Home of the King

How can you possibly drive through Tennessee and not stop at the home of the King??

The man who transformed American music and culture and created the beginning of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley, yes folks that is who I am speaking of. We made the trip to visit Graceland, we paid the $34.00, and yes it is in fact $34.00 to see his two planes, numerous automobiles, 13.8 acres of land, one floor of the home and his grave.

We felt as though we were really embracing this piece of history, the beginning of rock & roll and the beginning of “blingdom”. Until working at Tommy I never realized how America loves and embraces bling. As we walked up to the entrance to the “home of the king” the first sign reads “enter the blingdom” and indeed we did enter the blingdom.
