A recreation from one of the world's greatest jam sessions. On December 4th, 1956 Carl Perkins' career was flying high from his hit "Blue Suede Shoes." New to the scene, Jerry Lee Lewis is brought in to work on a new song with Perkins. Then, low and behold, super star Elvis Presley and country music legend Johnny Cash stop by the studio for a visit. The songs they sang on that epic day became the concept for Million Dollar Quartet, a fun, inventive retelling of their impromptu recording session.

Did You Know?


The diner that Ike Turner steals the tip jar from in Season 1 Episode 3 is Dyer's, a legendary diner on Beale Street Famous for fried burgers. You can tell this is dyers from the location of the bar and stove, and the red, green, and black tiling on the back wall. Dyer's is still open to the public today. See more »

Crazy Credits

John Holiday who portrays Carl Perkins in Fox's "Walk the Line", is back in Cash's band as Luther Perkins in "Sun Records". Played live guitar in both! Now that is a crazy credit. See more »

Witness the birth of Rock & Roll each week!
17 March 2017 | by ColtPython82See all my reviews

Sun Records is a Rock & Roll lovers dream come true! The actors are amazing and really do justice to the Rock Gods they are portraying. It's a shame today's generation lacks the respect and understanding for what these musical pioneers really did for the genre. Just seeing Elvis deal with the insecurities of high school, the shenanigans of Jerry Lee and his preaching cousin Jimmy Swaggart, Johnny's time in service, or Sam's journey from failure to success, really make this an entertaining piece of Americana. I stumbled across the show by accident and figured it would be mediocre at best, since CMT isn't really known for their groundbreaking series. But, I was definitely proved wrong after seeing the actors spot on performances and CMT's portrayal of Tennessee circa 1952. I know with the PC millennial of today it might be difficult for the show to find its footing, but if you love music (whether it's Hip Hop or Nirvana) these are the men who started it all. So do yourself a favor and take some time away from Facebook and Reaction videos, and go give Sun Records a spin!
