Singer/songwriter and recording artist Templeton Thompson called on the iconic Michael Martin Murphey to join her on her new song and music video “Ride a Wide Circle”.
“I couldn’t be more excited” says Thompson, “Michael Martin Murphey is one of my biggest musical heroes!” “I remember riding down Texas back roads, singing along to “Wildfire” and “Carolina In The Pines” so it’s pretty dang amazing to hear that iconic voice singing along with me on this record!
“The fact that he’s in the music video with me is just almost surreal!”
Thompson is a long-time Nashville songwriter whose songs have been recorded by Reba McEntire, Little Texas and JoDee Messina and a host of others. “I spent the first few years of my career in Nashville writing songs for other artists. Actually, I still do, but for the last several years, my focus has been recording my own albums and touring.”
Thompson’s previous music video “When I Get That Pony Rode” was well received and spent 8 consecutive weeks in GAC’s fan-voted Daily Countdown show.
“Ride a Wide Circle” is from Thompson’s “hippie chic cowgirl” album slated for release this Summer.
