The Louisiana Hayride, 3-21-56.. My Mom and Dad and his two sisters, used to travel and sing together. My dad said that they played the Louisiana Hayride together with Elvis a few times, and his remark was "He was a nice fella, I just didn't like his music. If it's not Bluegrass, I don't like it." Lol. I bet those 3 ladies LOVED it and Elvis!!!
