Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, and Elvis Presley featured the rockabilly sound with their vocal twangs, strong rhythms, and vocal harmonies. In the early 1950's Rockability was known for being one of the earliest styles of rock and roll music in the Deep South of the United States.

Hillbilly music in the 1940s and 1950s blended well with the genre Western musical style, rhythm and blues with a poetic mix of country music. Jump blues, boogie-woogie, and electric blues-influenced the Rockabilly music scene, with a variety of sub-styles influencing such as punk rock, with the basic rhythm of Rockabilly displayed throughout, has been used since the mid-1920's.
