Sun Records was founded in 1952 by Sam Phillips in Memphis, Tennessee. Sun Records and its stable of talented musicians were responsible for helping shape the genres of rock and roll and rockabilly!

Sun Records broke onto the national scene in 1954 when a young Elvis released the song “That’s All Right”. Elvis fused the blues, country and R&B in a new style of music never before heard! With the release of “Mystery Train” and “Blue Moon of Kentucky”, Elvis became a household name, serving as proof of Sun Records’ reputation as a record label producing groundbreaking hits!

Johnny Cash signed with Sun Records in 1955 and recorded hits like “I Walk the Line” and “Folsom Prison Blues”. Other artists like Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Roy Orbison were associated with Sun Records.
