July 4, 2009 - First CD!!!

Kris's first CD, "No Turning Back" was released on July 4, 2009.  As a first CD only a limited number of copies were printed.  All copies have sold out and there are no plans to print anymore copies.  So, the "No Turning Back" album is now a collectors' item.

This page is dedicated to the memory of "No Turning Back."  We look forward to more from Kris.
