New Graceland Blog - While Elvis Presley Served

In the 60-plus years of rock ‘n’ roll, no one has had a career quite like Elvis Presley’s.

The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll topped the charts, sold out movie theaters and drew record-breaking audiences. As his career began to skyrocket, he put everything on hold to serve his country in the United States Army.

Like the veterans we remember and honor today, Veterans Day, Elvis focused on serving his country during his Army days. He let his record label, RCA, and his manager, Col. Tom Parker take care of business back home. It was up to them to keep Elvis on the charts and in the public's attention span. But his fans, back in America and all over the world, were never far from his heart.

On this week's Graceland Blog, find out how Elvis' label and manager kept his career going while he focused on serving his country.
