Keith Urban Performs an Incredible Marty Robbins Medley

0  comments

In 2009, ACM honored artists from previous decades who inspired the country music we all know now. They gathered together artists of this generation to perform songs from the past. Aside from honoring these legends, ACM named George Strait as Artist of the Decade that night.

Keith Urban was tasked to perform a medley of Marty Robbins songs for the ACM Artist of the Decade All-star Concert. He walked on stage with his guitar and made a short introduction about Robbins. He even shared how he got to know the singer, and how he thinks that he was the coolest guy ever.

Keith Urban’s Medley of Marty Robbins’ Songs

Urban began by singing Robbins’ “Singing the Blues,” and he threw in some of his yodeling skills while singing the song. He even got a round of applause as he performed on stage. He shifted the song by playing a riff on his guitar for Robbins biggest hit of all time, “El Paso.” He ended his performance with the catchy tune of “A White Sport Coat and A Pink Carnation.”

Watch Keith Urban as he shows us his yodeling skills at the ACM All-star concert.

Robbins would have been proud of Urban when he heard him playing his songs.

Marty Robbins’ Top-performing Songs

The three songs performed by Urban are all in the country chart. “Singing the Blues,” a song penned by Melvin Endsley, was recorded by Robbins in 1956. The song placed at number one on the chart, making it Robbins’ second number one song. “El Paso” was his biggest hit. It was released in 1959. It topped both the country and the pop chart. “A White Sport Coat and A Pink Carnation,” released a year after “Singing the Blues,” marked the third number one country single of Robbins.

All these chart-topping songs performed at the ACM concert are gems that we have in country music.
