Mr. Stinky Feet Turns 20! 

Over the past two decades, Jim Cosgrove has logged more than 4,000 performances in 38 U.S. states and seven countries, including two performances on the south lawn of The White House, as part of its annual Easter Egg Roll. And his YouTube channel has more than 2.2 million views.

To commemorate this career milestone, Cosgrove is officially unveiling his ninth album Toe Jams: Mr. Stinky Feet’s Greatest Hits. It’s a collection of fan-picked favorites, which includes new versions (noted as “Anniversary Editions”) of some of his classics and a previously unreleased song “Rockin’ The Library.”

Rockin’ The Library!

We teamed up with the Mid-Continent Public Libraries to produce this rockin’ music video. Enjoy!


Mr. Stinky Feet’s Not Just for Kids!

Take a delightful romp through 32 inspiring essays from Jim’s time as a parenting columnist for The Kansas City Star.

“If you dive into this book expecting a good laugh, you’ll be amply rewarded. But don’t be surprised if you also come away with a few tears and a greater understanding that we all have experiences that unite us.” — MissouriLife magazine

When he isn’t singing or writing, Cosgrove shares inspiring messages with adult audiences, reminding them that taking a child-like (not childish) approach to life enhances the wonder of Now. He lives near Kansas City with his wife, their two daughters, and a handsome rescued mutt, Dobby.
