Marty Robbins Gives a Classic Twist on this Elvis Presley Tune

0  comments

It is no doubt that the great Marty Robbins took the country music and Wild West by storm. With his successful career spanning for almost four decades, his incredible voice and great talent were absolutely undisputed.

As proof of his success, his songs have gone atop the country music charts, and some even penetrated the pop charts. In fact, he was not just known as a talented singer. He was also a popular NASCAR driver, songwriter, and actor.

On the other hand, another singer who had also displayed a great deal of talent was the King of Rock & Roll Elvis Presley. This heartthrob had also gone all the way to produce some hits in country, gospel, and rock & roll music. His songs like “Burning Love” and “Jailhouse Rock” were a hit and had become a staple especially for Elvis Presley fans. However, it was “That’s Alright Mama” that caught the attention of Marty Robbins.

Marty Robbins Covers Elvis Presley’s “That’s Alright Mama”

One of the tunes of Elvis in the fifties, “That’s Alright Mama” narrates the tale of taking advice when your mama knows someone is not good for you. It is anchored to the popular adage that goes:

“Mama knows best.”

This relatable tune, however, did not manage to penetrate in the charts and failed to reach national fame. Nevertheless, its story was still remembered that even Marty Robbins got interested and rendered a version of it.

In his performance, Robbins began with an introduction of the classic song to the audience. Wearing an olive green and floral jumpsuit with his guitar, the legend shared the reason why he chose to sing “That’s Alright Mama.”

 Live at the Grand Ole Opry; he narrates the story:

“Alright here’s a song that I did back when I was just a little kid in the 50s. This is when country music, you know, wasn’t as big as it is now. The thing that was really going big was rock and roll and I did some rock and roll numbers.”

He then proceeded to sing the song with his band joining in unison. There’s nothing we love more about Robbins but his entire persona while performing. The quality of entertainment he gives every time he performs is just what we wanted, and we could not ask for more.

Furthermore, the classy tune that he rendered in his performance had the audience dancing the whole time. Right after his one-of-a-kind performance, he was greeted by thunderous applause from the crowd.

We surely do miss Marty Robbins!
