For the 13th consecutive year award-winning Michael Martin Murphey, "singing cowboy poet" returns to the Coastal Bend with his unique “Cowboy Christmas Concert.” Murphey is not only the number one, best-selling singer/songwriter of American Cowboy Music, he's one of the world's most respected singer/songwriters in the Pop and Country-Western field. In May, 1975 Murphey’s story song, "Wildfire," reached No. 1 on the Radio and Records charts, No.3 on Billboard's Pop Chart, and No. 1 on all Adult Contemporary Charts, giving the artist vast commercial exposure. Michael broke ground with an innovative concert concept called "Cowboy Christmas" in 1987 which has become a trademarked touring show and musical concept for him. The tour now spans many cities per holiday season, and has led to three Cowboy Christmas albums and a Cowboy Christmas DVD.  This concert is funded in part by Whataburger and the City of Corpus Christi Arts & Cultural Commission.

Famed musician Jimmy Dorsey was born in 1904 in Pennsylvania. When they were only teenagers, Dorsey and his younger brother, Tommy, formed Dorsey's Novelty Six, later known as Dorseys' Wild Canaries. During the 1920s, both brothers worked in various bands and as freelance and studio musicians, mostly in New York City. Jimmy Dorsey later led the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, which scored hit singles like "Contrasts," "Amapola," "Tangerine," "Green Eyes" and "Maria Elena." The Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra has continued successfully touring the country. Nancy Knorr, the lead singer with the Pied Piper’s, became the featured vocalist with the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra. With the elegance and sound of the 1940’s, Nancy will recreate a tribute to the legendary Helen O’ Connell with her own style and vocal ease.
