Hot new country trio, THE FARM, is set to make their Grand Ole Opry debut February 10th, 2012. Made up of members Nick Hoffman (vocals, fiddle), Damien Horne (vocals, keyboard, guitar) and Krista Marie (vocals, guitar), the act is deeply rooted in Country Music with their core built around a solid, identifiable vocal harmony. Performing as an acoustic trio for their Opry debut, the exciting milestone follows the success of the band’s first single release, “Home Sweet Home,” which is currently No. 38 on Mediabase with 70 adds across the country. The track will be featured on the band’s forthcoming debut album, which will be released later this year via All-In Records/Elektra Nashville, co-produced by Farmer Nick Hoffman with hit songwriter, Danny Myrick.
“Playing the Grand Ole Opry is a dream of all dreams, as an artist, a fan and an African American. I am honored and humbled by this opportunity.” – Damien Horne, THE FARM (vocals, keyboard, guitar)
“One of the very first things I did after moving to Music City was visit the Grand Ole Opry. It was SO exciting and intimidating to stand on the stage where all the legends have played. The last time my grandmother came to visit, she said, ‘I can’t wait until the day YOU are playing here. I won’t miss it!’ It’s now two years since she passed, but I know that she will be there, and have the best seat in the house. I’m honored to be sharing this special moment with my amazing partners, Nick and Damien.” – Krista Marie, THE FARM (vocals, guitar)
“Being invited to play the Grand Ole Opry is, simply put, a dream come true. As a fiddle player, one of my earliest inspirations was and still is the great Opry star Roy Acuff. When I first saw him spin his bow and play that fiddle on TV, I knew that Nashville was the place for me. All of my heroes are Opry Stars. I still spin my bow around on stage as a bit of a tribute to Mr. Acuff. It’ll be one of the great moments of my life to stand where they stood.” – Nick Hoffman, THE FARM (vocals, fiddle)
