A native of Paducah, KY, Eric can trace his love of music back to the age of six, when he started strumming a tennis racket. Graduating to guitar shortly there-after, Eric began honing his craft under the teaching of multiple Dove Award winner Steven Curtis Chapman and spent his teenage years playing and singing in various Gospel groups around Western Kentucky. His talents quickly gained him access to playing for some of country musics top performers such as Lee Greenwood, Wynonna, Shania Twain and many others. Eric's self-penned, patriotic anthem "We Will Stand" took hold shortly after September 11, 2001 and was played on every reporting station around the U.S. raising thousands of dollars for the Staten Island Victims Relief Fund in NY.

Eric's patriotic concerts are much in demand across America.

His first patriotic song was born that night and the songs honoring and supporting this country and military continue to flow from his pen. With 12 albums under his belt in 2006 - Eric Horner is well honed in his craft as a songwriter, Recording Artist and Performer. Whether you are looking for a full band - Patriotic concert or a worship service - Eric Horner delivers with his whole heart and weaves a story throughout the entire concert.
