Michael Martin Murphey Goes 'Home On The Range' To Save Landmark
April 27, 2011 at 7:54 AM (PT)
Country artist MICHAEL MARTIN MURPHEY is lending his support to a special benefit on THURSDAY, MAY 5th to raise funds to restore the historic home of the KANSAS State Song, “Home on the Range.”
Written in 1871 by Dr. BREWSTER HIGLEY, “Home on the Range,” may be the best-known AMERICAN cowboy song. HIGLEY’s cabin, known as the Home on the Range, is still standing in SMITH COUNTY but is badly in need of restoration.
MURPHEY, who recorded “Home On The Range,” on the album “Cowboy Songs,” will stage the benefit at the PRAIRIE ROSE CHUCKWAGON SUPPER, in BENTON, KANSAS, with all proceeds going to the restoration project.
