Rockabilly was born in the American south during the 50s. Country and rock music come together to spark energy similar to rhythm and blues. Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis paved the way for more rockabilly musicians and groups to emerge.
In the 50s, Sun Records was the company that pioneered the recording of rockabilly music through artists such as Bill Haley, Eddie Cochran, Chuck Berry, and Buddy Holly. Their influence would last for decades as country music blended with rhythm and blues and inspired The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and countless others.
