    Marty Robbins was my mother’s favourite singer.

    He also appears in a song by The Who.

    He is a cut above the average country-and-western (not the same as country!) singer.

    He even had his own TV show back in the late 80s!

      “Out in the West Texas town of El Paso, I fell in love with a Mexican girl.”

      I haven’t heard that for more than 35 years, but am reasonably sure that I am quoting it correctly.

      I am trying to imagine him singing with the Who. Wow.

      Easy to understand why he’d be your Mom’s favourite, the guy had a great voice.

      I did not know about the TV show either!

        Sorry for the confusion. He never sang with The Who, as far as I know. He appears in the lyrics of a Who song, namely “God Speaks of Marty Robbins” from Endless Wire:

        I heard the heavens sing
        Predicting Marty Robbins
        I knew I’d find
        Music and time
        Were the perfect plan


        The television show was Marty Robbins’ Spotlight. Check out YouTube.
