Add Some Cowboy to Your Christmas with a Performance by Michael Martin Murphy

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 his multi-city Cowboy Christmas tour, which hits the Corpus Christi’s Performing Arts Center on Sunday, December 15th.

The 2018 holiday tour was more successful than ever, with multiple sellout performances in some 20 cities between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. But, it seems as if Murphey never tires of spreading the Christmas cheer. “What I try to do is encourage people to think of the spirit of giving, charity and forgiving, which is the spirit of Christmas,” says Murphey. “It’s about delivering that beautiful message of Christmas to people.”

Michael Martin Murphey’s Cowboy Christmas was inspired by an event that began in 1885 in Anson, TX when the local community of cowboys came together to celebrate the season with the very first Cowboy Christmas Ball. The festivities included dancing and merriment that has continued virtually every year since. Cowboy Christmas differs from other seasonal presentations in its focus of the “special relationship” of the Christmas story to rural communities, farmers and ranchers.

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.
Cowboy Christmas will visit the Performing Arts Center in Corpus Christi on December 15th. Ticket prices will vary and can be purchased online via tamucc.tix.com or in person at the venue.
