Michael Martin Murphey – Close To The Land

Michael Martin Murphey has created a music video for Close To The Land, the first from his Rural Rhythm release, Buckaroo Bluegrass.

The album was produced by Michael’s son Ryan, and features bluegrass-inflected acoustic versions of several of his most popular songs. Some of the top pickers and singers in our music helped out on this project, including Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, Rob Ickes, Rhonda Vincent, and Charlie Cushman.

Close To The Land is also used as the theme song for the television program, America’s Heartland, which airs on PBS and RFD-TV.
