Lisa Marie Presley will make her Grand Ole Opry  debut on August 21. Lisa Marie’s latest album, the Americana release Storm & Grace, is her debut on Universal Republic/XIX Recordings. The project was produced by Grammy-winner T Bone Burnett.
Lisa Marie’s father, Elvis Presley , made his one and only Opry appearance on October 2, 1954 where he sang his version of Bill Monroe’s “Blue Moon of Kentucky.” As written in Peter Guralnick’s Last Train to Memphis: The Rise of Elvis Presley, producer Sam Phillips was worried about seeing Bill Monroe backstage that night, concerned about his reaction to Elvis’ cover of the song.
“I’d heard he was going to break my jaw!” Sam Phillips is quoted as saying. When Sam and Elvis met Bill Monroe at the Opry, however, he “came right out and complimented them.” He also told them he had cut a new version of the song himself that was similar in sound to theirs.
