Celebrating Sam Phillips’ 100th Birthday at the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum
We celebrated Sam Phillips’ 100th birthday with his son, Jerry Phillips, at a special event held at the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. To celebrate, Jerry Phillips told stories of the legendary Sun Records and growing up around rock and roll icons such as Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, and many more. The event also included a tour of the Sun Records/Memphis Recording Service exhibit at the museum, which has now re-opened after renovations from flooding at the adjacent Municipal Auditorium.
Watch the panel from the event here and celebrate Sam Phillips 100th birthday with our new playlist “Celebrating Sam Phillips” on your favorite streaming platform!
