Senate Declares 'Crickets Day' In Texas

The sounds of Lubbock are getting recognition on Capitol Hill.

March 16th is now known as "The Crickets Day in Texas"...as in Buddy Holly and the Crickets. The Crickets were recognized on the senate floor Wednesday as Texas legends who grew to symbolize the pioneering spirit of the world.

Almost 50 years after the band first started playing with Buddy Holly, the Crickets still continue to record and perform music.
