Justifiably in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the brilliant songwriter, Marty Robbins had an abundance of crossover Pop success. Robbins’ soft handed story telling ability had an appealing charm that garnered him many fans. What is forgotten is just how versatile Marty Robbins was, as he could “rock” out with the best of them when he wanted to and a look at his overall library of music is actually quite diverse. It is not impossible to think that the next Country flavored star could be Mr. Robbins.
