Michael Martin Murphey | Cowboy Christmas Tour
1812 Buddy Holly Ave
Saturday, December 7th & Sunday, December 8th
7:30 – 9:30pm
For more than 25 years, acclaimed singer-songwriter Michael Martin Murphey has been celebrating the Christmas season — “Cowboy-style.”
A pioneer of Americana music with a resume that includes hits that have topped the Pop, Country, Bluegrass and Western Music charts, the genre-busting Murphey has announced plans to continue celebrating with his multi-city Cowboy Christmas® tour for the 26th straight year.
Cowboy Christmas® differs from other seasonal presentations in its focus of the “special relationship” of the Christmas story to rural communities, farmers and ranchers. “God first sent an angel to the livestock people — shepherds in the fields. Whether you're a believer or not, the story emphasizes that the news of the birth of the Savior was not given to royalty or politicians. The Lord did not alert the media or ministers.
“That underscores that Jesus came for all people, all races and all classes,” he continues. “That means that rural people should feel a significant part of the Christmas message because they were chosen to hear the story first. This is my favorite season of the year. We remember our fathers and mothers. We celebrate our children and we treasure our friends and the many blessings given by our Lord. It really brings out the very best in all of us.”
This past year has been incredible for the Number One Selling Western Music Artist. In April, he was honored with a lifetime achievement award at the prestigious Western Heritage Awards in Oklahoma City, OK. A month earlier, he was inducted into the Texas Songwriter Hall of Fame.
