Although his sound wasn't always mainstream, it was often innovative. Songs such as "El Paso" and "Big Iron" were known for their strong Western gunfighter imagery; "Devil Woman" had strong calypso overtones; "Don't Worry" was the first country song to use guitar distortion; and so on. Robbins' vocal was more croon than twang, but he is still one of the most prominent singers in the genre.
