It seems almost a given that Joel and Jamie Horn would make a career in Southern Gospel music. As preacher’s sons raised on the tunes of legendary gospel families like The Hinsons, Paynes and Crabbs, the pair spent the brunt of their childhood learning guitar and piano at their father’s Loggy Bottom Pentecostal Church, nestled in the hills of tiny Whitewood, Virginia.
With Joel singing lead and playing piano, Jamie on drums and family member Scott Brown on bass, the Horns literally grew up on stage, performing every local benefit, church concert, and revival within a 10-mile radius of Whitewood. With adulthood came an expansion of the band into its current formation as The Horn Family in 2000, when Joel and Jamie’s wives – Tina and Tracy, respectively -came on board to offer their vocals and Sidney Helton joined as lead guitarist.
