Rising Country Star Channels Elvis for New Video


Rising Country Star Channels Elvis for New Video

July 10, 2018

Up-and-coming country singer Tegan Marie pays homage to Elvis' iconic '68 Special in her new music video.

The 14-year-old's video for "I Know How to Make a Boy Cry," features the singer's name in red lights, as well as a sit-down session with her band. 

Tegan Marie was inspired to make the video after visiting Graceland this spring.

“I just love Elvis, that’s about the size of it,” Marie added in a press release. “I recently visited Graceland, and it all just clicked. I got to understand him more, beyond the music. I was most moved by how much he cared for people. When my managers suggested we make a video as an homage to Elvis for my new song, it was an automatic yes!"

Watch her video below.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the '68 Special, and we're celebrating the anniversary at this year's Elvis Week! Join us for the '68 Special 50th Anniversary Celebration Event, as well as a Conversations on Elvis: '68 Special panel featuring the special's director, Steve Binder, writer Allan Blye, music director Billy Goldenberg, guitarist Mike Deasy and belly dancer Tanya Lemani George.
