Elvis Presley wasn't swayed by discouragement, and it's a good thing. The singer made his first -- and last -- Grand Ole Opry appearance on this day (Oct. 2) in 1954 ... and it didn't go as well as he had hoped.
Fifty-nine years ago today (April 23, 1956) might be a day that Elvis Presley would have rather forgotten. It was on this day that the King of Rock and Roll made his debut in Las Vegas -- but he quickly learned that his superstardom didn't extend to Sin City.
On what would have been his 80th birthday (Jan. 8), Elvis Presley's first-ever recording was auctioned off for a staggering $300,000 -- and the mystery buyer has been revealed as none other than rocker Jack White.
