Giveaway! Giveaway!

I have had a dilemma since dash-1 was born. Lullabies. I never found any that didn't make me want to pull my hair out and stick cotton in my ears. I'm not a real music fan, I prefer talk radio but try rocking your newborn to sleep to Rush Limbaugh and it doesn't really do much.

So I got a couple baby cd's. Crap, crap, crap. Really. Crap. So I had a friend who owns every cd known to man make me a compilation. As a result young dash-1 was a bit of a fan of Britney's slower melodies. But it was the best I could do and it seemed like more of an alternative then Rush.

That should set the stage for what a hard critic I am about this sort of stuff. But I recently was sent info on Hushabye Baby Music (yah for all those poop/vomit stories, someone noticed I'm a mom!) I listened to the cd's and they are amazing. They do instrumental covers of well known country songs. And its not just for country lovers, they've got The Rascal Flatt's, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, the classics like Johnny Cash (the boys really liked those), Willie Nelson, and I know I'm still leaving some out, go to their site (click here) to get more info on what cd's they have, something for everyone I'm sure of it.
I'm not a huge country fan, but I like the popular stuff and the classics, my mother is like me, but she was a Patsy Cline fan and I remember hearing her music growing up. So when I got her rendition cd I ripped it open and the boys and I danced to "Walkin After Midnight". Well swayed was more like it but still, you get the point.

Although I must admit my favorite turned out to be a true country classic, "Forever and Ever, Amen" by Randy Travis. Maybe I'm a bit more country then I thought.

I need to get me a pair of daisy dukes and we are having pulled pork for dinner one night this week.... but that's a side note.

Oh and just an additional FYI, they also do a line with rock albums (click here for info), so you could rock your little one to sleep to the sweet lullabies of AC/DC, the Beatles, and a lot more. Come on you know your dying to know how someone turned AC/DC into a lullaby. I was.

If only I could get them to do a lullaby line for talk radio. I'd be in heaven. And the kids would be so smart.

So that brings me to the giveaway. Cause I'm sure that's what got your attention. Leave a comment between now and Thursday night, oh say sixish in the pm, and you'll be entered to win a 4 CD pack of the Hushabye Baby Lullabyes. If you put a little post about his giveaway directing people this way, and really folks, I have low expectations, a couple sentences will do, then I'll enter your name twice.

If you don't have kids don't despair this would be a great baby gift. And who doesn't know someone who's having a baby. Come on most of us are military. We procreate with the best of them. I'm kidding.

So those of you who have little ones, have a little one on the way, or know of someone in either category enter away!

  1. you don't need to enter me into the giveaway, since one of mine has outgrown music at bedtime (just recently, too, I might add), and the other one has a lullaby CD that he likes just fine (50 All-Time Classic Lullabies CD which was a free gift from BRU, lol). But if you do enter me, and I do win (which I won't because you won't, lol), I'll give it to one of the 20 pregnant MOPS moms I know right now. Something in the water down here...seriously. Good thing I don't have a uterus anymore, or I'd probably be knocked up again. :-O

  2. oh, and if I'm up there visiting someday, and you're still there (or if you ever move closer to me down here), I'll bring my camera...you get a flag and gather the Dashes and their dad's coat...a hat maybe, too. We'll shoot away!

  3. Oh! Enter me! I have the symphonic version of hits by Matchbox Twenty... don't think it's meant for babies but it makes me happy.

    AC/DC huh? Good times. I think Army peoples do have serious procreation skills. Target's baby area here looks like a mosh pit on the weekends.

  4. Heck...I want to listen to them! Keenan doesn't listen to lullabyes anymore, but they still sound cool. So don't enter me, because I never win anyway. It does sound awesome though!

    By the way, if you enter me and I should win...I won't complain :)

  5. How cute! I actually saw this on itunes!

    Cmon- being country ain't that bad! I love country music and this is coming from your pop and rap living teen. I'm a changed woman due to country! haha.

  6. Don't enter me- I don't plan on having any little ones any time soon, (and I have to admit I am a fan of everything BUT country) but I just wanted you to know about the Rockabye Baby CDs that are available. (I know for sure they are on itunes) Every possible band you can think of, from the Doors to Metallica to Britney Spears is made into lullabye music. I'm definitely going to look into those when I have little ones!

  10. I have lullaby renditions of Coldplay and I love it! lol

    I don't really do the lullaby stuff anymore though. My kids just listen to regular Country with me and the hubs now.

  11. These sound awesome! And if I don't win I'm going to buy them because while I don't completely hate lullabies I'm totally ready to change things up a little bit (I only have one lullaby CD and we listen to it every night.)

  12. Very cool giveaway, I've never even thought about children's cd's but I'm sure they would drive me nuts too. I'll definitely pass this along.

  13. This intrigues me; I am not one for little kid's music, but I do love music. I usually end up just using some of my stuff. Now that Wyatt can repeat lyrics, however, I've had to start listening a little more carefully to them myself. This sounds like a cd we would actually really enjoy.

  14. Enter me please! I'm pregnant with my first one and am totally immersing myself in all things baby at this point!

  15. Oh this would be perfect for one of *R*'s buddies. He has a "soon to be baby-mamma" and he is a HUGE fan of country. Especially Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. Although to be honest, Willie is a bit of hippie for me. I mean, lay off the pot a bit and step back into reality, right?

    Okay, I've gone on too long again. Sorry!

  16. That sounds like an awesome CD!! I want one!! If I don't win, I think I will buy them anyway!

  17. Ooh - that sounds awesome! I want it!!

    Don't judge me, but I think want to listen to the CDs first (I knwo it's a tad tacky, but I can't help myself!!).

  18. Heh. The Captain loves music :)

    And your shower post cracked me up. I usually wait til the Captain is asleep before I attempt it. And by asleep, I mean down for the entire night, so sometimes I'm not getting in there til 2 AM.

  20. Oh I would love to give this gift to my best friend who just had her first baby after trying for 10 years, and surving a tornado while pregnant and losing her house, all while her husband was deployed...

  21. I didn't see whatever post was directing people here, but I would LOVE a chance to get in on that giveaway. I'm 12w4d preggo with my first, and I very much enjoy country music, so this has been my fave giveaway on any blog recently. Even if I don't win, I may have to go track them down anyway.

  22. You mean I can't rock my baby to sleep to talk radio? Dang, that was totally my plan. I even bought a radio to put in baby's room...

  24. GASP!
    I thought the 50's & 60's comp I did was not too bad :(
    I tried. It's hard to turn any type of music into a lullaby.
