The Pea Pickin’ Hearts are All Shook Up!

Watch a classic Elvis Video!All Shook Up…

One of the first three albums I owned was an Elvis Presley Greatest Hits album.  I sang All Shook Up at the top of my lungs with my great aunt Maggie B., and I was in Maggie B’s little yellow convertible Covair with the leopard print seats the day I found out Elvis Presley died.

We pulled into a 7 Eleven to buy milk, and there in front of the store was a newspaper box with a huge red headline, “Elvis Dead.”  Maggie B. slumped over the steering wheel and cried for a solid five minutes, heart broken into a million little pieces.

Today would have been Elvis’ 76th birthday. 

 

He remains an influence on all I love about music and showmanship.  He is missed.  In honor of his birthday, the Pea Pickin’ Hearts would like to share this tribute

Happy Birthday, Elvis!
