Spalding Laboratories, the Fly Predator company famous for helping horse lovers eliminate pest flies, will include Mary Ann Kennedy’s new compilation CD, “It All Starts Here,” upon request at no charge with any purchase. This 11-song album focuses on many of the universal aspects of horse worship that unite us: starting with the traditional guitar licks of the Anthem style “Born To Ride,” to the riveting fiddles and hilarious lyrics of “Horsin’ Around” and the guitar pickin’ good times expressed in “Hayin’ Time.”
Kennedy, a two-time Grammy nominee, truly captures the depth of feeling we all share with her gorgeous and touching title song, “It All Starts Here.” Inspired and written in tribute to Dr. Robert M. Miller, one of the world’s premier visionaries regarding gentle horse breaking and training, Dr. Miller is renowned for his life’s work educating folks about Natural Horsemanship and Foal Imprint Training. This heartfelt ballad captures the majestic spirit of Dr. Miller’s sensitivity and high minded approach to dealing with our fellow creatures. The song, accompanied a compelling and moving video produced by Spalding Labs for its Light Hands Horsemanship event, can be viewed by clicking “It All Starts Here,” Video.
“Giving our horse customers an absolutely fabulous collection of music about the horses they love is part of our tradition of going above and beyond what customers expect,” stated Tom Spalding, Spalding Lab’s “Chief Fly Guy.”
“I hope this will become a CD favorite. Last year’s free copy of Dr. Miller’s book Ancient Secrets Of The Horse’s Mind was a big hit with customers,” he added.
A Nashville-based songwriter, Kennedy has written numerous hits recorded by other artists, along with 5 CD’s featuring her own recordings. She and Tom Spalding selected 10 of their favorite horse song selections and added her latest, “It All Starts Here,” to create this unique collection specifically for the Spalding Labs family. A rider since the age of 5, Kennedy purchased her first horse at 12 with her “music money” earned singing at local events. Her passion for horses, “barn smart” lyrics and musical genius have given our equine community a voice, one that resonates regardless of discipline. She is genuinely a “real deal” horse person.
