rockabilly » Wiki
Most of the rock n Roll stars of the early 1950’s started their musical career in Rockabilly bands, such as Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly, indeed Elvis was spawned from Sun Records, the first record label to promote the sound at a national level.
The influence and popularity of the style waned in the 1960s, but during the late 1970s and early 1980s, rockabilly enjoyed a major revival of popularity that has endured to the present, often within a rockabilly subculture. It was the new generation of kids that became interested in the genre that spawned Neo and Psychobilly to the tree of Rock n Roll.
Rockabilly was never really promoted by the commercial industry
