"That'll be the Day" Hits the Top of the U.S. Singles Charts

Because Decca owned the rights to the earlier recording of "That'll Be the Day," Brunswick credited the song to the Crickets upon its release in May 1957.

The song was a slow-building hit, finally hitting the top of the U.S. singles charts on September 23.

"That'll Be the Day" topped the US "Best Sellers in Stores" chart on September 23 and was the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in November.
