Buddy Holly

Sonny West, a West Texas born songwriter and musician, first recorded the song ‘Rave On’ in 1958 with hopes that he had a huge hit. Later that year, Buddy Holly teamed up with the West Texas native to record his own rendition of ‘Rave On.’ After its release ‘Rave On’ went on to become one of six Buddy Holly songs to chart that year.
