Who remembers the song “What’s Forever For?” I couldn’t tell you when I first learned it or last heard it, but I could sing every word if it were to play right now. It’s such a beautiful song by Michael Martin Murphey, who will perform at 7 p.m., Sept. 1 at Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View.
Murphey’s performance is part of the park’s Celebrity Concert series. Murphey started gaining in popularity in the 1970’s with hits like “Wildfire,” “Carolina in the Pines” and “Wild Bird.” He’s had numerous albums that hit high on the charts of the Western Music Association. His three “Cowboy Christmas” albums concept became a trademarked touring show and musical concept for him. The tour now spans 40 cities per holiday season.
He is respected as a songwriter in the pop and country-western fields. His songwriter abilities span from the blues to country to pop ballad, rock and roll, bluegrass, western-swing, cowboy music and jazz.
