A Kid’s View of “Dirt On My Boots” from Homegrown Kids Country Vol. 1

*Note from Staff Writer, Patti McClintic:  This brief review was written by my almost-9-year-old-granddaughter, Abigail.  She chose to review the song, “Dirt On My Boots, from the album Homegrown Kids Country Vol. 1 (Broken Bow Records), produced by Ross Copperman.  The only edit I made to her typing was to italicize the album name, otherwise, I left it as she handed it to me.  She will be entering 4th grade in August and received a Writing Award at the end of this school year.


From the song “Dirt on My Boots” in a children album, I love the song for two reasons.

My first reason that I loved that is because they had a lot of enthusiasm in their voices. I think they did because they were very excited to sing the song. That is my first reason of why I like this song.

My second reason is because it was done by children. You never hear children singing and playing guitar often. This my second reason I love the song.

This is my very first opinion writing on “Think Country” so I hope you like it. I really enjoyed this. Make sure to listen to “Dirt on My Boots” on the Homegrown Kids Country Vol. 1  childrens album.

I’m Patti. Rock music is my first love. My daughter, who was a country fan as a teenager, dragged me in when I'd drive her to school and we would have radio wars in the car. I'd have on my rock station and she would switch it to the country station. Guess who always won? As they say, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, so I did. patti@thinkcountrymusic.com First it was all modern country, but my parents were big Merle Haggard fans. I went along with them to a Merle Haggard/Phil Vassar show at the local fair and that was it. I was hooked on the Hag. Since that day, I've become a fan of bluegrass and I continue to explore all facets of the country genre. I guess you could say, I'm all in. When I'm not up to my neck in any kind of music, I enjoy genealogy, history, my granddaughters and my addiction, SongPop. I guess it could be worse, right? I'm a Buffalo, New York girl living in a Nashville, Tennessee world, and I'm livin' the dream with my husband, my dog and my two cats.
