Jack's music on A Prairie Home Companion!
Singin' In Our Own Backyard Wins Parent's Choice Award
Jack's album Singin' In Our Own Backyard has just received a 2008 Parents' Choice Classic award, reserved for previous gold award winners whose vibrance and energy have stood the test of time. From the review:
[Jack's] heart-songs and wordplay...and irresistible acoustic rhythms are still country breeze fresh. And Pearson, a master strummer and fiddler, wrapped his songs in a message that resonates with even more relevance today: it's healthy and spirit-lifting for kids and adults, too, to take a break from the relentless noise and rush of the everyday just to think, make music, play and imagine.
- Lynne Heffley, Parents' Choice Foundation
