    My darling saddle pal, Kristyn, you know how proud I am of you and how I love your voice (and to sing with you!). Whenever you sing, I am continually surprised at the strength and quality of your voice and the HEART you sing with. Blessings, "Wildfire"

    saw you on Shotgun Red-- really enjoyed your music. Thank God there are still kids interested in 4-h. I was in it when I was a kid and a teen, as were my sisters, then was a leader. my daughter and half a dozen nieces and nephews were as well. I am so thankful we have young people who enjoy wholesome activities and care about things that are really important. And about Roy Rogers movies!! And thank God for parents who want to raise their kids right. Hang in there, keep up the good work and I'll be waiting to hear more from you. God bless.

    I saw you on Shotgun Red's show. I loved your voice and the style you use to sing. Thank God someone is keeping this type of music going and there's still cowboys and girls out there. Thanks.

"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."

      -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"
