Elvis & The Southern Sounds With 40th Anniversary Memorial Tour

Day 1 - Memphis. Welcome to Memphis! Your Tour Director is on hand late this afternoon to answer any questions.
Day 2 - Memphis. Today you will feel like a part of Memphis as you experience this amazing city on your guided city sightseeing tour. Your expert Local Guide knows Memphis history like no one else"including the inside, "backstage" stories from the folks who were there, as well as those hard-to-find, hidden Elvis sites (his Lauderdale Courts apartment, Humes High School, the Overton Park Shell Theatre where Elvis gave his first paid concert, places where he worked and played, and many others). For music lovers, a visit to the STAX MUSEUM of American Soul Music is next. Stax celebrates great Memphis soul music made famous by Otis Redding, Booker T. and the MG's, Aretha Franklin, and others. Then, on to the ROCK "N' SOUL MUSEUM, which traces Memphis' cultural and musical past. End the day with a visit to SUN STUDIO, probably the most famous recording studio in the world, where rock "n' roll was first recorded. Hear outtakes from sessions, touch Elvis' first microphone, see memorabilia, and relive the history of the studio that launched the careers of Johnny Cash, BB King, and many other music legends.
Day 3 - Memphis. Excursion to Tupelo. Today we journey to Tupelo, Mississippi, to visit the ELVIS' BIRTHPLACE & MUSEUM, a small, 2-room house built by the singer's father, Vernon Presley. You will also visit the Elvis Presley Museum, featuring "Remembrance of Things Past," an exhibit displaying memorabilia from Elvis' childhood. It's here that you can see, feel, and touch where the "King of Rock "n' Roll" began his musical journey. Return to Memphis, "Home of the Blues," where the evening is free for independent activities. You may choose to visit one of the famous clubs on Beale Street, immortalized in WC Handy's famous songs, or sample some famous Memphis barbecue.
Day 4 - Memphis. Excursion to Graceland. Today is dedicated to a guided audio tour of GRACELAND. Experience life as Elvis did by walking through the decadent and quirky rooms where he felt truly at home. Finish your tour of Graceland with a visit to the Meditation Garden, where Elvis often went to reflect on life, and where he is now laid to rest along with members of his family. You'll also be able to board "The King's" private jet! Tonight you're invited to be at Graceland for the famous Candlelight Vigil.
Day 5 - Memphis - Nashville. Today we head to Nashville""Music City USA." Visit the JOHNNY CASH MUSEUM, where you will see never-before-seen historical documents, awards, costumes, and instruments. Then settle in for a PRIVATE PERFORMANCE & DISCUSSION with Johnny and June's only son, John Carter Cash. John Carter will entertain you with his own original music, as well as a few numbers made famous by his legendary family, and he'll even be available for photographs and autographs afterward.

NOTE:
In the event that the performance with John Carter Cash is not available, a private performance with John Carter's son, brother, or granddaughter will be substituted. The Cash family will share their memories and perform the songs of Johnny Cash. All performances are subject to availability.
Day 6 - Nashville. Nashville is the ideal destination for music fans, history buffs, and lovers of the South. Start your day with a visit to STUDIO B, Nashville's oldest surviving recording studio and one of the country's most important. Between 1957 and 1977, more than 35,000 songs were recorded here, including 262 Elvis Presley recordings. Studio B is a "must-see" for any music fan, but especially for those who love Elvis. Afterward, enjoy an orientation tour of the city, passing by famous Music Row recording studios, the center of the recording industry, which first developed in the 1950s. Get behind the scenes of the music industry by visiting the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME with its glittering costumes, rare instruments, and Elvis Presley's "solid-gold" Cadillac.
Day 7 - Nashville. Today is at leisure to explore more of this vibrant city. You may choose to visit the historic Ryman Auditorium, restored home of the Grand Ole Opry from 1943-1974. Perhaps visit the Hermitage, home of Andrew Jackson, seventh president of the United States, where you'll have an opportunity to view the fully restored mansion, walk through the gardens, and see the tomb of the late president. Tonight, see an unforgettable show at the world-famous GRAND OLE OPRY, the world's premier country music venue since 1925 and the setting for the nation's longest-running music show.
Day 8 - Nashville. The trip ends today with guests departing on individual schedules. Transfers to Nashville International Airport are included. You can extend your vacation with extra nights and explore "Music City USA" further with a variety of exciting optional activities.
