Long Description:

From Wikipedia:

"On October 2, 1954, a teenage Elvis Presley made his only Opry performance. Although the audience reacted politely to his revolutionary brand of rockabilly music, after the show he was told by Opry manager Jim Denny that he ought to return to Memphis to resume his truck-driving career, prompting him to swear never to return. In an era when the Grand Ole Opry represented solely country music, audiences did not accept Presley on the Opry because of his infusion of rhythm and blues as well as his infamous body gyrations, which many viewed as vulgar."
