A massive influence on other artists!


Before Don and Phil launched themselves as the Everly Brothers, they sang with their parents as The Everly Family in the ’40s.

After being discovered by Chet Atkins, they started releasing singles as the Everly Brothers, with Chet playing on their first successful single, Bye Bye Love (1957).

This was quickly followed by a string of hits, making them not just a household name, but also a massive influence on other acts that would follow in their footsteps, such as Simon & Garfunkel, Neil Diamond, and even The Beatles.

Their next single, Wake Up Little Susie, was #1 in the U.S. and #2 in the U.K. This was followed by This Little Girl Of Mine, a Ray Charles cover based on the old Gospel tune This Little Light Of Mine.

Their fourth consecutive big tune was All I Have To Do Is Dream, and we’re still only in 1958.

These four tunes came to represent the duo and, in my opinion, were never topped. They did have chart success for a little while longer, but Bird Dog, Problems, and (Till) I Kissed You haven’t had the same legacy.

It would take until 1960 before their next big tune came with Cathy’s Clown.

The rest of the ’60s would see them chart lower and lower, although tours were still happening. And of course, by now they had a pretty great repertoire to build the show around.

There are a few interesting covers released, without much success, but it still shows they can pick a tune. I’m mainly thinking of That’ll Be The Day, Not Fade Away, I Got A Woman, Hound Dog, Carolina In My Mind, and Dancing In The Street.
