"Don't Worry" is a 1961 country/pop single written and recorded by Marty Robbins. "Don't Worry" was Marty Robbins' seventh number one on the country chart and stayed at number one for ten weeks.[1] The single crossed over to the pop chart and was one of Marty Robbins' most successful crossover songs, peaking at number three on the Hot 100 [2]

"Don't Worry" is an early example of guitar distortion. Session guitarist Grady Martin, using a faulty channel in the mixing-desk for his six-string bass, created a distorted sound. Although Martin did not like the sound, Robbins' producer left the guitar track as it was.[3][4][5]
