"The simple fact is that James McMurtry may be the truest, fiercest songwriter of his generation..."
-Stephen King

That's right, James McMurtry, the son of acclaimed author Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove, Terms of Endearment), is coming to Miles City. McMurtry puts on a "must-see" powerhouse performance. 'The Washington Post' noted his live prowess: "Much attention is paid to James McMurtry's lyrics, and rightfully so: He creates a novel's worth of emotion and experience in four minutes of blisteringly stark couplets. What gets overlooked, however, is that he's an accomplished rock guitar player. At a sold-out Birchmere, the Austin-based artist demonstrated the raw power of wince-inducing imagery propelled by electric guitar. It was serious stuff, imparted by a singularly serious band."

It was a great turnout and a wild night. Miles City left a good impression on James; hopefully he'll be back.

Check out some photos from the show here: https://www.facebook.com/ConfluenceMT
