New Graceland Blog - Sam Phillips

There are many important players in Elvis Presley’s life story, but one of the most important is none other than Sam Phillips.


At Sun Studio in Memphis, Sam discovered and helped launch the careers of not just Elvis, but Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Howlin’ Wolf. He is, according to Elvis biographer Peter Guralnick, “the man who invented rock ‘n’ roll.”


Here at Graceland, we recently opened a new exhibit in coordination with Sam’s family, called Sam Phillips: Mystery Train. The exhibit tells the story of Sam’s life and career, and includes artifacts from Sam’s early life and his work at Sun Studio.


On this week's Graceland Blog, get to know this man who helped shaped Elvis' career. Read the blog now.
