Back Home Signs Recording Agreement
"We just feel like if something is working, then keep doing it," says Jimmy Layne of Back Home. Jimmy continued "Cross Country has believed in us and our ministry from the very beginning, and they have produced us great music to be able reach the lost and encourage the saved.”
Jeff King and Chris Latham, owners of Cross Country, are completely hands on in the record making process. They each play, engineer, and produce each song on every album. They are both Nashville veterans, with accolades of their own. Jeff has toured with Reba McEntire for several years and is one of music's most in demand session players.
"I'm so happy to be working with Back Home. The music is fresh and real, telling powerful stories we can all relate to in some form. Their ministry brings comfort to those in need, and hope for people trying to change their lives. They've been through it, now they sing about it. If you haven't experienced a live concert.. Do it!" said Jeff King/Producer of Back Home and Cross Country Records.
Chris has engineered projects for many of today's top country acts and is an accomplished musician. Chris Latham commented "I feel privileged to be connected to Back Home's ministry. The life experiences, sincerity, and dedication to seeing peoples lives changed, shows up in their songwriting, vocal delivery, and live concerts. I look forward to seeing what else God has in store for them."

About Back Home
The ministry of the Award Winning and Award Nominated group Back Home is a true example of the parable of the Prodigal Son. The ups and downs of life are all too familiar to Jimmy and Jennifer Layne. Through suffering several miscarriages, one to a set of twins, Jimmy's struggle with major drug and alcoholism problems and losing both of their well-established jobs within three days of each other, the faithfulness of God has revealed itself time and time again. Journeying through their pain and heartache together, songwriting is the therapy that gets Jimmy and Jennifer through the tough times. Raw and heartfelt lyrics that can only come from "real life" experience accompany beautiful melodic tunes that are sure to touch the hearts of the young, old and everyone in between. They have recently added Jennifer's cousin, Stacy Pearcy to officially make them a trio.
