Although both parents were schoolteachers, he was an indifferent student. Murphy developed his musical style as a teenager in Southern Illinois. Instead of studying books, he studied the sounds of such “outlaw” country musicians as Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. He was also deeply influenced by southern rock bands such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers and ZZ Top.
Pursuing a career in music, Murphy moved to Nashville and spent years honing his craft as a songwriter. He also formed a band, The Blue Tick Hounds, and played the honkytonks of Middle Tennessee and clubs throughout the South.
“I really concentrated on my songwriting”, Murphy states. “I wanted to get better so I could record my own songs.” .
Murphy took a hiatus from recording in 2004, and has co-written several singles for other artists, including the hits “Living in Fast Forward” for Kenny Chesney, “Anywhere With You” for Jake Owen, “Big Green Tractor” for Jason Aldean, and “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not” for Thompson Square.
He has written songs for superstar artists like Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Hank Williams, Jr. and others!
