NW & Nashville Artists Make Music for Little Bit:
(Hold on to your Stetsons, this is BIG!!)
Several talented and accomplished country music artists, along with Buck Brannaman, internationally renowned horseman (The Horse Whisperer) and best-selling author (The Faraway Horses, Believe) have come together to create an inspirational compilation of songs, spoken word and poetry on a CD produced exclusively to benefit Little Bit.
On Horses’ Wings conveys a strong message about the relationship between horses and people and the life lessons we learn through developing that amazing partnership. At the same time, the music will lift your spirits and entertain you with beautiful songs of horses and a simpler, less complicated life.
Patti Hall, long-time Little Bit volunteer and supporting patron, is the Executive Producer and driving force on the CD project. Inspired by a song she heard, James Cain’s He’s Gonna Run, Patti engaged several country music friends from Nashville and the Northwest including Wylie & The Wild West, two time Grammy nominee Mary Ann Kennedy, platinum selling songwriter Templeton Thompson and XM Radio Outlaw Country number one hit artist Antsy McClain to contribute their songs. An accomplished recording artist herself, Patti received the 2007 Breakthrough Country Artist of the Year at the New Music Awards in Hollywood last November.
To pull this all together Patti called upon the horseman she respected the most, Buck Brannaman, to share his philosophy about horses and people, and how mutual respect, humility, kindness and patience can hold the key to peaceful and satisfying co-existence in all relationships.
To top it all off, another long-time Little Bit volunteer and supporting patron, Kerry Anderson, has donated her incredible artwork to the CD, and it is gorgeous! Buck Brannaman, the country music artists and Patti Hall have all donated their time and recording costs to this project. The Eclectic Horseman has donated all graphic production and all fulfillment and distribution costs.
This means that all proceeds of this CD will go directly to Little Bit. On Horses’ Wings will be released on November 15 and available through e-commerce by contacting http://www.littlebit.org.
There will also be On Horses’ Wings – Benefit CD copies available for sale at Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center. For more information on Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center: http://www.littlebit.org/.
And thanks to Patti & pals for their generous and heartfelt support of Little Bit.
