The Friends of Marty Robbins Headquarters, Museum and Gift Shop are now located in Willcox, Arizona. I didn't realize when I joined FOMR, how involved I would become. This organization is dedicated to "Keeping Marty's music and memory alive" Founder and President Juanita Buckley has worked tirelessly with love to bring to the public an exhibit that reveals not only the artist and his contributions to country music but the man, Marty Robbins. There are no employees, only volunteers and members who help with fundraisers, promotional ventures and the annual tribute concert. These events assist in maintenance of the museum building. I recommend this organization to anyone who wants to preserve the music and memory of the multi-talented Marty Robbins,a country music history maker and legend in his own time.
