Are you a fan of The Beatles? How about the Rolling Stones? Simon & Garfunkel? If you said yes, did you know that members from each of these groups said that the Everly Brothers inspired their sound? You might be wondering what that has to do with Knoxville. Glad you asked!

Do us (and yourself) a favor – read this short post from our friends at The Knoxville History Project, then come back and listen to this curated playlist that has a few Everly tunes along with music from the bands mentioned above and more!

On your next visit to Knoxville, plan a trip to Everly Brothers Park in Bearden, where you can see quotes from Paul McCartney, Graham Nash, Keith Richards, and several others. Expand your horizons by doing the downtown Cradle of Country Music Walking Tour.
