I had the rare privilege of meeting Marty Robbins twice in my life. The first time was at the colorado State Fair, and at that time I did not know how to play the guitar. Three years later I was the lead singer in the opening act for Marty at the City Auditorium in Colorado Springs, Colorado. During a break in his program, while I was on watching him from behind the curtains, he came over a stood next to me and we talked. I was so scared I didn't know what to say, but he made me feel like we had been friends forever. I Still have the program and more than that, in Marty's words, "Some Memories Just Won't Die". God Bless Marty Robbins!

Good to see that your web-site is still up and running, brilliant as before. Have you gotten any new MR promoters/fans in old Scandinavia?

Hope you are well and healthy, Helen, and that you are doing well as before! How 'bout your son? I never learned anything about his venture.

Dear Helen,
Thankyou so much. I was born in 1953 and my earliest memories are from the wonderful gunfighter ballads, white sports coat and story of my life my older brother bought. i was so thrilled recently to get a cd of marty's and to have my 24 year old son have the same enjoyment i have. His son ronny has so much of his dad's voice in his singing. does he ever do any of his father's songs now?
Many thanks

Love Marty's songs and western style, never got to see him. In 2000 I finally made it to Nashville and got my picture taken with the lifesize standup of Marty at the museum next to the Grand Ole Opry. I bought one of his cd's at the Opryland Hotel and the cashier said he was one of the most popular artist they sell. Nice Website. Thanks Thanks Marty for the memories

Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for the loving tributes to Marty, my father, and grandmother.
I am Charlie's son and it is very touching to see that you mentioned him. I only met Marty once, but he was a great source of pride to our family and his influence continues to inspire us all.
While Marty, Lillie, and Mamie all struggled in life, so have I and my immediate family, but like Marty I have kept the faith and a good outlook, and am happy to say I'm doing quite well.
Thank you so much to all of the fans here, and please help keep Marty's memory alive. Feel free to write me anytime.

Dear Helen,
I was 6 when my older brother brought home the more gunfighter ballads album. I knew every song and sadly it took 40 years to hear them again. I quickly searched the internet and showed my son the songs I loved and grew up with. He was so happy for me. Marty sounds as lovely a persons as his voice seems to portray. Maybe because I began my love for his music early that I have a softer spot for his more gunfighter ballads album. I do hope you can still keep the webpage up. I had trouble connecting the links. So many thanks Helen.
Cheers
Annie

Marty Robbins songs make me home sick. I live in San Antonio now but was raised in El Paso. His songs are most fitting. You see, I never met my Grandfather. I only knew stories of him from my Grandma (Who I Adored and passed on in 2001 at the age of 99!). She use to always tell me Grandpa loved Marty Robbins especially "El Paso". Grandpa was a cattleman and a rancher. He died in 1959 in a truck wreck carrying his cattle from Mexico into Texas just right outside of El Paso 4 years before I was born. "El Paso" is a fitting song. Everytime I hear "El Paso" I get teary eyed for a man I never met but Love anyhow. Marty Robbins is a connection to him. In tribute to the Grandfather I never met but am sure would have loved me and never met me, I listen to all that is Marty Robbins.

Honestly now, have you ever heard another singer give you chills up your back like Marty can? No! I tell you, besides the popular songs like my favorite "El Paso", some of my favorite songs were on his "R.F.D." and "Devil Woman" albums. Come on now, doesn't "Kinda Halfway Feel" and "She Means Nothing To Me Now" just make you smile? You bet! I recently bought a system to take my LP's and burn them into CD's through my computer. It was the best $250 I ever spent. I highly suggest it. I've about worn out my Marty records, so with this system I can take all the scratches and hiss out and it sounds like he's right in the room singing! Super great site, Helen! Thank You for your dedication to Marty's memory.

My dad Ed use to play in downtown Phoenix with Mary Robbins. My dad played the drums and my Aunt Beverly's first husband Fritz also played in his band. Does anyone out there know anymore about this time? It would of been in the 1950's. My dad and his brothers went to school with the Robbins kids as well. My dads name was Ed Cox, brothers were Lloyd and Floyd Cox, Wayne Cox and Carlton (Corky) Cox. My father has since died back in 1991 but this is something he use to talk about a great deal. The song "Mr. Shorty" was written about my father as well.

If you can provide me with any information it would be appreciated so that I can share it with my children about their grandfather.

