A Tribute to Marty Robbins is an incredible Branson showcase for the superbly talented Leroy New! Fans of the late, great Marty Robbins are still loyal and big in numbers, and quite particular about how his iconic music is treated. There’s no disagreement here, Leroy’s magical vocals and phenomenal guitar pickin’ skills are second to none! Marty Robbins was a star when we were still calling the genre ‘country & western’ music; he racked up more than 40 Top Ten hits, with more than 15 landing at #1 on the country charts. And he was multi-talented; he mastered several instruments, appeared in movies, and was a serious Nascar competitor, racing alongside big names like Carl Yarbrough and Richard Petty. It’s take an extremely talented artist to step into the shoes of a bigger-than-life character like Robbins, thankfully for Branson, Leroy New is more than up to the task!
In A Tribute to Marty Robbins, Leroy New performs hits like “El Paso,” “Devil Woman,” “Faleena,” “Don’t Worry,” and “Among My Souvenirs.” He also treats audiences to the music of other country greats that were contemporaries of Marty Robbins, including Bob Wills, Maybelle Carter, and Johnny Cash. And his special tribute to guitar virtuoso, Chet Atkins, and the legendary country crooner, Hank Williams, alone is worth the price of a ticket!
