  • This was Marty Robbins' seventh #1 on the Country chart - it stayed at the peak position for ten weeks.
  • The song features an early example of guitar distortion. The effect was due an electrical fault in session guitarist Grady Martin's mixing-desk for his six-string bass, whilst recording on the record. Although Martin was unhappy with the sound, it was so effective that Robbins' producer left it as it was.

    Murfreesboro, Tennessee (AP) — A recording engineer whose invention of a pedal that allowed guitarists to create a fuzzy, distorted sound most famously used by Keith Richards in the Rolling Stones' hit "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" has died...
    Glenn Snoddy was 96. His daughter Dianne Mayo said Saturday that Snoddy died Monday, May 21st, 2018, of congestive heart failure at his Murfreesboro, Tennessee, home...
    Snoddy was helping record country artist Marty Robbins' song "Don't Worry" in 1961 when a malfunction caused the distortion in a guitar solo. When other musicians sought the same effect, Snoddy couldn't recreate it in the studio but invented a pedal where a guitarist could switch into the sound with a tap of the foot...
    Richards' "Satisfaction" riff with the fuzz tone is one of the most recognizable ones in rock history...
    May Mr. Snoddy R.I.P.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 24th 1961, "Don't Worry" by Marty Robbins entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on March 20th, 1961 it peaked at #3 (for 1 week) and spent 15 weeks on the Top 100 (and 7 of those 15 weeks were on the Top 10)...
    And on February 21st, 1961 it reached #1 on Billboard's Hot Country/Western Sides chart, and as stated above it remained in the top spot for 10 weeks (the record that finally pushed it out of the #1 was the Willie Nelson composed song, "Hello Walls", sung by Faron Young)......
    R.I.P. Mr. Robbins, born Martin David Robinson, (1925 - 1982).
