When the Nashville community was stunned by the sudden deaths of Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas, Hawkshaw Hawkins and Randy Hughes, Marty Robbins wrote the song “Two Little Boys” for Hawksaw’s widow Jean Shepard. He then transferred the copyright to Hawkshaw’s sons so they would receive royalties from the sales of the record.
Turns out the singing cowboy was also a gentleman with class.

Grave Location Description
As you enter the cemetery, drive past the office building to the road behind the office. Turn left and drive while staying to the right. Drive past the historic wood house and pond (on your left) and park 100 feet past the pond. Walk 300 feet to the top of the hill on you left and look for his large, flat bronze tablet with the ever-present flowers. You’ll either find Marty or his good friend Webb Pierce who has a monument that looks identical nearby.
