Penguin Random House: Grammy Winner Lil Nas X Releases His Debut Children’s Book, C IS FOR COUNTRY

Grammy Award–winning music artist Lil Nas X has released his debut children’s book, C IS FOR COUNTRY, published this week in hardcover by Random House Books for Young Readers and as an audiobook by Listening Library.

Genre-bending pop star Lil Nas X, who first rose to prominence with his 12-times platinum country-rap hit, “Old Town Road,” brings his signature style and voice to the page in this entertaining alphabet picture book. With bold, bright illustrations from award-winning artist Theodore Taylor III, C IS FOR COUNTRY follows a young cowboy and his sidekick, Panini the pony, as they use the ABCs to seek out adventure in wide-open pastures, embrace family, and celebrate individuality, all during a single day. As a bonus, artwork throughout the book includes surprises recognizable to Nas’s fans, adding another layer to the reading experience.