Thank you

It has been a long time since I have signed this outstanding guestbook on a man who has contributed so much to country music. I am a 20 year old totally blind boy and I have been a huge Marty Robbins fan for a long long time. There is no other true country singer like Marty who can really put so much feelingg in a song. I can play the piano like Floyd Cramer and I love singing also. My other favorite artists are Eddy Arnold, Gene Autry who Marty admired, Ernest Tubb, Jim Reeves, Little Jimmie Dickens who helped Marty get a record contract, the Louvin Brothers and so many other great legends. Even though Marty died before I was born, he will always be alive with his music and legacy. I would love to hear from other fans out there who has a collection of albums by Marty one in particular is an album he did which contains a tribute song he did to Gene Autry. I have never heard this song and would love to hear it sometime! God bless and I will really look forward to hearing from you! Sincerely, Maheen.

I have been a Marty Robbins fan(atic) for as long as I can remember. I remember the day he died like it was yesterday and oh how I cried ......and cried. Even now it tearsme up when I here one of his songs. There is never a C&w singer/songwriter like him and there never will be. He was and still is THE BEST. Like you, and many other Marty fans I dont believe he got or is getting the recognition that he deserves. He was too great a man to be mistreated the way he has been over the years. I love him in life and even now. I am presently trying to put together a collection of all his songs, hope I'll be successful. My one major regret is that he died without ever visiting the beautiful island of Jamaica. That was my dream that one day he would visit and perform there. I still have his music and thats a great comfort. It's my hope that somewhere in the near future Martin David Robinson will be properly recognized as well as he should.

But like most, i really enjoyed the cowboy songs. There were many partys at which i would sit between my Dad and his treasured Hofner (Guitar),me on one knee and the Hofner on the other and you guessed it i would always ask Dad for the songs of Marty Robbins namely the titles you have on your page. Growing up i was never very far from either my Dad or one of Marty Robbins albums of which i have owned a fair few due to someone else wanting the said albums or spilt drinks no matter. I have since upgraded to the CD versions with a master copy of all my real favourites tucked away. You have a great page i enjoyed it immensly. Thanks for reviving the memories. Cheers Dave

Marty Robbins has greatly influenced my career. I currently include four of Marty'w hits in my hour long program. El Paso, Don't Worry, A White Sportcoat and Big Iron. Everywhere I perform, I am asked if I have a CD with these songs for sale. I am told I sound just like Marty. I would like to record and sell a CD with these songs on it. Have you any ideas as to who I could contact that might be interested in helping me to do this. Roy Donnelly.

This e-mail is to Ronnie Robbins. About 3 yrs. ago I sent you a CD where I had changed the words to your dads song Big Iron, and made it a song about Xena and her sidekick Gabrielle. I appreciate you asking your mother to listen to it. You'll remember she didn't care for the show and I don't blame her, she was right to say no to the idea.
Sorry to hear she passed away. I have a song now though she might have liked. Do you remember the song, UP ON THE ROOF. Well I changed the words to make it a gospel song. I haven't tried recording it yet. I would like to know what you think of the lyrics first. Here it is:

WHEN THIS OLD WORLD STARTS GETTING ME DOWN
AND SATAN IS JUST TOO MUCH FOR ME TO FACE
I RAISE MY HANDS AND I PRAY TO THE LORD
AND ALL MY FEARS JUST LIFT UNDER HIS GRACE
IN HIS GRACE I'M SAFE AS I CAN BE
THE DEVIL DOWN BELOW CAN'T BOTHER ME
LET ME TESTIFY
WHEN I COME HOME FEELING TIRED AND BEAT
I PRAY TO HIM MY SOUL FOR HIM TO KEEP
HE LET'S ME KNOW THAT HE LOVES ME SO
AND JUST LIKE THAT MY HEART IS FULL OF PEACE
IN GOD'S GRACE THE ONLY PLACE I KNOW
WHERE YOU JUST HAVE TO PRAY TO SAVE YOUR SOUL
YOU KNOW JESUS IS PROOF
HE GAVE HIS LIFE THAT DAY ON CALVARY
SO THAT HIS BLOOD COULD SAVE BOTH YOU AND ME
I'M JUST A TELLING YOU
GOD SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON
TO TELL US OF A LIFE THAT TROUBLE PROOF
AND WHEN THIS WORLD STARTS GETTING YOU DOWN
THERE'S ROOM ENOUGH FOR YOU UNDER GOD'S ROOF
JESUS IS PROOF
OH COME ALL PEOPLE
OH COME ALL SINNERS
GOD WILL MAKE IT ALRIGHT
OH YES HE WILL
OH YES HE WILL

Hi fans. Marty had a special place in my memory too as I first met him here in Australia when he made a three state tour around 1966. I was a Country Music DJ on top rating 4BC Brisbane who ran a highly successful network Country show to 28 radions in New South Wales and Queensland.

