JIM MURPHY - The First New Jersey Artist Inducted Into Old Time Country Music Hall Of Fame!
In recognition of his nearly 45-year involvement in the traditional country music realm, singer-songwriter Jim Murphy was inducted into “America's Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame” on August 28, 2007 in Missouri Valley, Iowa. Murphy is the first artist from New Jersey to be recognized by the NTCMA, which has been inducting deserving artists since 1976. Songwriting has been a hallmark of Murphy’s work. In 1998 he took home four awards from the Traditional Music Association including Album of the Year. His latest recording, Go New Jersey, is devoted entirely to people, places and events in his beloved home state, with “Garden State Waltz” receiving wide airplay as a single.

Whether or not you live in New Jersey, "Go New Jersey" makes a treasured gift for both young and old alike. It will take you on an enjoyable musical excursion through the Garden State. If you have relocated from New Jersey but still take nostalgic trips back, "Go New Jersey" gives you that 'Welcome Home' feeling. If you're searching for a unique, completely original gift for the children or grand children "Go New Jersey" has been field tested and ranks Number One with the young folks. Included with the CD, is an eight page booklet of liner notes which take you on a musical journey through the Garden State. It brings to life the people, the historical places and the stirring events that have created the rich body of folklore that is the 'Garden State so Grand'. Songs about our "Jersey Blue" the regiment that fought couragiously in the War for Independence...you'll be surprised how they got the name, 'Jersey Blue'. "Run Molly Run" sings the praises of our own Molly Pitcher who achieved immortality by her heroic deeds at the Battle of Monmouth. Her real name will be a surprise, for sure. Listen to tales about the original inhabitants of this land, the "Lenni-Lenape" Indians. Take a musical journey through lighthouses, find pirate treasure buried centuries ago. Enjoy a tribute to our own USS Battleship New Jersey,'Big J'. You can "Polka in the Pines" or dance to the beautiful "Garden State Waltz". Fans are exclaiming,"Make it the State Song!"

All songs are original, played in the Traditional Americana music style. Jim Murphy & The Pine Barons have achieved Award Winning status for their recordings. In 1998 they were acclaimed the 'Traditional Country Music Assn. Band of the Year'. Additional Awards gained The Pine Barons recognition as the number one bluegrass band in New Jersey. A musical career of 35 plus years has brought delight to concert goers all around the tri-state area. Their snappy treatment of country classics, bluegrass standards and original material keep concert crowds coming back for more of their uniquely up-beat style. The Two Rivers Times called them, ..."pure Americana. The Great State of New Jersey is damn lucky to have Jim Murphy & The Pine Barons."

A taste of home for the holidays
We love the CD. Heard it at a concert and wanted to share the music with friends who have moved out of state.
