The shows are a continuation of Murphey's Cosmic Cowboy Revival tour through Texas, starting in mid-May and running through early June. Appearing with Murphey will be Ryan Murphey and Herb Steiner. The Monday show will also feature other cowboy-themed acts including cowboy singer Grady Lee of Marshall and cowboy poet and author Lloyd Shelby of Crosby.
Lucky Boyd, Chairman of the Academy of Texas Music, Inc. states: "This will be an intimate listening opportunity. The farthest seat from the stage inside The Texas Music Barn is only thirty-six feet. The sound system is perfect and past attendees have marveled at the sound because it's tasteful and not too loud. It has been called the best new concert house in Texas and we're proud of that."
Tickets range from $50 to $65 and can be purchased online or by calling 800-959-5796 and leaving a message. Only 120 tickets will be sold for each event.
