  • Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, as a twinless twin—his brother was stillborn
  • When he was 13 years old, he and his family relocated to Memphis, Tennessee
  • His music career began there in 1954, when he recorded a song with producer Sam Phillips at Sun Records
  • Accompanied by guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black, Presley was an early popularizer of rockabilly, an uptempo, backbeat-driven fusion of country music and rhythm and blues
  • RCA Victor acquired his contract in a deal arranged by Colonel Tom Parker, who managed the singer for more than two decades

  • He was regarded as the leading figure of rock and roll after a series of successful network television appearances and chart-topping records
  • His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across color lines that coincided with the dawn of the Civil Rights Movement, made him enormously popular—and controversial
  • In November 1956, he made his film debut in Love Me Tender
  • In 1958, he was drafted into military service
