David Lee Murphy

 

David Lee Murphy (b. 1959) is a successful Nashville singer/songwriter (originally from Illinois).  He wrote the very fun and high energy song On A Mission for the trio Trick Pony.  Before being getting a record deal w/ Mercury in 1994, David co-wrote songs w/ Reba and Doug Stone.  David has also written songs for Aaron Tippin, Kenny Chesney, and Jason Aldean (Big Green Tractor: one of the young singer’s hits).   In 2003, he toured w/ Lee Roy Parnell and John Berry (one of my fave singers).  Another cool fact: we share the same birthday- JAN 7. 

His voice is pure, honest, and no-frills (he doesn’t need any).  Even people who don’t usually like country music can appreciate his sound;  there is NO sharp twang (accent) to this voice.  Instead, there is just something light (youthful; easygoing), smooth, and natural.   I would esp. recommend his songs if you like singers like Mark Chesnutt and Gary Allan.   One of David’s influences was Waylon Jennings; they wrote together shortly before Jennings died.
