There's really no secret to the "it" factor which makes Makenna & Brock so special; it's their charm, down-to-earth personalities and their music. Those are the endearing qualities that make this rising young Country duo so loved by their legions of fans. Make sure to check out their debut single "Burnin' The Night Down," and catch them at Branson Landing!
