With a mother as talented as Jennifer Nettles, it’s no surprise that three-year-old Magnus loves music.
“I think it’s an inherent, human property to like music, so of course he likes music,” the proud mom said. “He tends to be really drawn to the drums, which I think a lot of kids are first anyways because rhythm and melody are really the only two parts of music, when you think primally. So, he loves the drums, but he also has fun on the piano.”
The little boy not only loves beats, but he also loves singing or being sung to.
“I’ll see where he, you know, where his interests really lie as he continues to get older…and he loves to sing, and he loves for me to sing. He’s heard it since I was on the road when I was pregnant with him. So, he’s heard it his whole life and even before, and still I rock him and sing to him. So…he loves it.”
Hearing Magnus sing is an exciting for Nettles, who expressed her excitement over his continued development to speak earlier this year.
“He is in a super developmental explosion of language right now,” she explained. “He’s just now really getting to be able to express himself in sentences. And different kids, you know, develop along different spectrums.”
Nettles, who released her new album, Playing With Fire, in April, will star in Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love later this year.