I was fortunate in being hired by the promoters to manage his Queensland state tour of 4 major centres. Henece, I got to know Marty and his band well. We were six days on the road and I voiced the intros on each local show.

We met again in 1968 when I was invited to represent Australia at the annual CMA disc jockey convention in Nashville. I ended up staying nearly 9 months as I won a job on the new WSM FM station in Nashville.At the convention we had a few beers and he introduced me to his son who was be debuted at the convention.

I was really saddened when I learnt of his death. We're all getting old I guess!

My husband had to be the greatest Marty Robbins admirer of all time. He learned to play the guitar in Mexico during a break in the service and sang and played Marty Robins' songs to near perfection. He said the reason he liked them so well, was they told a story. I think he must have had every single LP and tape Marty ever made.

We joined friends on Saturday nights to play and sing, and rarely a Saturday night went by that someone didn't ask him to sing "El Paso", while I liked his follow-up, "El Paso City", which finished the story. I had many favorites "Man Walks Among Us", and the list goes on.

Like Marty, he has passed on, too. His last Christmas my son presented him with a CD made from the many tapes I had made of him, and like Marty's tapes, a treasure.

I wish that I could had seen him in person but I never got the chance. He was the greatest country singer of all time. I still listen to his music to this day.

Hi Helen.I just found this sight by accident and I am glad that I did. I think Martin David Robbinson is one of the people that I can say I really and truly love.When he passed away,it took me, this no joke,years, before I could listen to one of his songs without crying.And I just found out about Marizona, and now they are together in Heaven, and every thing is as it should be.There is just something about Marty. This may be wrong but I loved ,and still do, Marty more than my father.

I cannot believe that the songs I heard and tried to mimic/sing when I was much younger are songs by Marty Robbins. Then, I never knew who he was, I just loved his music that I heard from my cousin,s old grammophones but now listening to him while working in my computer, I cannot stop listening. I am so carried away that I have to force myself to stop. The way he creates music with some interesting stories and his wonderful voice. I want to hear him pronouce the words he pronouces so clearly its increadible.

I enjoyed your comments, especially about "Don't Worry". Every morning when I start to work,I select that song on my CD player and crank up the volume almost wide open. I think you hit the nail on the head when you said that the song touches your spirit. I am an electronics nut, also, and I really appreciate the way that the "fuzz" sound was recorded by a blown fuze for the channel carrying the lead guitar. I love everything about that song!
I also lived in El Paso for about 17 years off and on, and could also listen to Marty's El Paso all day long.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and feelings on your website.

I tried the Ernest tubb record store for the song" If there's still another mountain" by Marty but they didn't have any record of it. Evidently it was just on that one album he made in 1973. But I did get a responce from the message I left on your message board. A nice guy who was Marty's neighbor found it for me.Thanks Dave. Dave has had many good things to tell me about Marty and I have enjoyed his emails. Talking about what a wonderful person Marty was as well as his wonderful voice and personality.Marty was really loved by all who lived in his community. Will be back to visit soon. Take care.

Helen, I don't know if you remember me or not. You put on the website about Miss Lilly's birthday and I sent her a card. (Her birthday was the same as my twin boys and little girl that had died) I talked to you a couple of times in April or May of 2000, just after we both had gotten new cars. We talked about my Mother and I going to see Ronnie, in July 1999, 1 day before his 50th birthday, and how sweet he was to show us around his offices, posed with us for pictures, gave us some free pictures and stuff and even walked us to the car when we left. It was the most wonderful visit, he made us feel so special.
Also, after Miss Lilly passed away, her friend wrote me a letter and included the obituary notice from the paper to let me know. She said that Miss Lilly had talked about me several times, to her, and about me having a litttle girl and a set of twins born on her birthday and about me being such a big fan of her sweet brothers. I was really touched that she was so thoughtful to keep my name and information and remembered what I had wrote to her. I told my Mama that it just showed there truly are wonderful people in this world and it made me love everything about Marty Robbins even more. Well, my Mama passed away March 19th and I stayed with her and took care of her the last couple of months of her life. Everyday I would put in some of Marty's videos or CDs and she would close her eyes and listen. She loved his music so much that she even wanted "With his hand on my shoulder" and "Little spot in heaven" played at her funeral. And we did. Carol

