Michael Martin Murphey
A bonafide son of the Lone Star state, America’s #1 selling singing cowboy, Michael Martin Murphey, divides his time between ranches in the Panhandle of West Texas, northern New Mexico, Southern Colorado and the Ocooch Mountains of Wisconsin.
Murphey has six gold records and a pocket full of Grammy nominations, as well as confirmation from BMI that his song “Wildfire” is one of the most played songs in the history of radio, in all formats. Murph’s history with Red River goes back to his boyhood when he vacationed in the high country with his family, and his experiences in the late 70s and 80s established him as an adopted son of the Land of Enchantment.
Murphey has a long history in Red River playing at the Motherlode with the Great American Honky-Tonk Band, his Westfest events in the early 90s, and regular performances in more recent years at Moreno Valley Cowboy Evenings.
He is embarking on a new venture this summer called Rockin 3M Chuckwagon Dinner & Show where he will be performing from July thru September at this new venue – formerly Bitter Creek Guest Ranch.
