June 22, 2012

Allyson Adams, daughter of actor Nick Adams, will share stories during the 2012 Official Elvis Insiders Conference from her father's new book that spotlights the time he spent with Elvis in 1956. 

Elvis was filming his first movie in Hollywood, "Love Me Tender," when he introduced himself to Nick Adams, who was a struggling actor and part of the "Rebel Without A Cause" gang. Nick was infamous for writing about his famous friends and now Allyson Adams has published her fathers' posthumous, unedited manuscript, "The Rebel & The King." The new book is an inspirational portrait of a spiritual Elvis and describes Nick Adams’ whirlwind eight days in Memphis during the famous performer's Tupelo Homecoming in the summer of '56.

The Elvis Insiders' Conference is a full-day of special programming including featured guests, videos, and more. Other confirmed guests include: Jerry Schilling, Egil "Bud" Krogh, Tom and Billie Perryman, Larry Geller, Dixie Locke Emmons, June Juanico, and the Holladay Sisters. The conference is from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Monday, August 13, 2012.
