The Marty Robbins 14th Annual Tribute will be Saturday, September 24th 2005 at 7 PM at the Glendale Amphitheater. We understand that the park will be finished by the previous weekend in time for the Mexican Fiesta.

Marty Robbins Trivia: The Amphitheater, which was a dirt road years ago is where Marty was when he decided to start using the name Marty Robbins. His name of birth was Martin David Robinson and he was named for a Dr. Martin who delivered him. Marty spent a lot of time in old downtown Glendale, he was everywhere and he sang and played guitar everywhere and he called Glendale his home.

He went to Nashville in 1953 to join the Opry he was later interviewed and asked about his greatest success to date and he said it was when his hometown of Glendale Arizona named September 26th (his birthday) Marty Robbins Day.
