Michael Martin Murphey - Heartland Cowboy: Cowboy Songs Vol. 5

When people think of Michael Martin Murphey (who also shows up on some of his albums as Michael Murphey), they tend to think of him as a crossover artist and his trademark song "Wildfire". Deep down, however, Mr. Murphey is that same young man who sang the great old cowboy songs around the campfires of the Old Sky Ranch in Lewisville, Texas. He still owns and works a ranch and is very dedicated to the preservation of the songs of the Old West.

Like many of us, Mr. Murphey has become concerned about the future of American Agriculture and its rightful place in our West. This album reflects this, and it is wonderful to see his children writing songs that show their commitment to the land as well. All aspects of the modern range are covered on this album, good and bad.
