Music is a big deal for my family. My husband plays guitar, I sing (a little!) and my daughters both love to sing. My youngest, Avery, aspires to be a musician someday. As you can imagine, we're always listening to something, singing something, or playing something.
One of the things I've noticed, as my girls are almost 9 and 10, is that most of the music that appeals to tweens on the radio these days is about boys and first kisses. As a christian mom who wants her daughters to wait for the man God has chosen for her, and to not be boy crazy, this bothers me. I'll admit, the music is catchy and fun to listen to. I don't mind the music, I just don't want that to be the source of their outlet when they start dealing with feelings and boys. Let's face it, our girls won't always believe that boys have cooties. Anyway, all of these feelings have recently prompted me to find some new-to-us musicians. I found a few that fit my girls preference and music style and I wanted to share them with you.
So click away and have a listen...
