New Graceland Blog - The Musicians of Elvis Presley's Memphis

June 28, 2017

A few months ago, Graceland opened a new entertainment and exhibit complex, called Elvis Presley’s Memphis.

The complex, much larger than the former Graceland Plaza, features the world’s largest Elvis museum, a new automobile museum, Discovery Exhibits covering Elvis’ Army years, his life in Tupelo, his style and much more. There’s a soundstage that shows Elvis movies and concerts and restaurants named after his parents. Thanks to the expansion, more artifacts from Graceland Archives are on display than ever before.

While Graceland shares details of Elvis’ personal life, the complex is all about his career and accomplishments. It’s only fitting, then, that we have Memphis musicians who perform at the complex daily. Whether they’re playing their own versions of Elvis hits or something they wrote, these musicians are channeling the king’s musical energy and influence to entertain Graceland guests.

Get to know these musicians on this week's Graceland Blog. Find out who played hopscotch with Elvis, who got married in Elvis' hometown, who grew up singing Elvis songs and more!
