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
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.
