James McMurtry

James McMurtry, the son of writer Larry McMurtry — best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning, miniseries-inspiring novel Lonesome Dove — is an Americana singer-songwriter with a chip on his shoulder. His songs, beginning with those on his stellar 1989 début Too Long in the Wasteland, are writerly and sprawling meditations on American decay. He tells the stories of the forgotten and challenges the status quo with a calm and precise fire, in the great tradition of folkies like Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie. But, unlike Guthrie, he also rails against the sedative power of superficial religious belief and doesn’t await the second coming as some magical Deus ex Machina in the great American drama.

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
