      EVENT DETAILS
      James McMurtry

      with Bonnie Whitmore
      "The simple fact is that James McMurtry may be the truest, fiercest songwriter of his generation..."-Stephen King | Entertainment WeeklyAUSTIN, Texas James McMurtrys new single, State of the Union, is now available as a free download via his website www.jamesmcmurtry.com. The singular songwriters razor-sharp sociopolitical commentary surely will turn heads: My brothers a fascist, lives in Palacios, fishes the pier every night, the song opens. He holsters his glock in a double retention. He smokes while he waits for a bite. He dont like the Muslims. He dont like the Jews. He dont like the Blacks and he dont trust the news. He hates the Hispanics and alternative views. Hell tell you its tough to be white.Every region of the United States seems to have its own way of Anglicizing, or rather, Americanizing Spanish names, McMurtry explains. Theres a town called Palacios on the Texas coast. Texans pronounce it Palashuss, which just happens to kinda rhyme with fascist. While theres usually at least one in every town, I dont know for a fact that theres even one actual fascist residing in or near the town of Palacios, Texas. This song, like most of my songs, is a work of fiction. Any resemblance of any of my characters to actual persons, living or deceased, is just plain lucky.

      Cost: 27.50
