This preacher's kid then launched a solo country career.  Jeff’s rich country vocals of are the perfect blend with Sarah’s tender voice that touches the heart and spirit.  Sarah was Miss Ohio 1989, a talent award winner in the Miss America Pageant, and has a background in musical theater, TV and radio commercials, and voice-overs. She's been a featured speaker and emcee for special events and women's conferences.
