Keeping classic country music alive, Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives delivered a pure country rendition of  Marty Robbins‘ ’50s smash hit “El Paso” at a concert in Raleigh, North Carolina back in October 2016.

“One night a wild young cowboy came in/ Wild as the West Texas wind,” Stuart sings with his fellow bandmates while strumming the mandolin. “Dashing and daring, a drink he was sharing/ With wicked Felina, the girl that I loved.”

Stuart’s voice was at the top of his game, expertly conveying the emotion of the revenge-fueled love song that results in a man returning to El Paso even though he is to be greeted by certain death just for a chance to be reunited with his former lover Felina.

“El Paso” was written and originally recorded by Robbins for his Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs album in 1959. The song broke through genre barriers and skyrocketed to number one on Billboard’s Hot 100, “El Paso” frequently covered by rock band the Grateful Dead until the band’s demise in the mid 1990s.

You can listen to Stuart’s rendition of “El Paso” below.
