(Bosom) Friend Fridays: Charlie Hardin Murphey

Friday, August 12th, 2011

I have this list of “favorite” friends – not necessarily “closest” friends, but the ones who, without fail, make my world happier whenever I see them.

Charlie Murphey is one of those friends.

I mean, look at him.  A V-neck cardigan with nothing underneath.  If you know Charlie, you know OF COURSE HE WOULD.

I got to know Charlie when I lived in Nashville, and all of Nashville can attest to the fact that it’s impossible to not love him.

Trust me – I tried.  It didn’t work.

Besides being funny, loyal, and the perfect blend of sarcastic/sincere, this bearded-wonder has probably my favorite voice in all the land.  He is pure talent, and while a lot of singer-songwriters are lost on me, Charlie just can’t be.

Under the name Charlie Hardin, he’s currently raising money for a new record, and I wouldn’t point you toward him unless I loved his songs so much.  If you have a few extra bucks to pledge toward this project, he’s offering some sweet rewards.  I wish I had $5,000, because I would really enjoy a theme song for all things Hooker House.

I also wish I had $5,000 because, hey – free money.
