A Texas native, James McMurtry, has long been known as an astute, clear-eyed observer and concise,no-holds-barred chronicler of the human condition. These recent years have found James McMurtry's many skills steadily coalescing into an increasingly substantial, formidable whole: the voice, the tunes, the stories and the musicianship have become elementally interwoven to create the inimitable fabric of a distinct, singular artist who is determined to get to the heart of the matter, shake things up and do whatever it takes to make a difference. In his regular column for Entertainment Weekly, noted author (and passionate rock and roll enthusiast) Stephen King cited McMurtry as "the truest, fiercest songwriter of his generation."

You don't want to miss even one song of this concert so include the Bross Hotel B&B in your plans for the evening.  After the concert it's a short walk around the corner for a good night's sleep.  Then awake to the smell of coffee and the scrumptious breakfast Linda has prepared for you.  Call Linda for your reservation - 970-527-6776 and get your ticket NOW.  This will be a sell-out show!
