Do you remember a couple of years ago when I shared a 1 Girl Nation review? My daughter and I absolutely loved it and continue to listen to and enjoy it! Needless to say, when I heard 1GN, formerly 1 Girl Nation, was releasing their sophomore album, Unite, on April 15 with Reunion Records, I was so excited to check out this new 1GN CD!
Disclosure: I received a complimentary download of the CD to facilitate my review. Regardless, I only recommend products I feel would be good for my readers. All opinions are my own and those of my family.
1GN CD – Unite
What I appreciate about 1GN is their passion to bring fans music with a meaningful message, and that is certainly true of their newest album, Unite. The album centers around the song “Guard Your Heart,” which is based on Proverbs 4:23-27. “Above all else, guard your heart.” Their message is, once again, relative to young women and girls encouraging them to guard their hearts in a world where it’s so easy to get caught up in things we shouldn’t through social media and things online.
As a mom of a girl, and actually, just in general, I have a passion to encourage her and other young girls to do just that – guard their hearts. There really is so much around us now that can be negative influences. That’s why I love that 1GN has released a second album because now our daughter can listen to more great music that is upbeat and fun for her, and is getting a great message at the same time! Unite has a fun and energetic pop style that you just have to dance to! Or, at least my daughter and I both have been!

1GN, comprised of Lauryn Taylor Bach, Kayli Robinson and Carmen Hadley, blends upbeat, relevant pop music, with lyrics that are focused on one united message of overcoming hate with love, and living boldly for Christ, even while having fun. Their self-titled debut album 1 Girl Nation was released in August 2013, which reached No. 2 on Billboard‘s Heatseeker Albums chart and No. 9 on Billboard‘s Top Christian Albums chart. 1GN has played on more than 80 “Secret Keeper Girl Tour” concert dates, co-headlined the “While We’re Young” Tour with OBB and performed at Disney’s Night of Joy. The group earned a “New Artist of the Year” nomination for the 45th Annual GMA Dove Awards.
Since their debut in 2013, 1GN has released A Very 1 Girl Nation Christmas EP (2014), which included “Let It Go” from Disney’s classic film Frozen. In 2015, they released their own 40-day devotional book published by Lifeway Christian Resources titled No Filter. The devotional shares their stories of how their relationship with Christ teaches them to live a life of faith and authenticity. I am definitely going to be checking out both of these!
