Music has always been a major part of Eric Horner’s life. With Steven Curtis Chapman as his first guitar teacher, Eric grew up with a guitar in his hands playing and singing Gospel music all over Western near their hometown of Paducah. Eric moved to Nashville TN at the age of 19 to pursue his dream of becoming a professional songwriter and musician.
It didn’t take long for the doors to open and over the next 17 years Eric toured the world playing with such artists as Lee Greenwood, Shania Twain, Wynonna Judd and Brad Paisley. In 2002, all of that changed. Eric began to feel a call on his life to return to his Gospel music roots and to use his talents for a higher purpose. He surrendered to full time music ministry in the Fall of that year and hasn’t looked back since.
Eric and his wife Debby spend over 250 days a year on the road ministering in churches and military bases all across America. God has given them the unique opportunity to encourage and minister to the newest members of our military as they go through basic training. Although known for a God and Country message, Eric is placing a big emphasis on Faith and the Family for his 2014 tour. With the attacks our families face today, there’s never been a more important time to encourage the family and to address the serious issues we all face today.
