Personalities | Buddy Knox | Rockabilly | Country
(Vocals, guitar, 1933–99)
Knox came from the tiny west Texas town of Happy. His group, The Rhythm Orchids included future country-music executive Jimmy Bowen on upright bass. Their biggest hit, ‘Party Doll’ (1957), was recorded at Norman Petty’s studio in Clovis, New Mexico. Buddy’s style was light and melodic, and less aggressive than his contemporaries. His career extended longer than most as he was able to adapt into both the pop and country markets.
