Marty Robbins. What a singer, comedian, and performer. Like I have said countless times before, I am a lover of old country music. Growing up Marty Robbins was constantly on, and lately that has only increased. He has one of my most favorite albums, Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs. Top to bottom, his music is entertaining, comforting and a joy to listen to. Oddly enough, I don’t find myself dancing to too many of his songs. They are more the type to sit around a fire and listen to together, if you know what I mean.
Anyhow, if you have never heard of him, I strongly encourage you to take a listen. He won’t be like anything you hear on the radio. Quite frankly, he wasn’t like all to many during his time either. Listen to the words too. More than others, I find the lyrics to be deliberate and not just used to finish a rhyme.
Here are my favorites of Marty Robbins, what are yours?
Top 5: Marty Robbins
Maybe not the song everyone would choose as their favorite Marty Robbins song, but this one has always topped my list.
The Cowboy in a Continental Suit
El Paso has to be one of the most well-known Marty Robbins song. And I do love it, but it doesn’t quite top my list. This is the song I had stuck in my head after my Out in West Texas post.
Just as I expected, this post was harder than it should have been to put together. But I love so many of his songs it was near impossible to narrow down. Looking forward to that next evening around the fire pit singing these ballads right next to Dad and Grandpa!
