Hawaiian and country music have long been intertwined, and it could be said that without Hawaii's innovation of the steel guitar, the country music sound would be lacking one of its most signature elements. The bending and swooping of guitar notes played with a steel bar became one of the most identifiable stamps of the country & western sound, second only to the fiddle. The Hawaiian tourism boom of the 1930s popularized its breezy folk music on the mainland, leading to a gold rush of island pop crossover albums in the '40s and '50s

The discography of country music singer Marty Robbins consists of 52 studio albums, 13 compilation albums, and 100 singles. In his career, Robbins has charted 17 Number One singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, as well as 82 Top 40 singles. Robbins' highest charting album is 1959's Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs. It charted to on the all-genre Billboard 200, and was also certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

He was stationed in the Solomon Islands in the Pacific Ocean. To pass the time during the war, he learned to play the guitar, started writing songs, and came to love Hawaiian music. Robbins married Marizona "Mari" Baldwin on September 27, 1948. Robbins was a symbol of the Nashville establishment that younger country fans abandoned in the Seventies for the bleached-denim 'outlaw school' of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Robbins belonged to the Jim Reeves era and he wore his embroidered cowboy suits proudly.
