The Big Kidz Band® featuring Skip Ewing



It's Indian Elephant Tea time! Skip Ewing, one of Nashville's most successful and talented singer/songwriters, makes his entrée into family music with an attention-grabbing concept: Take some of the most popular children's songs around and turn them upside down! On this Kindermusik Special Edition album from The Big Kidz Band™ featuring Skip Ewing, a children's classic like "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" runs headlong into Duke Ellington resulting in "The Itsy Bitsy Spider Took The "A" Train;" every kid's favorite farmer is transported in by helicopter for a funky version of "Old McDonald Had a Sampler;" the theme to the Andy Griffith Show is infectiously woven into a children's classic nonsense song to become "Mah Na Mah Na & A Side Of Aunt B's Grits;" and if you always thought that "Dueling Banjos" cried out for a tuba part, then this version is for you!


        With a unique twist at every turn, Skip's humorous and heartfelt  take on a variety of beloved standards shows that everything old is new again. On many of the tunes Skip's country roots are showing; on others a wide variety of styles are showcased with flawless, high-energy production. And if the name Skip Ewing sounds familiar, it may be because more than 250 of his songs have been recorded contributing to the sale of over 70 million albums. No less than a dozen of his nearly thirty hit singles have reached the top of the charts and the list of artists who have recorded his songs reads like a Who's Who of popular country music: Trisha Yearwood, Tim McGraw, Shania Twain, Kenny Chesney, Diamond Rio, Reba McEntire, George Strait, Willie Nelson, Clint Black, and the list goes on.
        Skip's personable vocals and innovative arrangements combined with the top notch musicianship of some of Nashville's most sought after players - “The Big Kidz Band” - have created the kind of children's record parents will enjoy so much they will try to wrestle it away from their young ones. Indian Elephant Tea is being served...
