Michael Martin Murphey’s Cowboy Christmas

Saturday, November 26, 8:00pm
Wichita Orpheum Theatre, 200 N. Broadway

Murphey has been a major part of America’s musical landscape for four decades. His huge hits include “Wildfire,” “Carolina In The Pines,” “Long Line of Love,” “What’s Forever For,” “Geronimo’s Cadillac” and “Cowboy Logic.” A multiple Grammy nominee and an inductee into the Western Music Hall of Fame, the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame and winner of the Texas Music Award for Best Album, Murphey is a working cowboy who embraces and celebrates what he calls the cowboy culture —a life based on faith, family, hard work, and a passion for conservation and the environment.

More Things To Do In & Around Wichita This Holiday Season

Meaghan wears many hats throughout the day: wife to husband of fifteen years, Jeremy, mom to two incredible children, Jacob and Aliza, legal assistant, foster parent, and surrogate. A Wichita native, she met her husband at K-State (Go State!) and they moved from coast (Los Angeles, CA) to coast (Manchester, NH and Groton, CT) before settling back down in Kansas. She is a big fan of her crock pots, has read more than a novel a day for the last five years, and crochets in her “spare” time.
