A true Texas troubadour with an old soul and a modern heart and perhaps one of the last great musical workhorses. Born and raised in Garland, Texas, Heddin started his love affair with music at a young age. He found his passion, his place and his voice, singing tenor in the local choir and immersing himself in country’s greatest records. Before long, Heddin was discovered while touring the state’s Opry circuit. His smooth, classic tone and full-throttle style caught the attention of Cowboy’s band leader Bobby Smith and, well, the rest was history.
Chances are, your favorite country singer has probably played with Marty Heddin & the Country Blues. As the house bandleader for Cowboys in Dallas, San Antonio, and Atlanta, he’s opened for everyone from Tim McGraw to Toby Keith and Kenny Chesney. He's showing no signs of slowing down, readying his first six-song EP produced by one of Nashville’s biggest hitmakers, Keith Stegall. This set of songs is a rare breed in today’s auto-tuned, bro-country soaked environment. Like the best of George Strait, Vince Gill and Alan Jackson, it’s an up-tempo twang with a heavy dose of southern soul and plenty of rock & roll energy without losing even a second of its Texas swing.
After honing his craft for years, Marty Heddin is finally ready to step out as a solo sensation, all the while staying true to his honkeytonk, hard working roots and making music on his own terms.
