Heading to Memphis? Be sure to visit Sun Studios.
I love pop culture and history. At Sun Studios in Memphis, you get a hefty wallop of both. This is the place where rock and roll was invented, literally. Greats like Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley cut some of their most notable tracks in this humble studio. You can feel the energy in this place; I get goosebumps just thinking about it!
Our tour guide was absolutely charming and informative. I was psyched when she said we could take a photo with THE Elvis Presley mic (so long as we didn’t kiss or lick it. Ewww!). Getting that photo opp was one of the best things about this trip, period!
Sun Studios continues to operate as a recording studio today, and yours truly sang a little back-up on Memphis musician Amy LaVere’s album. Don’t worry, I’m not quitting my day job.