Congratulations on your efforts to honor this special performer and gentleman. We were hoping to find some of the lyrics to Marty's and other country & western performers songs.. Mark plays the guitar and sings. For the past 45 years he has copied the lyrics of songs into a special book, but while singing at a recent 50th class reunion, it was lost. Does anyone know where we can get just the lyrics like they used to record in the old Hit Parader magazine? We have a single copy left after all these years and it has only one song Mark sings, "A Litty Bitty Tear" by Burl Ives. If anyone emails us, please put "country music" in the subject line. Keep up the good work. Thanks. M & C

I first started singing Marty's songs in 1953. I had just enlisted in the Air Force and was stationed at Wichita Falls, Tx for aircraft mechanic school. I didn't have a guitar but another guy had one he couldn't play very well, so all the guys wanted me to play and sing. They sure bought alot of beer to hear "After You Leave Me". I really liked Marty's style - the way he held a note - long after other singers had let it go. I tryed it and liked it. I can't go high like Marty could but I try.
The one and only time I got to see Marty was in Panama City, Fla. I think it was in 1964. I have seen several other big stars but, Marty was the only one to sound in person like he did on his records. He blew my wife away - She was almost spell bound. She kept saying "I didn't know he sang that" and "I didn't know he sounded so great". What a wonderful show he put on. It was a sad day when we lost Marty, but his music still lives on.

Please feel free to stop by and listen to some songs by Erin Hay. She sings traditional country... and does it proud! Be sure and sign the guestbook. :o) Her version of "Don't Worry 'Bout Me" is really good. "Thanks for keeping it Country" Keep up the great work on your site!!

My father was the ultimate Marty fan. We would listen to Marty on the radio on Saturday night. Marty was usually called back to the stage for a few more songs. He loved it, and we did too! My father died in July 2002, the Pastor read the first few verses of the Master's Call. So, I grew up listening to the songs of Marty Robbins. It was great!! Thanks for the memories!

Very good page; for a while I thought that I was the only one to feel glad at having heard Marty's music and so sad to hear of his death.

Having been a fan of Marty since I was a teenager in the 60s I was very happy to find that, via AMAZON (US section) I am now able to replace my worn out records with CDs from all over the USA and also to have access to stuff that I'd never heard.

Chet Atkins, Jim Reeves, Roy Orbison, Marty and many more have gone, but at least we have their musical legacy.

Thanks again for a great site.

Simply great...As a youngster I was allowed to stay up late on Sat. nights to hear The Opry from WSM. And, as with you, the first time I heard Marty, I was also hooked. I believe the year was '52 or '53. Wish I had some contributions for your site, but all I have are most all of Marty's records and a ton of memories. I'm sure Marty would really appreciate the work you have done in his honor. Some Memories Just Won't Die!

I reside in Australia and had the great fortune of meeting Marty when he visited our wonderful country. I always adored his western music particularly how he kept alive the great music of two of his idols the late Bob Nolan and Gene Autry. I have a very large collection of Marty's recordings going back to his first recordings around 1951-although it will be twenty years on December 8, 2002 since he left us his memory never fades and he will always be sadly missed.

"The Chair", I believe the name of the album is "Today". Could you tell me how I may get a copy of this albums? The last time he was in Birmingham, my mother took one of her sisters, and said I could go the next time he came. But the next time never came. It would mean alot to me to find this record. The cover has Marty on the front with his one of his racecars.

Hi, great site about a truly great singer.

I'm a writer who is also a fan and one of Marty's songs has me pondering- namely, El Paso City.

My book has a section dealing with reincarnation- in the above song Marty seems to speak about a past life experience as a cowboy. Was this just a poetic contrivance or did Marty half or wholly believe it?

Anyone out there know?

Perhaps he was laid to rest at Concordia Cemetary near John Wesley Hardin. The decendents of Felena are everywhere; sirens tempting the cowboy in us all to willingly take the wrong trail for just a few moments of their time. I truly enjoy your site. Unfortunately, I was not able to take advantage of the Trilogy due to the type of media player I have.

