Sun Studio. It’s well-known in the music industry as the birthplace of rock and 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, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and countless others started their recording careers.

We were lucky to have a great and humorous guide who talked us through how forward thinking and adventurous Sam Phillips created Sun Studios. How the story of how Elvis started and the million dollar quartet. To be in the very studio where it all happened was simply amazing

You HAVE to go here if you are a fan of the music from Memphis. Our guide was knowledgeable and engaging. The music, the history and just being in the room where some of the most influential music from the United States was made was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
