Peaceful Country
"Peaceful Country — My wife and I recently moved back to the mountains of Colorado. It wasn’t easy. We both live very busy lives, and I began to see this as a parable about what all lovers are trying to get back to. Something of a quieter, peaceful existence where they are doing things on a daily basis they are passionate about. I tour so much that going home is my vacation, so I try to live in vacation places." Michael Martin Murphey

"With its lively banjo and fiddle work and Murphey’s rapid-fire choruses, his affection for bluegrass is represented on the spry opener “Peaceful Country,” about a longtime couple making a rural escape to rekindle their romance. He covers similar topical territory with a contemplative country approach on “New Old Love.” NEWSOK
