The telegram sent by Elvis Presley to his parents in November 1954 giving a glimpse into the young singer’s priorities and his optimism, as he begins what will become a career as a rock ’n’ roll icon and cultural phenomenon, is being displayed in an exhibit at Graceland.

The exhibit commemorates the 60 years since Presley cut his first record, “That’s All Right,” at Sun Studio in July 1954.

It was played on the radio days later, and many believe its release marked the birth of mainstream rock ’n’ roll.
