Good country music is listening to Marty Robbins singing his classic songs. He may be known for his signature song “El Paso.” However, Robbins had many other songs that are as great as his popular songs.

Marty Robbins at the Grand Ole Opry

This amazing performance of Robbins is not only due to his superb vocals, but also he made the crowd happy by engaging with them. Instead of singing continuously, he entertains his audience in between.

He began his performance with his song “A White Sport Coat (And A Pink Carnation),” and followed it with “Love Me,” “You Gave Me A Mountain,” and ended with his famous song “El Paso.”

“A White Sport Coat (And A Pink Carnation)”

The first song he performed on the show was known as his second number one song on the chart. “A White Sport Coat (And A Pink Carnation)” was written by Robbins in twenty minutes only. It is said that the inspiration came from seeing high school students dressed for their prom night.

“Love Me”

“Love Me” is another song by Robbins. He included the song on his eponymous album in 1973. It was released as a single on the same year and reached number nine on the country chart.

“You Gave Me A Mountain”

As you can hear, Robbins said that he wrote this song and it was recorded by another artist. However, even if someone made it popular, he stated that he can still record the song.

Most Popular Version

The most popular recording of the song was by Frankie Laine in 1969. He made his recording reach number one on the Adult Contemporary chart. Furthermore, his version secured a spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

Robbins also recorded the song. He included his recording on his album It’s a Sin, yet never released it as a single.

“El Paso”

Everything about this song of Robbins is perfect. The story, the melody, and even Robbins’ vocals performing it is truly magical. Even though he already charted many number one songs, “El Paso” is known to be his greatest masterpiece. It placed at number one on both the pop and country charts.

Watch Robbins as he performs some of his songs and entertains us.
