Michael Martin Murphey will be in concert at the Elko Convention Center during the 36th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering. He is pictured at the Ian Tyson Tribute in 2019. 

ELKO — Michael Martin Murphey presents a special performance of songs from his over 40 years of performing … all with his stellar Rio Grande Band featuring Gary Roller, Ollie O’Shea, Ryan Murphey and rising star Carin Mari.

The performance starts at 8 p.m. Jan. 30 at the Elko Convention Center Auditorium. Tickets are on sale at www.nationalcowboypoetrygathering.org.

This exceptional performance at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering will feature such hits as “What’s Forever For,” “Wildfire,” “Cowboy Logic” and selections from his recent Cowboy Christmas tour that has been touring annually for over 25 years.

Michael Martin Murphey is a proud son of Texas, where his family settled in 1858. He divides his time between his home in Amarillo, headquarters of Murphey Western Institute in Fort Worth, and his Rocky Mountain ranch in Walden, Colorado.

A true genre-busting artist, he has released more than 35 albums. His song “Wildfire” is among the most-aired songs in radio history.

Murphey’s most recent release, “Austinology, Alleys of Austin,” is a look at a seminal period of the Austin music scene that he — along with the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker, Gary P. Nunn and more — helped shape what is today considered “Americana” music.
