GEORGIA RADIO - This week, Matt Jolley's Classic Country & Request is turning up the volume and donning its blue suede shoes in honor of the King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis Presley, whose birthday falls on Monday. Elvis, who would have been 88 this year, left an indelible mark on the music industry, transcending genres, and Matt Jolley is making sure the legend's impact is felt on the airwaves.
"Elvis's impact on music, not just country music, was massive," says Matt Jolley, the host of Classic Country & Request. "His unique style, charisma, and revolutionary approach to music continue to influence artists across genres. We're dedicating this week's shows to celebrate the life and legacy of the one and only Elvis Presley." Classic Country & Request, a popular show broadcast on GeorgiaRadio.com and the My Georgia Radio listening app for iPhone and Android, airs on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings. Listeners can expect a special lineup of Elvis's hits and lesser known "country influenced" songs, spanning the eras that made him an icon.
"We'll be featuring a few of his songs on the show this week, giving folks a chance to relive some of the magic that Elvis brought to the world of music," Jolley adds.
Listeners are encouraged to be a part of the celebration by reaching out to the show with their favorite Elvis requests or sharing personal stories about how the King has impacted their lives.
"We want to hear from our audience. Whether it's your favorite Elvis song or a story about how his music has been a soundtrack to your life, we want to celebrate together," Jolley states. "It's the fans that make these tributes truly special, and we're excited to hear their Elvis stories."
