Trisha Yearwood to Ring in Holiday Season at Graceland
Trisha Yearwood will help kickstart Graceland's holiday season this November.
The three-time Grammy award-winning country artist will flip the switch at Elvis Presley's home during Graceland's holiday lighting ceremony in Memphis, Tenn., on Nov. 20. Yearwood will also perform during the seasonal festivities with patients from Le Bonheur Children's Hospital.
"I love Elvis, always have," Yearwood says. "I’ve visited Graceland many times, but never at Christmas. I’m incredibly honored to be invited to flip the switch at Graceland’s holiday lighting ceremony this year."
According to a press release, Graceland's Christmas display includes hundreds of blue lights along the driveway, a life-size Nativity scene, Santa and his sleigh and much more. All of the decorations that will be showcased were originally displayed at Graceland by Elvis and the Presley family.
Even Santa will channel Elvis and arrive by limousine in his red jumpsuit. Kids attending the free event will be able to take photos with Santa.
Seasonal holiday tours will begin on Nov. 20 and continue through Presley's birthday celebration in January. The lighting ceremony and Yearwood's performance begins at 6PM CT at Graceland. For those not able to travel to Memphis, the Graceland lighting ceremony will be broadcast live on www.graceland.com and Elvis Radio, SiriusXM Channel 19.
