The Sweet Sounds & Sights of Memphis
If you’re a rock and roll fan, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to see and actually stand in the exact spot where legends including Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley made history at Sun Studio. Sun Studio is the recording studio started by rock pioneer Sam Phillips, and is situated right in the heart of Memphis. Now a National Historic Landmark, you can take a tour and see where newer artists including U2 and John Mellencamp have recorded. And don’t forget to pick up some souvenirs and memorabilia for all your fellow music lovers back home from their one-of-a-kind “rock shop.”
Keeping with the theme, you can visit the home of the “King of Rock N’ Roll” at Graceland. Home to Elvis Presley during his adult years until his death in 1977, Graceland now welcomes over 600,000 visitors a year. With a calendar of events full of activities including tours, celebrations, presentations, tributes, ceremonies, and games, he may be gone, but the King will not soon be forgotten.
There are additional lyrical venues throughout the area including live music on Beale Street and the Stax Museum of American Soul Music. For a complete lesson in its musical story, you’d be wise to visit the Memphis Rock and Soul Museum. There, you’ll get an all-inclusive, in-depth view of how Memphis became known as the Home of the Blues and the Birthplace of Rock and Roll!
