No artist in the history of country music has had a more stylistically diverse career than Marty Robbins. Never content to remain just a country singer, Marty performed successfully in a dazzling array of styles during more than thirty years in the business. To his credit, Marty rarely followed trends, but often took off in directions that stunned both his peers and fans. Plainly Marty Robbins was not hemmed in by anyone's definition of country music. Although his earliest recordings were definate weepers, by the mid-'50s Marty was making forays into rock music, adding fiddles to the works of Chuck Berry and Little Richard. By the late '50s, Marty had pop hits of his own with teen fare like "A White Sport Coat (And a Pink Carnation)." Almost simultaneously, he completed work on his Hawaiian Songs of the Islands album. In 1959, Marty Robbins stretched even further with the hit single "El Paso, " thus heralding a pattern of "gunfighter ballads" that lasted the balance of his career. Marty also enjoyed bluesy hits like "Don't Worry", which introduced a pop audience to fuzztone guitar in 1961. Barely a year later, Marty scored a calypso hit with "Devil Woman." Marty Robbins also left a legacy of gospel music and a string of sentimental ballads, showing that he would croon with nary a touch of hillbilly twang. [All-Music Guide].
