From the time Murle was in grade school, he was performing just about anywhere. At the tender age of 6 he was singing at the National Guard Armory in Clovis, New Mexico. Every Saturday morning he performed at the Sunshine Kiddies Show at KICA with Mac McAlister as radio announcer.

New Mexico and West Texas were the hot spots he sang most in his teenage years. These hot spots ranged from dances at Marshall High School, in Clovis, to local bars in West Texas. Murle was about a junior in high school when "Pop Echols" invited him to perform on his show.

In 1961 Murle wrote a Rockabilly beat number called "Mean and Cruel" and put it to a 45, which is now a Collectors item. Murle has fond memories of this record and the making of it, he is very glad to know that people out there enjoy it so much.

In 1974 Murle and his family recorded a Gospel album entitled "Soul in Flight" which aired in Clovis and surrounding areas at that time on KENM, now KSEL. Norman Petty recorded this Gospel album.

Today Murle has just released his new CD, Murle Richardson, from Rock to Rock. This CD ranges from "The Old Rugged Cross", "Keep It Standing," a patriotic song with a rockabilly beat to "I'm Missing You," a slower somber tune about missing your younger self.

This new CD that Murle is bringing to you comes with a gift, from his heart, a gift that is more powerful than one you can buy at any store, it is the gift of love, and the knowledge that Jesus is returning soon and he wants everyone to know it so they can be prepared for his return. This CD also offers more than Rockabilly and Patriotism; it offers music that you have not heard before. This is a must have CD.
