Rock America 50s

RnB rock launched in the late 1940s continued to grow through the 50s and achieved mass popularity during the decade, most notably by superstars Ray Charles, Bo Diddley, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and James Brown & the Famous Flames. But at the end of the 1950s, it was the rockabilly genre that had established itself as the international symbol of rock'n'roll with the advent of Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis and their likes.
