Sun Studio - The place where an 18 year old Elvis Presley recorded his first song.
It’s well-known in the music industry as "The Birthplace of Rock 'N' Roll" and the most famous recording studio in the world. Opened by rock pioneer Sam Phillips in 1950, this national Historic Landmark is where superstar musicians like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and countless others started their recording careers.
Today, Sun Studio still serves as a recording studio in the evenings while hosting public tours during the daytime hours.
