This trip was three weeks long and they visited six states in total. When they got to Sun Studios in Memphis, TN, they took part in the museum tour. While on the tour Elvis’ hit song “Hound Dog” came on and Hurt was singing along to the song very quietly. The tour guide employee heard her singing it and came up and told Hurt to stay behind.
