New Graceland Blog - Elvis Meets Col. Tom Parker

Elvis Presley wasted no time winning over fans right from the beginning, thanks to his voice, energetic stage show, style, revolutionary sound and charm. But the music business is just that – a business – and every artist needs a manager to help take care of the details.

From mapping out a tour route to arguing for higher appearance fees, the manager takes care of the business side of things so the artist can focus on the music. At the beginning of Elvis’ career, he met a man who would help him see his goals through to fruition.

On February 6, 1955, Elvis met the man who would become his third and final manager: Col. Tom Parker. Learn more about the night Elvis met Col. Parker on the Graceland Blog.
