Nashville, Memphis, & Branson

May 25 – June 4, 2023

11 – 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 noticeably brief period, 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 us enjoy an incredible musical journey with, not just rock and roll, but new and old country, from Memphis to Nashville and then onto Branson.
