HISTORY OF THE PARK

The park is named in honor of country and rock & roll duo the Everly Brothers. The Everly brothers, Isaac Donald "Don" and Phillip "Phil", moved to Knoxville with their family in 1953, where they attended West High School. While in Knoxville, the brothers caught their first break from a family friend, Chet Atkins, manager of RCA Victor’s studio in Nashville. Soon after, the brothers became a duo and launched their musical careers. The Everly Brothers, along with musical pioneers Buddy Holly, Elvis, Little Richard, and Chuck Berry ushered in the early years of rock and roll.
