In addition to revealing that his first children’s book would officially be dropping in the new year, Lil Nas X also shared a first look at the brand new cover of C is for Country, which features an illustrated version of the music star riding a pony (fittingly named Panini) while wielding a guitar in his outstretched hand.
Per an official synopsis on Penguin Random House Kid’s website, C is for Country will find Lil Nas X and his trusty steed, Panini stetting off on “a joyous journey through the alphabet from sunup to sundown.”
“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-bending style,” writes the imprint.
“Featuring bold, bright art from Theodore Taylor III, with plenty of hidden surprises for Nas’s biggest fans, C is for Country is a celebration of song and the power inside us all.”
C is for Country by Lil Nas X debuts on January 5, 2021.
