“In fact, I sent Kenny Ray a note to say his new stuff doesn't sound like the stuff my grandparents (from Kentucky) use to listen to. Kenny Ray's approach to bluegrass is new, exciting, and quite simply rocks. Now, you may think a progressive approach to bluegrass is sacreligious but Kenny Ray Horton not only pulls it off, he gets it on! And I mean he really gets it on! The arrangements, the chord progessions, the vocals all fuzed to bring a new life to a traditional sound. A sound unlike that which you've grown accustomed. What I'm trying to say is do yourself a favor and give a listen to one of the most talented young artists of our time. Kenny Ray Horton will give you a reason to put bluegrass music on your play list. In a word, Kenny Ray's new set "A Canary's Song" is wonderful. It's a combination of east meets west - of traditional and contemporary - of country and good old rock-n-roll. So stick around...you'll be glad you did!”
“We had a great interview with Katy Daley on Washington D.C.'s bluegrass station, WAMU. If you missed it, click the link below or go to www.echoesrecordingstudio.com and give it a listen!”
“The name Kenny Ray Horton may not be easily recognizable, but that may be about to change. This native of Rocky Comfort, Mo., has an extensive background in both country and bluegrass music and has written material for such noted artists as Kenny Rogers. In 2008, he became the lead singer of the U.S. Navy’s bluegrass band, Country Current, and only the fourth person in the band’s 36 year history to hold that position. These 12 superlative tracks highlight Kenny’s considerable vocal and songwriting talents. Joining him are Country Current bandmates, Keith Arneson (banjo), Pat White (fiddle and vocals), and Jeremy Middleton (bass and vocals). Other supporting musicians include Mike Auldridge (resonator guitar) and Darren Beachley (background vocals). Most of the titles were either written or co-written by Kenny. One exception is the title song which was co-authored by Garth Brooks...”
