While all are accomplished individual performers, it took a tragic event to lead to the group's genesis.
Darin Husmann started performing in music at the age of 10 in the Bismarck All-City Boys' Choir. His true call to music wouldn't find him again until 10 years later. In college, Darin was invited to sing to the Administrative Assistant for the Morning Show on radio station KGLL FM 96.1 "The Eagle", in honor of Secretary's Day. After singing live on the air, the listeners' overwhelming response led the station to form a 14-week segment called the "Make My Day" segment, starring Darin, singing modified cover songs to fit special events. In 1998, he became lead singer in the KGLL FM 96.1 band.
Brian Husmann's accomplishments include: Top 5 National Finalist for the Mickey Mouse Club in the same class as Brittany Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Christina Aguilera; three years performing with the Arvada Actor's Guild; several first place finishes in local and regional singing competitions; and 5 years living and performing in Nashville, TN - at establishments such as Legends Corner, The Stage, and Tootsie's.
In December 2007, their Mother (Sandra Husmann - "Sandy") unexpectedly collapsed at the entrance of the "Mall of America" while Christmas shopping. Darin and Brian caught a red-eye flight to Minneapolis, MN, where Sandy was in Intensive Care. Their Mother was completely unresponsive. When Brian and Darin sang to her, her heart rate increased, and she showed signs of brainwave activity. She continued to live for 2 more days. and Momma's Pride was born.
Sandy never got to see them perform on stage together, so every time they perform, it is in her honor.
- In 2008, Momma's Pride rocked the stage of the world famous "Grizzly Rose" during the NBC audition for the "Nashville Star" television show. They then went on to the National Finals held in Washington D.C., and advanced through two days of cuts, to the final elimination. This put them in the top ten duos in the United States, out of over 50,000 applicants.
- In 2011, 2012, 2014, and 2015 Buck'd Off (Formerly Momma's Pride) won the Nebraska State Championship for the Texaco Country Showdown, the largest country music talent search in America. LeAnne Rhymes, Chris Young, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley all got their start in this competition.
Buck'd Off's ultimate goal is to make an audience smile, and enjoy their greatest passion...singing and playing country music.
