Everyone needs a certain appreciation for the classics – those songs that inspired the Texas and Nashville tunes we hear today. There was a certain honesty in songwriting back in the day that deserves to be recognized and remembered

It is no doubt that The Everly Brothers' harmony and style have highly inspired many artists today. The music of Don Everly and Phil Everly expanded the country genre in the wake of rock-and-roll, along with the likes of Buddy Holly, and have a lifetime full of achievements to prove it.

Phil passed away just a short time ago, on January 3rd, 2014. Rest in peace.
