Michael Martin Murphey Returns

Michael Martin Murphey Returns
To Red River NM For Summer Season
RED RIVER, NEW MEXICO — There are a lot of reasons that iconic singer - songwriter Michael Martin Murphey likes to return to Red River, New Mexico as often as possible. In fact, he loves it so much, he, along with Red River businessman Steve Heglund, opened the Rockin’ 3M Amphitheater where Murphey will perform twice weekly beginning in July and continuing through Labor Day Weekend.  See complete schedule at:
“Red River is my spiritual home,” said Murphey, whose long list of huge hit songs includes “Wildfire,” “Carolina In The Pines,” “Cowboy Logic,” “Geronimo’s Cadillac” and many more.  “It’s absolutely stunning here. I went there several times when I was still in high school,” he continues.   “I was hooked on the sheer beauty of the area then and decided that it would always be a part of my life.”
Situated in heart of the American West, The Rockin’ 3M Amphitheater opened in the summer of 2013. The stage stands against a backdrop of a quiet lake situated in the middle of The Rocky Mountains.   “I can literally walk to the back of the stage and throw in a line to fish,” Murphey laughs.  “I’ve not actually caught a fish during a performance, but there’s always hope.”
In addition to a concert from Murphey guests to the Rockin’ 3M Amphitheater are treated to a chuckwagon style dinner featuring Southwestern food and ambiance.
Located at 179 Bitter Creek Road, the Rockin’ 3M Amphitheater was part of the old Lazy H Guest Ranch in the 1920s and ‘30s.  The open amphitheater allows the cool mountain air to float through, so guests are encouraged to bring blankets or a warm coat on most nights. “It’s the ‘open sky experience’ I’ve always loved,” Murphey said.  “This is what I’ve always wanted to do. This is a dream come true for me.  I can walk out my own backdoor and play without going all over the country.”
