“Bye Bye Love” is a popular song written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant and published in 1957. It is best known in a debut recording by the Everly Brothers,[1] issued by Cadence Records as catalog number 1315. The song reached number 2 on the US Billboard Pop charts and number 1 on the Cash Box Best Selling Record charts. The Everly Brothers’ version also enjoyed major success as a country song, reaching number 1 in the spring of 1957.[2] The Everlys’ “Bye Bye Love” is ranked 210th on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.

The guitar intro to the song was not originally part of the song but was something that Don Everly had come up with that was just tacked on to the beginning.[3] Chet Atkins was the lead guitar player on the session.[4] Buddy Harmon was the drummer.[5]
