I am a fan of the history of country music and like to celebrate all the great artists who are responsible for providing the fabric of county's tapestry of sounds. There have been so many influential pioneers and today marks the anniversary of the passing of one of the all time greats.
I have always been a big fan of the crooners. I love the old school vocalists who could really sing and Marty Robbins was one of the best at it. Marty had one of those voices that every singer wished he had. I interviewed Merle Haggard recently and he even told me that Marty may have been the best singer he had ever heard.
One of the greatest voices to ever grace country music was Marty Robbins. Marty was the ultimate country crooner. He could sing anything and just make your ears melt. He was born on this date in 1925 and was taken from us too soon in 1982 at the age of 57.
