One famous “cowboy” swapped his boots for some blue suede shoes over Thanksgiving weekend.
Robert James “Bob” Ritchie, or more commonly known as Kid Rock, visited Graceland Saturday for the first time.
“I’ve been very fortunate and blessed to be able to do a lot of cool things,” Rock wrote in his blog. “Private tour of graceland last night is definatley one of them!”
The singer-songwriter and rapper has five Grammy Award nominations under his belt, and his most recent album – Rock N Roll Jesus – has sold 5 million albums worldwide.
While Elvis’ sold album count – approximately 1 billion – certainly takes the cake, Rock’s 22 million albums to date in the United States isn’t too shabby. Rock also shares a love of acting with his rock ‘n’ roll hero.
“Its more than worth the trip!” he published, along with some shots of him in the jungle room. “God bless you Memphis and Rock on Elvis!”
