Stars of the Rock 'n' Roll HighwayBook - 2015
If Memphis is the birthplace of rock n roll, it spent its adolescence along U.S. Highway 67. Known today as Rock n Roll Highway 67, it runs from Newport, Arkansas, to the Missouri border. It is here that the first rock n rollers--such as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins--honed their skills and played along the two-lane road with local talent such as Conway Twitty, Sonny Burgess, and Charlie Rich. In these pages, author Vicki Pasmore takes you on a guided tour of the Rock n Roll Highway to meet 20 of the entertainers who gave it its name.
