No. 74: Marty Robbins, ‘El Paso’ – Top 100 Country Songs

Marty Robbins 'El Paso'Released in 1959, Marty Robbins’ hit song ‘El Paso’ topped country western charts and gave the legendary singer country street cred for capturing the true spirit of the western United States.

Robbins earns his spot on the Top 100 Country Songs list thanks to this song’s reception across all genres. For nearly 25 years, the Grateful Dead frequently covered ‘El Paso’ in concert. Alternative country band the Old 97s have also covered the song, as did Jason and the Scorchers. Robbins wrote other songs about the American west, but none quite captured it with the authenticity of ‘El Paso.’
