    Shout! Factory and the Country Music Hall Of Fame® and Museum Archive Series are proud to present Marty Robbins: Legendary Performances DVD available now. Marty Robbins: Legendary Performances is a collection of performances from one of the most eclectic country artists of all time. The Grand Ole Opry member, nicknamed “Mr. Teardrop,” combined country with pop, rock 'n' roll, R&B, western ballads and more, and had nearly 100 charting singles, including 16 #1 country hits (12 of which he wrote himself) and seven Top 20 pop hits. Sequenced chronologically, this DVD kicks off with a 1957 performance of “Knee Deep In The Blues.” The next three performances, including Robbins’ country and pop hit “Singing The Blues,” come from Country Style USA, a syndicated country music showcase filmed as a recruitment tool for the United States Army. The performance of the #1 country and pop hit “El Paso,” which won Robbins his first Grammy® Award, is taken from his 1965 TV series The Drifter. In 1968 Robbins began hosting his own syndicated television series, from which the 1969 performance of “Begging To You” was taken. Other performances on the DVD include “My Woman, My Woman, My Wife,” which was a #1 hit in 1970 and earned Robbins his second Grammy® Award; “A White Sport Coat (And A Pink Carnation),” his classic high-school prom anthem from 1957; and a rhinestone-studded Robbins’ reading of “All Around Cowboy.” Robbins passed away from a heart attack in 1982 at the age of 57, in the midst of a successful career, and less than two months after being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Marty Robbins: Legendary Performances helps preserve his legacy as one of country music’s greatest vocalists and most versatile artists. Extras on the DVD consist of an interview with Marty Robbins from 1982, and Marty Robbins’ Country Music Hall of Fame induction.
