Grab those blue suede shoes along with a pink polka dot bikini and head to the Arts Center of Cannon County over at 7:30 Friday night, May 25th. Begin the Memorial Day weekend with a visit to 1424 John Bragg Highway in neighboring Woodbury, where you'll feel the earth move.

This Special Memorial Day Weekend Event will include 28 songs from the four artists such as Get Rhythm, Heartbreak Hotel, Breathless, Sure to Fall, Don't Be Cruel, Your True Love, Folsom Prison Blues, Great Balls of Fire, Love Me, and many more! Portraying the roles of the rock legends will be some familiar faces to the Arts Center of Cannon County.

Daxton Patrick portrays Jerry Lee Lewis, the Killer. Patrick is a local to Cannon County graduating from Cannon County High School and a recent graduate of MTSU. He has a rock and roll connoisseur for the majority of his life winning a few competitions playing the sort of music you can hear from this show.


Jacob Miller will be playing as Carl Perkins, the King of Rockabilly. Miller brings Carl Perkins to live with his electrifying guitar playing. As a virtuoso, Jacob has mastered instruments such as piano, guitar, bass, and many more. Miller is also a local to the Cannon County area graduating valedictorian from Cannon County High School and recently receiving a bachelor's degree at MTSU.

Stephen Hardy will be returning to portray the Man in Black, Johnny Cash. Hardy is from the South Carolina area graduating from Erskine College in 2016. He has since been traveling mostly around the southeast to play Johnny Cash in several theatres. You will be blown away by his likeness and musical ability to portray such a hard character as Johnny Cash.


With electrifying energy on stage, Justin Foster is returning as the King himself, Elvis Presley. Foster's journey to Nashville is one of courage and inspiration. Taking the risk of homelessness, Foster moved to Nashville in hopes of becoming a musician. His charisma can be displayed through witty one-liners and jaw dropping dance moves. Foster is an uncanny resemblance to Elvis and his demeanor making you question if the King is reincarnated.
