Elvis Presley's Blue Shoes

Elvis in Nashville

Although Memphis is the location of Graceland, Elvis' home, and the city most closely associated with the star's musical career, it wasn't the only Tennessee city to play a significant role in the legendary life. Elvis Presley recorded a number of his hits in Studio B on Music Row in Nashville; he also performed at the Ryman Auditorium in 1954 on the Grand Ole Opry and his gold Cadillac currently shines for all to see at Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame.

As far as we know, no hotels have hung out a shingle saying "Elvis Slept Here," but a waitress at the old IHOP on 21st Avenue claimed to have served Mr. Presley pancakes on one of his stays in the city. Alas, the IHOP is no more: it was razed in 2002 to make way for a parking lot for Vanderbilt.
