The Horn family started putting on cowboy music shows in the Black Hills of South Dakota 25 years ago. At the Circle B Ranch, Kemp and Michele Horn, with their children Michael, Katie, Megan, and Christy, did all of the ranch chores you would expect: shoeing trail horses, hitching up the wagon team, cooking biscuits, and putting on shows for ranch guests. They learned how to sing cowboy harmonies and entertain from the world-famous cowboy performers of the West Association's Chuckwagons.
In the early 2000s, the Horns brought their cowboy show to Branson, Missouri. They put on their Circle B Cowboy Supper Show for many years as “The Riders of the Circle B.” Michael, Katie, Megan, and Christy all pursued other careers after closing the Circle B in 2012. Now, Kemp, Michael, and Christy are coming out of cowboy retirement by request.
In addition to harmony singing, Kemp plays harmonicas, Christy plays acoustic bass, and Michael plays guitar. Accomplished mandolinist and long-time music collaborator Samuel Clanton joins the group for 2020. Samuel has a fine ear for harmonies, due in part to his Alabama gospel-singing upbringing. The Riders are adding one of Branson's best fiddlers to round out the stage lineup.
Expect the 2020 Shepherd of the Hills Chuckwagon Show to feature fun tunes, impressive picking, funny, tall tales, and poems honoring the heroic American cowboy.
The dinner bell rings at 4 PM sharp. The cowboy entertainment runs from 5 PM – 6:15 PM. That means your wranglers can still catch the Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Drama or the Shepherd's Christmas Carol in season.Menu
