The song was written after a trip to the movies by Buddy Holly, Jerry 
Allison and Sonny Curtis in June 1956. The John Wayne film The
Searchers
was playing. Wayne’s frequently-used, catchphrase,
"that’ll be the day" inspired the young musicians. The song was
recorded eight months later, at the Norman Petty studios in Clovis,
New Mexico
, on February 25, 1957, and was released  on Decca’s
Brunswick label. Producer Norman Petty credited The Crickets as
the artist to prevent possible legal action against Buddy do to a
contractual agreement with Decca.
