Shaker Road Elementary Kids Create Countryfest 2013 Jingle For Schagticoke – Reading, Writing and Rhyming

Chalk up another fun and rewarding experience – this time working with students in Mrs. Bushey’s class at Shaker Road Elementary School in Colonie.  Some extremely talented jingle writers were on hand, so I put them to work immediately to write a Countryfest song! 

As you might have heard (arrf arrf), Countryfest 2013 is coming to the Schagticoke Fairgrounds on July 13th.  It’s a star-studded lineup, featuring Sheryl Crow, Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie and the Artist Formerly Known as Hootie – Darius Rucker, plus much, much more.

I enlisted the kids from Mrs. Bushey’s 4th grade class to create a little jingle that we could pop in during our live broadcast from Schagticoke.  It worked out PERFECTLY .
