The Everly Brothers were at the top of the charts when Cadence Records released their newest single…BIRD DOG / DEVOTED TO YOU in early August of 1958. Don and Phil Everly charted a #2 pop hit and a #1 C&W hit with…BYE BYE LOVE in 1957 and followed it up with a #1 pop hit, a #1 R&B hit and a #1 C&W hit in September of 1957 with…WAKE UP LITTLE SUSIE. They were just coming off the Billboard Top 100 with their biggest hit single record…ALL I HAVE TO DO IS DREAM, a #1 pop, R&B and C&W hit.
On August 4, 1958 their latest single charted…BIRD DOG (Cadence 1350). The single was a huge hit and was in heavy play rotation on AM pop radio. The Everly Brothers latest hit went to the top of both the pop and C&W charts, making it their third #1 pop hit and fourth C&W #1. A week later on August 11, 1958 the flip-side of the single…DEVOTED TO YOU made its chart debut. The beautiful ballad featured a perfect blend of Don and Phil’s wonderful voices and became a smash hit of its own, charting at #10 on the Billboard Top 100. The single became The Everly Brothers first hit that featured both sides of the record, becoming Top 10 hits.
