Traveling Song

I open my door and this is what I see.

Sun Studio. Where Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis all recorded some of their first songs here and you can just feel it. During the tour you can grab one of the mics used my Elvis and donated by studio owner Sam Phillips and stand in the same spots on the same floor that they did. The floor tiles, soundproofing walls/ceiling, light fixtures, equipment, piano, are. all. the. same. I had goosebumps on my arms for almost the entire time. Our guide was awesome and loved what she was doing. Musical history remains unchanged, just staffed by bearded guys and energetic gals.
