0  comments

Marty Stuart is one of the country icons who still keep traditional and classic country music alive. Together with his Fabulous Superlatives, he delivered an impeccable cover of a pure country ‘50s smash hit. In October 2016, they rendered one of the greatest western songs of all-time, Marty Robbins’ “El Paso,” in Raleigh, North Carolina.

With the incredibly catchy lyrics of the hit song, Stuart performs it with his fellow bandmates while strumming the mandolin.

One night a wild young cowboy came in

Wild as the West Texas wind

Dashing and daring, a drink he was sharing

With wicked Felina, the girl that I loved.

Expertly conveying just the right amount of emotion, Stuart sang at the top of his game. The revenge-fueled love song oozes with emotion as it tugs right into the heartstrings of the listener.

Check out Marty Stuart and his band’s take on Marty Robbins’ renowned hit, “El Paso:”

“El Paso”

Marty Robbins’ 1959 hit, “El Paso,” conjures a love song that results in a man returning to the city of El Paso in Texas just to be reunited with his lover. Even though what comes his way, he takes no chance but to be in reunion with his former lover, a woman named Felina. It is a tragic love story that even death plays its way between the two lovers.

Penned and recorded by Robbins, “El Paso” is a country and western ballad. Most notably, it broke through different music genres. It did enter not only the country charts but also penetrated the pop charts. Actually, it skyrocketed to the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100. One of the bands that frequently covered the ‘50s it was the rock band Grateful Dead. The song became one of their standard covers until the band’s demise in the mid-‘90s.

Let us reckon Marty Robbin’s original version of his 1959 hit:
