Cheyenne Frontier Days™ (CFD) and the City of Cheyenne will once again host the annual Fourth of July celebration with free live entertainment and fireworks at Frontier Park Arena. Headlining this year’s show is Michael Martin Murphey.
In the early 1970s, Rolling Stone Magazine called Michael Martin Murphey “one of the best songwriters in America.” Since that time, Murphey has left an indelible mark on the American Music Landscape crafting and recording such iconic hits as “Wildfire,” “Carolina In The Pines”, “Geronimo’s Cadillac”, “Cowboy Logic,” “Cherokee Fiddle”, “Boy From The Country” and more. In the process, he has topped the Pop, Country, Bluegrass and Western Music charts, earned six gold albums and multiple Grammy nominations.
In 2014, American Cowboy named Murphey among the Top 50 Best Country Western Singers of All Time, alongside such icons as Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Roy Rogers, Dale Evans and Gene Autry. One of America’s most respected songwriters, Murphey’s songs have been recorded by multiple artists including John Denver, Kenny Rogers, Cher, Lyle Lovett and The Monkees. He was inducted into the Texas Songwriters’ Hall of Fame and the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in 2009. He is also a member of the Nebraska Country Music Hall of Fame and the Colorado Country Music Hall of Fame.
The park opens at 5:30 p.m. Entertainment begins at 6:30 p.m. with opening act, the Country Club Band. Michael Martin Murphey will take the stage at 8 p.m., followed by the fireworks show at 9:35 p.m.
