Son of country music legend Marty Robbins, Ronny tried to follow in his father’s footsteps by fashioning a music career for himself in the ‘70s with the release of Columbia Records Presents Marty Robbins Jr. and a string of promos under his own name.
By the 1980s, he had had it, mainly because he didn’t enjoy touring, although he was honoured with The Nashville Network’s Star of Tomorrow award in 1984.
In the late ‘80s he decided to devote himself to preserving his father’s legacy by running Marty Robbins Enterprises, but still sings and performs on various shows.
