News From Rural Rhythm Records:
Michael Martin Murphey and his Buckaroo Bluegrass friends ride again with his new album release Tall Grass and Cool Water that continues the connection between Cowboy and Bluegrass music. This all began with his Grammy nominated Buckaroo Blue Grass album and continued with Buckaroo Blue Grass II. The third of the series, Tall Grass and Cool Water is a collection of songs that are cowboy in theme yet played in a style that is compatible with the sterling bluegrass musicians he’s brought together including Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, Pat Flynn, Charlie Cushman, Andy Hall, Andy Leftwich, Troy Engle, Mike Bubb and Craig Nelson.
The album is now available at: Best Buy, f.y.e. entertainment, Amazon.com, iTunes, eMusic, Ernest Tubb Record Shops and many, many more retail outlets.
Tall Grass and Cool Water features the James Gang Trilogy, with the songs: The Ballad of Jesse James, The Ballad of Cole Younger, and Frank James Farewell. Produced and arranged by Ryan Murphey, this new project is heavily driven by Michael Martin Murphey’s own lifestyle as a rancher who has enjoyed decades of raising horses and cattle on the wide-open prairies and mountains of the Southwest and Mid-West.
Those who listen to Tall Grass and Cool Water will be transported in imagination and emotion to America’s vast prairies and mountains, connect with nature, and feel the passion of the personal relationships that develop among the people of the American mountains and prairies.
Michael Martin Murphey’s mission is clear on Tall Grass and Cool Water: He wants people to fall in love with the American landscape and culture that defines what America is all about including the heritage of bluegrass and cowboy music.
