New Louisiana Hayride Photos Added to Elvis Mobile App
April 05, 2011
On October 16, 1954 Elvis Presley appeared for the first time on the Louisiana Hayride, a live, Saturday night, country music radio show originating in Shreveport, Louisiana. The show was the Grand Ole Opry's chief competitor, carried by 190 stations in thirteen states. His initial performance with Scotty Moore and Bill Black led to regular appearances on the Hayride over the next two years. Elvis' last appearance on a regularly scheduled Hayride show was on March 31, 1956. In celebration of this milestone, five new rare photos of Elvis performing at the Louisiana Hayride have just been added to the Elvis Mobile 2.0 iPhone app.
