THE HORN FAMILY CELEBRATES THE RELEASE OF THEIR HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM
The Horn Family album was recorded in Nashville, Tenn. and produced by prolific country artist and renowned songwriter Mark Collie whose works have been recorded by artists such as Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, George Jones, and Alabama.
Drawing from their unique life experiences, the entire band played a pivotal role in the songwriting process, with each member demonstrating a different perspective of God’s goodness and grace. Among the 10 tracks slated for the album, the celebratory tune “I’ve Got It” as well as the ballad “Rise Above the Fall” feature elevating lyrics and rhythmic melodies, giving a new meaning to contemporary country gospel.
Leading up to their album debut, the powerful single “For The Life Of Me” was recently released to radio and continues to garner adds at a number of highly respected stations around the nation.
The Horn Family offers a unique combination of country and contemporary gospel and is made up of Joel Horn, Tina Horn, Jamie Horn and Tracy Horn. Born for careers in Southern Gospel music, Joel and Jamie Horn were raised by their father, a Pentecostal preacher, on the tunes of legendary gospel families such as The Hinsons, Paynes and Crabbs. From what started off as a childhood passion, the two Horn siblings began to perform, eventually expanding into The Horn Family, when Joel and Jamie’s wives, Tina and Tracy, came on board to offer their vocal harmonies.
In 2011, co-owners of the Texas Rangers, Bob and Janice Simpson, unleashed their latest venture RayLynn Records, a new Christian music label for emerging performers, aimed to serve as a launch pad for breakthrough artists to share the Gospel through music. It was that same year they signed The Horn Family, who share a passion for spreading the message of Christ through music.
“Music has been a part of my entire life, beginning with the earliest childhood memories of my mother playing the piano as she sang classic gospel hymns,” says Bob Simpson. “RayLynn Records is the fulfillment of a dream that my wife Janice and I shared to bring truly God inspired music to the world delivered by talented artists such as the Horn family.”
