Johnny Cash Impersonates Elvis

From 1959, see Johnny Cash do an impersonation of someone impersonating Elvis Presley:

If you were hoping to hear a straight up rendition of “Heartbreak Hotel” then you were sorely disappointed!

Both Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash started their careers with Sun Records, the legendary music publishing company out of Memphis, Tennessee. Both Cash and Presley were known to hold the other in high esteem.

Fun to see this lighter side of Johnny Cash. Notice at the end he says, “We hoped you enjoyed that impersonation of Roy Acuff.”
