"Kristyn Harris wowed a packed OK Theatre Saturday night for the Mule Days finale music event....Her full throated performance on stage at the OK Theatre nearly brought the house down.
Whatever tune she was performing, you had the feeling that this was a genuine, warm-hearted woman, who knows horses, ranching , and the West, and loves them all.
...her guitar found all the notes and chords...no matter how complex. It was the perfect match to showcase her clear, powerful voice that boomed during performances of Ghost Riders in the Sky, and softened with emotions when singing about her favorite mare.
It was an unforgettable OK Theatre performance that left the very appreciative audience cheering for more, and very, very glad they'd been there for Kristyn Harris' shimmering, emotive, and heartfelt western music."

"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."
