    Saw you at Old Tucson Studios Yesterday. Enjoyed you performance very much. It is wonderful to see a young person that is not caught up in what passes for music today. Keep on going. God bless you and your music.

    All I can say is WOW! You were the Belle of the Gathering at the Cowboy Gathering in Alpine last weekend. After hearing you on the newcomer show Friday morning, I tried to catch your sessions during the two days. But about a hundred others had the same idea.....standing room only! I even left a neighboring session when I heard your voice in the next room where you were "pinch hitting" for a missing performer! Can't wait to see you at other venues.....count me as a Big Fan!

    Kristyn: We just saw you at Western Folklife Ctr jam session Friday night at the Elko Cowboy Poetry gathering. You were jaming with a banjo player. We loved you, sat for an hour listening with great pleasure. Met your mom, she sat next to me for awhile. She was enjoying all the well wishers that came by and offers, hope some panned out to your benefit. We will look for you in the future at other Cowboy Poetry/Music Gatherings. We are very proud of your achievements and know you will go far. You are an inspiration to our youth. Good job! Happy Trails::

"Once in a great while I see a performer in Western Music who knocks my socks off. And once in an even greater while, I will have the privilege of watching a performer come onto the scene, gun (or guitar) a-blazin' and put the hard work, energy, and dedication into their already outstanding level of talent to become a top notch performer that I'm proud to endorse. Kristyn Harris is the real deal: genuinely musical, with a style all her own, and the spunk and drive to ride the Western Swing/Western Music pony all the way to the finish. This is a talented young lady, to be sure, and just as important, she represents what is good, honest, wholesome, and fun about the music of the West while keeping her own identity, and her own sound. Heck, I'd put my money on Kristyn Harris to be the performer who brings a whole new audience to Western Music and Western Swing."
      - Juni Fisher, 2011 Entertainer of the Year, 2006, 2009, 2011 Female Performer of the Year, 2008 Wrangler Award Winner

      - Belinda Gail, 7 time Western Music Association Female Performer of the Year, 2 time Academy of Western Artists Female Vocalist, time Group/Duo of the Year with Curly Musgrave and Album of the Year 

"With Kristyn, what you see is what you get, and what you get is an extremely talented young lady with a passion for her music and the skills to pull it off. She has a deep respect for her musical roots while contributing a fresh new voice - and she can SWING."
      -Carolyn Martin, Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame Inductee, 2-time AWA Western Swing Female Vocalist

"Because of my years of experience as a Cowboy Poet, I have been invited to perform at nearly every major western entertainment venue in the United States and Canada. I have seen and heard nearly every western singer and poet perform in the field, and I can honestly say that Kristyn Harris is one of the most talented and exciting entertainers I have ever witnessed. She receives standing ovations nearly every time she performs, and deserves every one of them. What is special about this young lady is the fact that she has no ego and is one of the nicest persons in the Western Entertainment business."
      -Yvonne Hollenbeck, 4-time WMA* Female Poet of the Year and AWA* award winner

Kristyn is the fresh new face of western music. Not only is she already an accomplished singer and guitarist, she is also a fine horsewoman. Kristyn, I am so proud of you!
      -Jean Prescott, multiple award winner

"It's top drawer!"  - Rick Huff, Western Way Magazine, referring to "Let Me Ride"

"Kristyn throws down on my adaptation of the old Geoff Mack song, "I've Been Everywhere"... I was clutching my chest and gasping for air just WATCHING her on those last two verses...!!!"   - Brian Burns, Texas singer/songerwriter, commenting on Kristyn's performance of "I've Been Everywhere (in Texas)"

      -Bobbi Jean Bell, "OutWest Concert Series" venue operator 

"Kristyn is one of the hardest working young people in the business....she is polished and professional in her presentation, way beyond her years. A lot of adults could learn from watching her prepare and present her unique brand of cowgirl swing music! I'm so proud of her!
And she has a wonderful attitude. What a great young role model Kristyn is."
