It was In June of 1958, that Buddy Holly met Maria Elena Santiago, a receptionist 
for music publisher Murray Deutch.. Less than two months later, they were married 
in a private ceremony at the home of Buddy’s parents in Lubbock, Texas. The couple honeymooned in Acapulco. Many Buddy Holly fans became aware of his marriage
only after his death on February 3, 1959 at age 22.

”True Love Ways” was recorded by Buddy on October 21,
1958 with his wife Maria in the studio
