It’s not just Art Chapman‘s mustache, hat, and facial features that remind us of Marty Robbins, but also his easy, warm voice and the gently rolling, late-summer country flavor of his song “I Sang Dixie.”

Chapman is a country music vet who’s been active in bands all over the country since the 1960s, including playing in house bands in El Paso (at a club owned by Freddy Fender) and Branson, Missouri, as well as on Austin City Limits. Chapman’s “I Sang Dixie” is a melancholy ballad that sheds real tears for our world’s forgotten souls.
