The “Old Town Road” rapper took to Twitter to announce his new children’s book, “C Is for Country.” According to his tweet, it’s due out January 5, 2021 and is a product of Random House Publishing.
“[I]’m dropping the best kids book of all time soon!,” he wrote. “C IS FOR COUNTRY, out January 5, 2021…I can’t wait to share it with you all. You can pre-order it right here.
Illustrations were done by Theodore Taylor III, who also worked on the art for the poetry collection “Woke.” The book is for children between the ages of 3 and 7.
The brief write up on Random House’s site provides a bit more clarity on what the book will entail.
“Join superstar Lil Nas X—who boasts the longest-running #1 song in history—and Panini the pony on a joyous journey through the alphabet from sunup to sundown,” it reads. “Experience wide-open pastures, farm animals, guitar music, cowboy hats, and all things country in this debut picture book that’s perfect for music lovers learning their ABCs and for anyone who loves Nas’s signature genre-blending style.”
The passage also calls “C is for Country” a “celebration of song and the power inside us all.”
