Michael Martin Murphey

Saturday, September 27, 2014, 7:30 p.m. Buy now.

Since Michael Martin Murphey's iconic Top Ten song"Wildfire" was released in 1975,
the American singer-songwriter has remained the country's top modern-day cowboy singer.
A multiple Grammy nominee, Murphey has six gold albums, including "Cowboy Songs,"
the first album of cowboy music to achieve gold status since Marty Robbins' "Gunfighter Ballads
And Trail Songs" in 1959. Some of his other hit singles include: "Carolina In The Pines,"
"Cherokee Fiddle," "Geronimo's Cadillac," "What's Forever For," "A Long Line Of Love,"
"Don't Count The Rainy Days," and "Cowboy Logic." Murphey is also the author of New Mexico's
state ballad, "The Land Of Enchantment," and has become a prominent musical voice for the
Western horseman, rancher, and cowboy. Opening act is Bristow's own Robert Maxwell Case.


Asleep At The Wheel

Saturday, December 20, 2014, 7:30 p.m. Buy now.


For some 44 years Asleep At The Wheel has been keeping the musical style of
western swing alive and fresh. If Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys were around today,
they would sound like this band. Bandleader Ray Benson and crew have accumulated
nine Grammy awards, released more than 20 studio albums, and have racked up more
than twenty singles on the Billboard country charts. You're likely hear the Playboys' classics
"San Antonio Rose" and "Take Me Back To Tulsa," fan favorites "Get Your Kicks On Route 66"
and "Miles And Miles Of Texas," and fresh takes on "Hot Rod Lincoln" and "The House Of
Blue Lights." And given the time of year, you may hear even a few Christmas tunes, because
Santa likes to boogie, too! Opening act is Bristow's own Prairie Grass.


About The Freeland Center

for the Performing Arts

The Freeland Center for the Performing Arts opened its doors March 28, 2009 with a concert

by two of Bristow's native sons, legendary folk singer-songwriter Tom Paxton and Red Dirt music icon

Tom Skinner. The $6.1 million theater was constructed through a combination of public and private

funding. It is a 795-seat facility, boasting outstanding concert hall acoustics, a 50 ft. x 50 ft. stage,

orchestra pit, and professional curtaining, lighting, and sound reinforcement. A spacious two-story

lobby, well-appointed with amenities, provides a welcome invitation to event attendees.

Local and national entertainers are pampered with two green rooms, easy on-off loading to the stage,

and an attentive professional staff.


Artists appearing during the Freeland Center's first four years have included gospel acts (Masters

Voice, The Isaacs, Jeff & Sheri Easter); country/Americana acts (Riders In The Sky, Red Dirt Rangers, Susie McEntire-Eaton,

Bruner & Eicher); jazz/pop acts (Emily Drennan, Jamie Aaron Kelley); and classical/opera acts (Bravo Brass

Quintet, The Tulsa Opera). Kostis Protopapas, artistic director of The Tulsa Opera, has called the Freeland

"the most acoustically-friendly auditorium in the state of Oklahoma."
