knowledge of the magic between children and animals and the thrill of taking a trip with the imagination, especially to Hall's own Fox Hollow farm, where such characters as Sneaky Snake, Randy Raccoon, and Ole Lonesome George, the basset hound, await. With the storytelling skills he gleaned as a child in the hills of Kentucky, Hall makes many of his songs into fables. "The Song of the One Legged Chicken," for example, teaches a valuable lesson about disability and difference. While other songs bring soothing comfort or merely raise a smile ("A mink wears a mink coat the whole year round"), and still others encourage play-acting, they all become treasures by the record's end. Packaged with a sing-along booklet. --Alanna Nash

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There has never been anybody quite like Tom T Hall, the country singer who was able to tell stories of everyday life within the limits of a song. The most famous song he wrote was Harper Valley PTA, a story about parents of schoolchildren, which was a huge hit for Jeannie C Riley.
Tom T Hall recorded two albums of songs for children. All the tracks from Songs of Fox Hollow (1974) plus seven of the eleven songs from Country songs for kids (1988) are to found on this CD, though it seems a little bit mean of the record company to leave out the four songs, as there is room for them. That said, I haven't heard the other four songs and the price is reasonable for the eighteen songs here.
Two of the songs - I love (the opening track) and I care - are classic songs that would not be out of place on any Tom T Hall album. I first came across them on a hits compilation of his, and didn't even think they would have first appeared on a children's album.
The remaining songs are definitely targeted at children - but there's a child in all of us. If you enjoy Tom's normal music, you will find that his style of singing suits the songs here. Many of them are inspired by animals to be found on a farm - snakes, foxes, dogs, birds, chickens and ducks - although one of the songs is about a raccoon.
This is an excellent album for children of all ages.

I was 4 years old when my mother bought me Tom T Hall's record, Songs from Fox Hollow, and I played that thing to death! Now, 25 years later I still love the songs that were on that album, which are all included on Country Songs for Children, as much as I did then. I still sing along to Sneaky Snake, and still wish I had a Baby Goat to talk to. I share this with all the children in my life!

I have an album with these same songs on it from Tom T. Hall that I've had since the 1970s. I played it for my own children and for other children when I watched them. Children seemed to LOVE it! So now, as a Grandma, I am going to order this in CD version for my grandchildren. They love to dance and Tom's songs are lively and fun to for both dancing and listening!

I just turned 31 and my mom used to play this for my sister and me when we were in like 1st grade. I had been thinking of the song "Sneaky Snake"....I had not remembered who had sung it. I did a search on "Sneaky Snake" and got here. Then I remembered all the other songs that I used to play over and over as a kid. I just bought the CD for my two children (boy 5 and girl 3.5). I just know they will love it as much as I did and still do. It has to be pretty good for my to remember it from like 20 something years ago.

While looking for "I Love" by Tom T. Hall, we found this CD at our local library. After listening to "I Love", we stumbled upon "Sneaky Snake". My 2 year old son LOVES it and can't get enough. Although I have to listen to it over and over, it still is a great song with plenty of other good songs on the CD. It's great for kids. It will be nice to actually own this instead of renewing it over & over again from the library.

This music is timeless. My husband and I both grew up listening to Tom T. Hall and our 5 month old loves him too. I think this is a must have for all parents.

I have been searching for this CD for a very long time and have not been able to find it in any stores that I have looked. My cousins and I grew up listening to these wonderful songs. Every time we would go to our grandparents house, we would beg them to put this album on. Then we would fight over the picture book. I would usually lose as I was the only girl. I absolutely love, 'I Care' and 'Sneaky Snake'. I can't wait to play this for my mother. I am sure it will even ignite some great memories for her also.

This music is a must for children 0-99. The songs available for preview were favorites of my own children over 30 years ago. I am thrilled to have this wonderful product still available. This is truly quality entertainment that I will use repeatedly in my own PreSchool classroom. My own grandchildren can also look forward to being entertained by Mr. Hall.
Tom T. Hall is really "tuned-in" to what can really make people of all ages be happy and not worry.
