“A Boy From Tupelo: A Short Film” by Robert Gordon

It was an honor to appear in A Boy From Tupelo: A Short Film, directed by Robert Gordon. The film has been released in conjunction with the new Elvis Presley box set from Sony Legacy, A Boy From Tupelo: The Complete 1953-1955 Recordings. My Motel Mirrors bandmate Amy LaVere and I got to interview Kenny Black, brother of Bill Black, and rockabilly singer and James Cannon, who was a neighbor of Elvis’s from the Lauderdale Courts days. You can watch the entire film here.

The film features appearances by Jerry Phillips and J.M. Van Eaton, both of whom will be appearing as special guests at my Salute to Sun Records this Sunday, August 13 at Graceland’s Soundstage A, as part of Elvis Week 2017. Get your tickets here.
