Happy Birthday to the King of Rock and Roll!

Oh Elvis. Where were we before you came along? Who did people impersonate? How did we know that peanut butter and banana sandwiches were the best? Would we have thought that anyone besides Liberace could pull off metallic and jewels?

Elvis Aaron Presley has a birthday this weekend, Sunday, January 8. He would be 77 years old if he were still alive today. I don't have to tell you about the impact that Elvis had on music, movies and just the world in general. People are still listening to his music, performing as him for a living and some are still on the hunt for Elvis - convinced he is still alive.

Since we can't bring the real Elvis to Northwest Arkansas, we've got the next best thing - Cody Slaughter, 2011 Elvis Presley Enterprises 'Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist.' Slaughter hails from our neighbor down the road, Harrison, AR, and is currently on the road with the national tour of Million Dollar Quartet. You may remember we sent a couple members of our Communications team to see the show last month, and they got to meet the impressive young Elvis impersonator.

It will blow your socks off when you see Cody Slaughter perform as Elvis in Million Dollar Quartet. Not only is his singing impressive, his looks - his looks!! - will make you think you're seeing things. I mean, this guy is g-o-o-d.