It's awesome. Thanks Helen for sharing Marty's story with us.

While at the fair, we found out that he was performing. We were all very surprised and figured that it was sold out. Lucky for us the concert was held outdoors, and it had been raining for quite a while. We thought the concert would be cancelled. We were wrong. That concert was one of the best I have ever attended. He was a consumate performer. He always had time for his fans(even in the middle of a song).He posed for numerous pictures and signed tons of autographs. I will never forget that concert. He died the next year. I felt privilaged to see him one more time. He had one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard.

Dear Helen
I just sent a note to someone about your web page on Marty. I thought I was sending it to you but come to think of it I think she was "rosegal". Does that sound familiar or did I really goof. Anyhow thanks for the great website. I have been a lover of Marty Robbins music for many years. He was an exceptional talent and He will be missed for a long, long time.

I am new to your site but would like to thank you for helping to keep alive the name of one of the all time great American singers. I purposely refrain from calling him a Country singer because he was so much more. Allied with his wonderful song writing, which was just as versatile as his vocal talent, the combination made Marty a unique star in the music industry.
Two records I have in my collection are 'Ever since my baby went away' by Jack Greene, and 'Jimmy and me' by Bobby Sykes, are two lovely country weepers. Both written by Marty, but sadly he never recorded them. When Bear Famiy first made the recordings of 'Long, Long Ago', 'Just before the battle mother', and 'Reach for me', available, I couldn't believe Columbia had left them languishing in their vaults. I believe Long, Long ago' is sung so beautifully it should have been released as a single.
I would also like to mention Don Edwards, and thank him for his continuing championing of Marty's music.
His latest album 'Kin to the Wind' is an excellent tribute, and he rarely fails not to include a Robbins original in his albums.
If I could select an album of Marty's' (Sony take note) I would choose,
1 YOURS
2 CAMELIA
3 LONELY TOO LONG
4 SEPTEMBER IN THE RAIN
5 GHOST TRAIN
6 MOTHER WAS A LADY
SIDE TWO
1 I HEARD THE BLUE BIRDS SING
2 I GUESS I'LL BE GOING
3 SWEET LIES
4 SOUTHERN DIXIE FLYER
5 LAST NIGHT ABOUT THIS TIME
6 LONG, LONG AGO
I have deliberately not gone for obvious titles and
wonder if any other Marty fans can come up with a 12 track listing.

Hi,

We went out today but there was no marker although it looked like there might be a grave site there and they just don't have up a marker yet. It was sad as usual and there weren't any flowers, nothing at all anymore, just the flat marker. I must take some flowers out.

Hope things are going well with you. Sounds like you had been pretty busy. I haven't been doing much. I have to have a total knee replacement and have kept putting it off. I just don't want to go through all the pain and physical therapy.

Great page. I'm a singer and guitarist, forever hooked on Marty robbins since I was supposed to be playing the Beatles' music-instead I was a 13 year old in the early 60's playing country and Western. I'm still playing it today. I love all the various facets of MR's too-short career, from the early rockabilly to the Hawaiian stuff to the Western ballads. There's one cut I've nvever heard (and I have dozens of hours of Marty music) and that's "At the end of a long lonely day". I've only heard it by Don Edwards. Where does this song exist in print? Is it on a CD?

I sincerly believe that Marty was the best singer/songwriter of the country/western genre. I remember back when I was a kid not even in my teens singing along with Marty. He was able to touch my feelings back then and i've carried it al;ong for 40+ years now. I do truly love Marty's music. I never had the opportunity to see Marty live but I did get the chance to meet him twice, both times at the Nashville Airport when I was comming home on leave for the Christmas holidays. The first time my dad (gone now too, but he was a great Marty fan) was also able to shake his hand and tell him what a great singer he was. All this time has passed, I'm a dad now. I have a son and we listen to "cowboy Songs" of course they are Marty's songs. Our favorite for a while is "Utah Carol", when I start singing it he joins in with me wherever we are. I like to think that he will carry these memories with him as he grows older and sings "Cowboy Songs" to his kids. To quote one of Marty's song lyrics "some memories just won't die", Thanks for the Memories Marty!!!

Hi there Helen!

