The Sun Records Rockabilly Era
October 2, 1954
Elvis sang “Blue Moon Of Kentucky” on The Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, Tennessee.
Ever since Elvis was in the regional Billboard charts, Sam Philips had tried to get Elvis in the Opry. Finally he succeeded, thanks to Opry manager Bill Denny. After the Opry Elvis appeared briefly on the Midnight Jamboree Radio show, hosted by Ernest Tubb. All was broadcasted live.
Elvis told to Tubb that his real ambition is to sing country music. So Tubb’s advise to Elvis was that Elvis should be doing that until he would be good enough for something else.
