Russ Murphy dedicates song to Seagraves girl killed in texting accident

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -Christian music artist Russ Murphy just went to #1 on the national Christian music weekly charts. Friday night he performed in Lubbock, with a song that hits close to home for many on the South Plains.

The new song, called "Forever in my Heart", is dedicated to Alex Brown. Brown is the Seagraves High School Senior who died in a car accident in November when she was texting while driving.

Murphy never met brown, but he stayed up all night to write the song after he heard her story. "I saw the report on Channel 11, and it just broke my heart. You know, parents lost their daughter, and the school," said Murphy. 

Murphy will also give a copy of the song to each student at Seagraves High School.
