Furgason Bravo! Series

Tickets available now for our 2016-2017 Gloria and Robert R. Furgason Bravo! Series for the Performing Arts featuring:

"Michael Martin Murphey's Cowboy Christmas Concert"
on Monday December 5, 2016 at 7:30p.m.


Part of the Furgason Bravo! Series and generously sponsored in part by Whataburger, Michael Martin Murphey, a self-professed Western history buff, brings the 25th anniversary of his treasured Cowboy Christmas show to TAMU-CC's Performing Arts Center on Monday December 5, 2016 at 7:30p.m.  He begins this year's tour in the historic old west town of Laramie, Wyoming, and the trail ends nearly a month later in Fort Worth, Texas.  Michael Martin Murphey’s Cowboy Christmas ® includes stops in five states — Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas beginning the day after Thanksgiving and ending in mid December.  Murphey, who is the top selling singer of American Cowboy Music in the world and best known for such hits as “Wildfire,” “Carolina In The Pines,” “Geronimo’s Cadillac,” “What’s Forever For,” and more, is a dedicated ambassador of Western culture, and the Christmas season is an important part of that tradition. 

His holiday concert tour explores the humanity and spirituality of the season. It delves into the American heritage of Christmas organically and universally. It strips down the highly commercial holiday to its bare essentials in an effort to present a richer, more rewarding experience for the audience.  
“What I try to do is encourage people to think of the spirit of giving, charity and forgiving, which is the spirit of Christmas,” Murphey says. “It’s not about cramming a Christmas message down people’s throats. It’s about delivering that beautiful message of Christmas for people.”
