Buddy Holly and his bride, Maria returned to his hometown of Lubbock, Texas to
visit family and friends for Christmas in 1958. While there he decided to improvise
a new song called You’re The One. His friend Waylon Jennings, who was still
working at the local radio as a DJ, provided the handclapping heard on the
recording. The single was released much later with additional backing along
with Buddy’s guitar.
