A close rival to Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly had an impact not only on American popular music, but also on the development of rock ‘n’ roll in England, influencing such groups as the Rolling Stones and the Beatles.
 
Born and raised in Texas, Charles Hardin Holly was initially influenced by the likes of Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family and had his beginnings as a country artist. Playing in small clubs in the Southwest, he gained a local following and was soon signed on by Decca records as a country singer. 
 
But as rock ‘n’ roll swept over the country, Holly got caught up in the wave. Deciding he had greater potential as a rock artist, Decca had him record both solo and as the lead singer of a group called the Crickets. Both ventures proved to be extremely successful. In 1957 his song “Peggy Sue” hit the charts and the Crickets’ “That’ll Be the Day” sold over a million copies.
 
From 1955 to 1958, Holly and the Crickets had their own radio show and toured throughout the U.S. and abroad. It was on one such tour that Holly lost his life, along with Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson, when their plane crashed near Fargo, North Dakota.
