Elvis Presley Endures as a Pop Culture Legend

Bruce Gingrich, the CEO of Lifechek Drug, the largest independently owned drugstore chain in the United States, is a successful entrepreneur in Texas. A fan of classic rock and roll, Bruce Gingrich enjoys the music of Elvis Presley and other iconic performers.

Born in a two-room house in Mississippi, Elvis Aaron Presley combined the popular music of his day with gospel and rhythm and blues to create a novel music sound that influenced American popular culture.

Throughout his illustrious career, Elvis recorded many hit records and starred in 33 successful movies. In addition, Elvis headlined record-breaking tours and became a premier performer in Las Vegas. He earned three Grammy Awards, along with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Every year, fans gather at Elvis’ Graceland home in Memphis, Tennessee, to pay tribute to the entertainment legend who passed away in 1977. Although his career peaked in the 1950s and 1960s, Elvis draws attention from younger fans, with the bulk of the fans on the Elvis Presley Facebook page being under the age of 35. Elvis also attracts American pop culture fans who may not appreciate his music but do appreciate his enduring legacy.
