Monday, October 07, 2013 Nashville, TN – Roger Horne, well known tenor singer/songwriter has officially joined Nashville based gospel quartet, Mercy Road. Horne will replace former tenor, Gene Miller, who left the group in October 2012 due to health issues.
Roger Horne began his career in 1969, singing tenor for the Gospel Harmony Boys. He left that group to join the Cathederal Quartet after tenor Mack Taunton left in 1972. Roger has enjoyed much success over the years with his gift of song writing. While traveling with the Cathederal’s Roger had several radio hits including, “Caught Up Together”, “He’ll Soon Be Here”, “I Owe It All To Thee”, “Jesus Have Mercy On Me”, and “Then Where Would I Be”, just to name a few. After leaving the Cathederal Quartet he formed his own group, the Roger Horne Trio. He also served short stints with the Scenicland Boys and Jerry and The Singing Goffs. Roger also owns his own publishing company. He eventually left Southern Gospel music for a very successful career in the insurance business. Horne recently retired from the insurance business in 2013. Mercy Road Quartet is thrilled that Roger has come out of retirement to join their ministry. “Crowds are accepting Roger with open arms everywhere we go”, says Mercy Road bass singer and spokesperson Mark Smith.
