After the passing of Elvis in 1977, Merle wanted to pay tribute to the King, and did so with an album filled with Elvis' covers, My Farewell To Elvis. The album was Merle's 27th to be released, and the tribute, My Farewell To Elvis, reached #6 on the Billboard Hot Country Albums chart.
"Heartbreak Hotel" was released in 1956 as the first single from Elvis' newest record label, RCA Victor. The heartfelt single was a hit, reaching #1 on the Billboard Top 100 and staying in that position for seven weeks. By 1995, the song was recognized as one of the 500 Greatest Songs of all Time according to Rolling Stone Magazine. Amazing!
We're pretty sure that even Elvis would be impressed with Merle's cover of this classic tune... we know we are!
