Elvis in Tupelo

You can't really "know" Elvis until you understand where he came from!  Born in Tupelo on January 8, 1935, Elvis spent his first 13 years in Tupelo.  Here, he learned to play guitar and was set on fire by the music in his church, from the clubs in Shake Rag and from the country music of Nashville that wafted through his radio.  It was in Tupelo that Elvis spent the most formative years of his life.  Although some say that Tupelo is Elvis, we like to think that Elvis is Tupelo.
