Rockers Nancy and Ann Wilson of Heart Are Now Entertaining Kids!

I’ve always been a fan of the music of Heart. Ann and Nancy Wilson are extremely talented, as evidenced by the length and huge success of their musical careers. And now they’re reaching out to a new generation through a new CD and book!

Baby Guitars (CD)
By Nancy Wilson

Nancy Wilson’s Baby Guitars CD includes ten instrumental guitar songs that are absolutely beautiful. The description on the CD says “acoustic instrumentals for babies to fall asleep to,” but if you love instrumental guitar music, you’ll really enjoy the music on this disc (no baby required). Nancy is a mother of twin sons, like me, and she wrote these gorgeous melodies following her twins’ birth. You may not know that Nancy writes much more than just rock and roll songs! She has worked on the musical scores of many films, such as Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous, and Vanilla Sky. Two of the songs from this CD are featured on her Elizabethtown score soundtrack album, and the song “Sun on the Rug” was featured in P.S. I Love You. Nancy’s children even created the artwork for the CD! You can order Baby Guitars exclusively through either as a CD or a digital download.

Dog & Butterfly (Book)
By Ann & Nancy Wilson

And to prove even more how amazingly talented they are, the Wilson sisters teamed up to write and illustrate a children’s book! This is a wonderful new story based on their hit song, also called “Dog & Butterfly,” about a little dog that wants to become friends with a butterfly but doesn’t know how! Guided by the wisdom of his Mama dog, the puppy finally figures out how to befriend a butterfly. The words are illustrated by gorgeous, full-color illustrations by Ann and Nancy. Is there anything these ladies cannot do? With the purchase of this book, you can also download a brand-new version they’ve recorded of the “Dog & Butterfly” song. Please order Dog & Butterfly on Amazon today!

And while you and your kids are enjoying Baby Guitars and Dog & Butterfly, you can also look forward to a 14th album now being recorded by Heart! Ann and Nancy Wilson are still making remarkable music after 35 years, 21 top-40 hits and 30 million records sold. They definitely have a “heart” for music … and kids, too!
