September 23, 1957 – Buddy Holly

September 23, 1957 - "That'll be the Day" Hits the Top of the U.S. Singles Charts. Because Decca owned the rights to the earlier recording of "That'll Be the Day," Brunswick credited the song to the Crickets upon its release in May 1957. The song was a slow-building hit, finally hitting the top of the U.S. singles charts on September 23.	@buddyholly @BuddyHollyCtr #ROCkabillyHop #buddyholly #TheCrickets
