From this two-room house in Tupelo to the National Historic Landmark called Graceland, the buildings Elvis inhabited tell the story not only of a rock 'n roll icon, but also of America itself. Join us as we explore Architecture in the Life of Elvis Presley.

Elvis is consistently on the list of Highest Earning Dead Celebrities. Like the 78 rpm vinyl records that began his career, the King may be old but he can still play a tune.

Americans are obsessed with calling Graceland “tacky”. To me that means cheap bad taste. There’s nothing cheap about Graceland, outside or inside.

Does Jackie Craven dislike ante-bellum buildings architecturally?

And if you’ve every actually been there, you might even disagree that it is all bad taste.

Yes, well, shag carpet on the ceiling might not appeal to everyone, but it was great accoustically for making recordings.

But has Jackie Craven even been to Graceland? And does she live in New York or Los Angeles? If so, that might explain a few things.
