Don and Phil - The Everly Brothers

Don and Phil Everly, from Iowa, got their start singing with their father Ike on his local radio show. They began recording in the mid-1950s, and became one of the top popular duos in the country. Although their popularity in terms of record sales had waned by the late 1960s, they are widely recognized as being among the best singing groups of their time. Their hits include Cathy's Clown, So Sad, Walk Right Back, Devoted To You, Crying In The Rain, When Will I Be Loved, and That's Old Fashioned.

The Everly Brothers had 26 Billboard Top 40 singles and 35 Billboard top 100 singles, the most Top 100 singles by any duo. They were among the first ten artists inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Rolling Stone Magazine ranks them #33 on the list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