How have you been doing? It has been a long time since we have corresponded. I want to tell you Helen that this wonderful web site of yours is getting better and better everyday and I think that the stories that I have been reading on this site are beautiful. Like I told you before Helen it is very rare for a 16 year old boy like me to appreciate Martin's music. Believe me, I have been a long time fan of his and I thank my father for introducing me to him. He is also a huge fan of Marty Robbins and the first song that my father ever played to me was "El Paso". When I heard that beautiful voice I was hooked. Like you and all the other fans, his music truly touches my heart and it is ashame that I didn't even get to see him in consert or meet him in person. He died two years before I was born and I wish I could hear him talk and hear his sense of humour especially.

Recently, I bought a great CD by Martin called "Super Hits" which has 10 songs on it and I love them all very much. I highly recommend that great CD for any true Marty Robbins fan! My favorite song out of that CD is "You Gave Me A Mountain". I am hoping to get the box set "Under Western Skies" very soon.

Helen, I Emailed you a few weeks ago, but I don't know whether you got it because you never replied back. I remember you sending me a message saying that you have a new address, but I don't think you did send it though. If I sent that message to your other address, you probably never got it. I would certainly love to hear from you again. I will be home all this week Helen because I'm down with a terrible cold. So you can Email me at my hotmail address because my other one is all messed up at the moment and it's going to take a while for me to get it up and running again.

Well, you take good care as always Helen and especially to all the fans also. God bless you all and let's all keep Martin's music and his fame alive.

I grew up with Marty Robbins. My dad is a great fan and referred me to this site. From the age of 3 Dusty Winds was a favorite . Dad would play his Marty every Sunday and then some. Even now almost forty years later he's still the most dedicated fan that I know. Your web site is great and it gives dad endless pleasure. Thank you for this dedication of a man that has left wonderful memories to our family. I will certainly be coming back time to time to read more.

Well I finally made it back here to sign the guess book. I had tried twice before but then I got hooked after I found another Marty song so signing was secondary :-). You have a great site and it's one of the best. I've learnt a lot about Marty that I never knew or thought possible and like yourself I was a big fan of country when country wasnt cool. Here in the Caribbean (Barbados), Reggea, Rap, Dub and Alternative is the thing but on hearing Marty's music on my fathers casettes about 15 years ago I was hooked. Unlike most young men (23 years) I cant stand alternative or anything else since listening to country.

Entertaining is not the word for this type of music. Influential is more like it. I could write forever to try to explain what I mean and it wouldnt be enough, so thanks for this great site and keep up the good work.

P.S. I never knew Marty was that far back as in born in 1925 etc WOW !!!

Helen, love the site - you did a great job!
Marty was one of the greatest singers there has ever been in country music and - he still is.
During my years as Jerry Lee Lewis' lead guitarist, it was my privilege to work with Marty. It was only for one time, but it was memorable. This was during the cut of "The Greatest Live Show on Earth" with Jerry Lee at the Municipal Auditorium in Birmingham Alabama. Not only was the performance memorable, but the time we had backstage as we got to know one another was tops. The second time we met was in 1971 in Las Vegas at the Golden Nugget. Marty was headlining there and we (Jerry Lee and band) were playing at the International Hotel where we cut "Live at the International". He came to the International to take our show in. We just talked over old time from the Greatest Live Show. Marty was one of a kind and will always be missed.
Come by and visit me.

Marty Robbins has always been my all time favorite as well as my husbands. When we were dating in the late 50's, Marty came to eastern oregon on tour and performed at the local armory with his new single, A White Sport Coat. I have nearly all his songs and he only grew more fantastic as he aged. He died much too young and I taped his later Opry shows where he captivated the audiences with his teasing and charisma. No performer could follow him and Roy Acuff would insist he be the final act.
We all cried for days when he died, though he lives on and on with his wonderful voice.

Well Hello there Marty Robbins fans!

I would like to say that I am a huge Marty Robbins fan! I am 15 years old and I am a blind boy, I love Marty's songs so much! I have been a fan of him now all my life, he is truly the greatest singer in country music. He puts so much feeling into his songs, I'll tell you I love him so much!

I was born on September 16th 1984 in Sri Lanka. That is where all of our family comes from. In 1989 my parents and I moved to Canada before returning back to Canada in 1998. In 1996 we actually moved to England for two years and then finally in 1998 we moved back to Canada for good hopefully! We are staying in Mississauga which is a city in Ontario. In 1989 when we were living in Canada, we stayed in Brampton which is also in Ontario.

