Lainey Wilson and Kane Brown joined John Legend, Alanis Morissette, Kacey Musgraves, Post Malone, and The War And Treaty in the star-studded lineup to celebrate the legacy of Elvis Presley and the spirit of the holiday season. The special, Christmas at Graceland, aired on NBC last night (11/29).
The tribute to Elvis was filmed inside the Graceland estate. A press release said, “Through these spectacular performances, viewers will be invited to witness firsthand the legacy and spirit of this treasured family home.” The artists also offered viewers an intimate look inside Graceland.
Elvis Presley’s granddaughter actor Riley Keough, made a special appearance and served as an executive producer on the show.
Christmas at Graceland was the first televised concert from the estate and featured never-before broadcast footage of Elvis.
Lainey posted to her Instagram this morning (11/30) a video clip of her wearing an Elvis outfit in his Graceland living room and behind-the-scenes moments from the show. She captioned the post, “Well y’all…I sure am in the Christmas spirit now! What a way to officially ring in the holidays by honoring the rock n roll legend himself, @elvis, at the beautiful @visitgraceland.”
Many of Wilson’s two million followers reacted to the post with one writing, “That show was fantastic, congrats to everyone involved. Elvis would be proud.” Another die-hard fan commented, Loved this show within the Presley home… What a beautiful place, with wonderful music and an amazing show. Thank you, Lainey.” One more fan said, “Absolutely GORGEOUS! Loving that red jumpsuit! I can’t wait to watch the show!!”
