In 2003, Chronicle Books published Honky Tonk: Portraits of Country Music, Horenstein's documentary survey of country music during the late 1970s and early 1980s. W. W. Norton & Company published a revised edition in 2013. Honky Tonk has also been presented as an exhibition at many other public and private museums and galleries, notably the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in 2006, Rhode Island School of Design Museum in 2005, The Annenberg Space for Photography in 2014.

In recent years, Horenstein has been working on short documentary films. His Spoke (2014), a celebration of the Austin, TX dance hall The Broken Spoke, was funded by The Annenberg Foundation and screened at the Austin, Alexandria, Chicago International Movies and Music, Julien Dubuque film festivals, and many other venues.
