New Biography Tells The Story of Marty Robbins

The life of country legend Marty Robbins is being recounted with the release of Twentieth Century Drifter: The Life of Marty Robbins (University of Illinois Press).

Twentieth Century Drifter is the first biography of the hitmaking country artist and NASCAR driver who recorded timeless gunfighter classics like “Big Iron” and “El Paso.” Author Diane Diekman drew on personal interviews and in-depth research for the project, and shows Robbins to be a drifter who longed for inner peace. Diekman is also the author of Live Fast, Love Hard: The Faron Young Story. Read an interview with the author here.

Diekman will be discussing and signing copies of the book at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum at 12:30 PM on March 31.
