The Everly Brothers’ success began in 1957 when they made Felice and Boudleaux Bryant’s song “Bye Bye Love” into a major hit. The combination of folk and country made a certain style that even those who opposed the music of the generation enjoyed. In 1973, with many unsuccessful albums and Don Everly’s turmoil, the duo parted. During this time, Don Everly pursued a solo career. He found success in Nashville with his band Dead Cowboys and maintained a career by playing with Albert Lee. In June of 1983, the duo reunited and played for a standing-room-only audience at London’s Royal Albert Hall. They achieved recognition again in 1984 with Paul McCartney’s “Wings of a Nightingale.” Despite hardships throughout his career, Don Everly was rewarded in 1986 when the duo was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
