“That's All Right”

First Love: Dixie Locke

Elvis met Dixie Locke at the First Assembly of God Church. They were crazy about each other and were together all the time. Gladys liked Dixie a lot, too, and it was Gladys's dearest wish that Elvis and Dixie would get married. Although Elvis and Dixie were very much in love, and they often went to concerts or sang together, Elvis did not tell Dixie that he planned to be a musician. Dixie and Elvis went to many radio broadcasts and to all-night performances sponsored by the Blackwood Brothers. They went to WMPS to catch programs by DJ Bob Neal, who later would become Elvis's manager. Elvis wanted to join the Songfellows, a gospel group at his church, but there was no opening for him in the band. Elvis continued to stop by the Memphis Recording Service to see Marion Keisker. He was confident that something would happen. In June 1954, something did.
