CHRIS & KRISTIE HORN have brought their bass and vocal talents back to MO Country. Leaving on and off over the years has done nothing to break the connection between them and the band. Chris being the "backbone" of the rhythm section with his outstanding bass playing, and Kristie with her high lead and harmony vocals will surely leave you wanting more.


SPECIAL GUEST BRETT DUDENHOEFFER is not a regular on the MO Country stage just yet. He has to make sure his homework is done first!
