Project Description

Overview

Nashville Memphis and Branson

May 30th – June 8th, 2019
10 – Day Tour

It was an impromptu jam session involving Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash made on December 4, 1956, at the Sun Record Studios in Memphis, Tennessee that started the ball rolling. In a very short period of time, a recording was released under the title “Million dollar Quartet”. While the jam session appeared to have happened by sheer chance, what came out of it was pure genius. Rock ‘n Roll took off like a wood fired steam engine and the rest is history. Let’s enjoy an incredible musical journey with, not just rock and roll, but new and old country; from Memphis to Nashville and then to Branson where we wrap up the tour with the final show called “Million Dollar Quartet”.
