Michael Martin Murphy doesn't call himself a country artist, and with good reason. He's a "singing cowboy poet," and his are the sorts of songs one rarely, if ever, hears on country radio anymore. Of his six gold records, the most notable may be Cowboy Songs, the first collection of cowboy-related songs to achieve gold status since Marty Robbins, who sang about buckin' broncs and six-shooters back in the 1960s. Michael Martin Murphy will be in Fort Worth on Monday for his ninth annual performance of Cowboy Christmas. During the concert, Murphy will share holiday folk tales, Christmas music and several songs from his upcoming CD. The concert will take place at the Bass Performance Hall, Fourth and Calhoun streets, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35 to $75. Call 1-877-212-4280 or visit basshall.com.
Mon., Dec. 11, 7 p.m.
