The word 'legendary' and the word 'great' are overused in my opinion.

Someone can have a hit or two and immediately they're called 'a great artists' or 'a legendary singer'.

With that said, I proudly state that the late Marty Robbins was a great, legendary singer, songwriter, story teller.

2 Weeks after Marty's untimely death in 1982 from complications after cardiac surgery at the age of 57, the television show 'PM Magazine' ran this Marty Robbins retrospective, including Marty discussing his love of a certain kind (or 2) of music.

 

Now, sit back, relax and let Country Music Hall of Famer Marty Robbins take you on a trip to 'El Paso'.
