It has been nearly 40 years since Elvis Presley died and still over six hundred thousand visitors travel every year to Graceland, his Memphis home. It’s hard to believe, but had he lived Elvis would be 81 years old tomorrow. Born January 8, 1935 to a poor family in Tupelo, Mississippi, Elvis initially worked as a truck driver before hitting it big with “That’s All Right Mama”.
Elvis had a string of hits from the 1950s through the 1970s. He is best remembered for bringing forward rockabillly music that incorporated elements of country, bluegrass and gospel music. In addition, his showmanship on the stage set the crowds afire. Elvis went on to work on the big screen as an actor in the movie “Love Me Tender”. In 1958 he was inducted into the Army and served for two years. When he was released from service his popularity was nearly as high as when he left to serve. Few artists can claim that distinction.
