Photos of Elvis During His Sun Studio Days Now Added to Mobile Apps

July 08, 2013

July of 1954 opened many doors for rock 'n' roll music, after an impromptu jam session inside the legendary Sun Studio resulted in Elvis' first major hit. On July 5, 1954, Elvis recorded "That's All Right" at Sun Studio and a few days later, DJ Dewey Phillips played it for the first time on the local WHBQ radio station. Elvis recorded his first five singles over the next year and would soon shake the world with his gyrating hips and unique voice. He was about to embark on his landmark career and the world had no idea how he would change pop culture and music forever. As we celebrate the 59th anniversary of this rock music milestone, @ElvisPresley will host the first-ever #ElvisChat on Twitter. Fans can chime in with their own knowledge about Elvis' Sun Studio days by following the hashtag #ElvisChat on Thursday, July 11, at 11:00 CT/ 12:00 ET.
