Phil and Don Everly were the most popular duo in music history until passed by Hall & Oates. They were superstars of the late 1950s and early 1960s. They broke up 1973 but reunited in 1983. They were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1986.
“Bird Dog” was their third of four number one hits but only barely. It topped out at number two on the BILLBOARD Hot 100 but managed to spend one week at the top of the Best Seller In Stores Chart. While it was definitely not a country song, it also topped that chart as well.
Don Everly passed away recently so one last tip of the hat to the Everly Brothers and their number one hit “Bird Dog.”
