Marty Robbins started out as a Rockabilly singer and ended up as a country superstar. His GUNFIGHTER albums during the late 1950s and early 1960s crossed over to the pop charts and were influential in expanding country music beyond its small traditional base.
During the mid-1960s he released a number of what cas best be described as pure pop songs that had success on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
He released “The Story Of My Life” November 11, 1957 and it rose to number 15 on the pop chart. It was also the first Burt Bacharach song to become a hit.
