Today is a beautiful day to visit Everly Brothers Park — just a few blocks east of our Knoxville shop. While you’re there, be sure to read the paving stones engraved with quotes from Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Carole King, Brian Wilson, and other icons praising the music of the Everlys. Walk a little further along the Greenway and you’ll find yourself outside West High School where Don and Phil attended classes in the 1950s. One of Don’s classmates, a cute girl named Catherine, was the inspiration for their hit, “Cathy’s Clown.” Walking up Tobler Lane and then down Scenic Drive into the Sequoyah Hills neighborhood, you’ll pass one of the houses the Everly family lived in at the time.
We love the Everly Brothers, and listen to their music all the time, so it’s cool to have all this history nearby!
