Big Iron !

Marty Robbins has more greatest-hits compilations than most artists have hits! Robbins landed a recording contract with Columbia in 1951 with the assistance of Little Jimmy Dickens, who had been a fan ever since appearing on Western Caravan. « El Paso » (his 1959 chart-topper and biggest crossover success) began a very successful decade for Robbins. "Big Iron," another western song, followed its predecessor to the Top Ten of the country charts in 1960.
C’mon everybody, all together :Yeeha.

Dear sir, I am sending you some questions by way of my own blog over here: It's called a 'meme' for reasons unknown to me and the thing is to participate or not to participate -just do what you want to do with it! (Hope you do of course.) Keep on rocking anyway and spreading those good words! One man Frank Safari.

C'mon Rev,
comments not up to usual could have mentioned the nice guitar work of the late
Grady Martin as a contributor to this early Tex-Mex western sound...
