Unlike the many acts paying tribute to the King, Jerry Presley can honestly call Elvis family. Aside from sharing the same last name, Jerry and Elvis had many similarities from having an identical twin to singing gospel music at their church. Having been 15 years younger than Elvis, Jerry and his twin brother Terry looked up to their legendary relative and had fond memories of visiting Elvis at his home and joining him at the movies. Performing for more than 36 years, Jerry first gained attention for his tribute to the King when he performed at his own theater, “The King’s Mansion” in Branson, Mo., where he impressed Elvis fans with his act. A singer in his own right, he has performed with many famous artists including Jackie Wilson, The Drifters, The Platters, The Coasters, Lou Rawls, Tanya Tucker, Barbara Mandrell, Billy Dean, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, and former members of The Stamps Quartet among many other famous entertainers.