As a boy I loved listening to country music very much! Marty Robbins was in fact the very first person who I started listening to and I'll tellyou, I was such a big fan of him from then on! After hearing his ever popular "Elpaso", I was hooked into his music! I started buying his CD's and now I have four of them. They are "A Life Time Of Song 1951-1982", "Gun Fighter Balads And Trail Songs", "16 Biggest Hits" and "Super Hits". Now I know that there are three fabulous box sets of Marty Robbins which I don't have at all, but I'm hoping to get them very soon. I can play the piano like the great Floyd Cramer. I love Floyd's style so much and I have been playing now since I was 3 years old. Now I'm quite an expert at the piano! I can also sing and I love singing Marty's songs very much! I have said this and I'll stick to it, Marty Robbins, Jim Reeves and Eddy Arnold have one of the most beautiful voices in country music. I love them so much and that is why they are my all time favorites especially Martin! There won't be another Martin again! So if anyone out there who sounds like Martin, persue it! We need sombody like you to come along! The thing is, all this new country isn't even country at all! I mean look at these people like Garth Brooks and Shania Twain, they aren't even country at all! I don't know what's going on with the country music industry, but the people nowadays don't even realize what country is really all about! I much prefer the older country like Martin! I don't listen to this rap junk either! It is horrible, stupid and a load of garbage! It STINKS! These rappers aren't even saying anything in their songs at all! It drives me nuts to hear other people listening to that rubbish because it is not a good influence on young children at all! Not at all!

I would like to thank Helen Shields so much for letting me know about this honourable web site! It really means a lot to me and Helen is certainly a very easy going person and a real sweetheart. I am so thankful for her, believe me! Thank you so much Helen for sharing all these wonderful stories about Martin with us. We really appreciate it and it means a lot to us! If there wasn't a web site on Marty Robbins, there wouldn't have even been a Marty Robbins! So thank you all very very much for making this possible for all of us, we really appreciate it. I hope that everyone of you will continue to buy his records and relive those wonderful memories that you had with him.

My address is:
2334 Mississauga Road
Mississauga

L5H 2L1.

Thank you so much Marty! We all love you!

Sincerely, Maheen Wickramasinghe.

i was a staff writer for famous music in nashville when songwriting legend gary s. paxton invited me to go backstage with him at the opry. i had the chance to meet most of the big opry stars. marty had been and still is my favorite singer. instead of collecting autographs and having pictures taken with the stars i used my opportunity wisely. i had the greatest stars in nashville tell me their favorite mary robbins story. shouldn't tell this but when i asked bill anderson if he had a minute his ego was visible shaken when he realized all i wanted was to talk about mary robbins. after all this time i still miss him. keep hoping someone will discover an unknown album in a vault somewhere in nashville.........thanks

Hi Helen
Thanks for the great Marty Robbins page it is the best. I got to see Marty perform at the opry a few times and then in 1982 I got to see him perform up here in Pennsylvania. I also got to meet and see Ronny perform up here in Pennsylvania. I think Ronny knows I am one of his biggest fans. I can't wait to see their homepage. Again thanks for having this page on the best country music singer that ever lived.

Hello,

I thought I would write and let you know I am making a trip back to Tennessee as I am a relative of Marty Robbins. My great grandmother Orpha Mae Robbins was his aunt. My grandmother made a trip back to Tennessee two years before she passed away and met everyone except Marty as he was deceased. We were told that from the time he was a little boy until he died he sang at all the family gatherings. I am going back to Tennessee for the first time in July to hear about my cousin from my relatives themselves.

I was also informed he was Cherokee Indian. My great great grandmother told me that my singing abilities ran in our family. I am proud to be related to someone that I grew up admiring and not knowing that we were cousins until it was too late to meet him. However, I was sent home movies of him and my family.

Take care.

Thank you for taking the time to revive the memory of an all but forgotten Giant of ballads. I used to think it was his voice that was so intoxicating, and it it it truel so, when I started reading his lyrics as prose I was overcome by that same haunting feeling of kinship. He was one of this past centuries greatest story tellers, and I fear his art form is all but forgotten.

I never got the chance to see him perform in person, as I was only 10 when he passed away. But, like you, I had heard El Paso on the radio and I just had to find out who sang it! Well, the next song I remember hearing somewhere was Man Walks Among Us, and let me tell you that clenched me as a Marty Robbins fan for good! Take care and I'll be visiting you site often!
