Scotty McCreery To Perform At Graceland’s Annual Holiday Lighting

Scotty McCreery and Marty Stuart will help kick off the holiday season Elvis-style at Graceland on Nov. 15 when they flip the switch and help turn on the magic of the season at Graceland’s Annual Holiday Lighting Event. The event, free and open to the public, will also include a special performance by McCreery, an appearance by Santa and a 100 percent chance of “snow.”

Immediately following, the Hallmark Channel movie Christmas At Graceland will have its World Premiere on the Soundstage at Elvis Presley’s Memphis. This all-new holiday film, shot on location at Graceland, is filled with music made famous by Elvis, and stars Kellie Pickler (Pickler & Ben). Director Eric Close (Nashville) and star Wes Brown (True Blood) will attend both the Lighting Ceremony and the World Premiere to debut the new film.

The Premiere is a by-invitation, ticketed event, but complimentary tickets will be made available that night at the door based on availability. More information can be found at graceland.com/christmas.

Seasonal holiday tours of the interior of Graceland mansion, featuring the Presley family’s personal Christmas décor, will be offered through Jan. 8. The holiday festivities continue with Graceland’s 2nd Annual Holiday Concert Weekend Dec. 14-15, 2018. On Friday, Dec. 14, Elvis’ biggest Christmas hits will be performed with a live orchestra led by renown UK conductor Robin Smith and featuring local Memphis musicians, vocalists, choirs and dancers. On Saturday, Dec. 15, there will be two themed concerts on one night: an Elvis Gospel Christmas concert starring former members of JD Sumner and The Stamps Quartet and The Blackwood Brothers; and an Elvis Star-Studded Rock ‘n’ Roll show starring legendary guitarist James Burton of Elvis’ TCB Band.
