The contest, which invites fans to submit their memories about Elvis and Graceland at www.AmazingGracelandContest.com, ends this Saturday, April 7. Allen will announce the winner on Friday, April 13, during George Klein’s “Elvis Hour” radio show on Sirius XM. Since the contest began on Jan. 8, Allen has appeared on the program numerous times to read some of the thousands of entries she has received online and through the mail.
“The response to our ‘Amazing Graceland’ contest has exceeded all of our expectations,”
Allen wrote “Amazing Graceland” after visiting Elvis’ famed Graceland mansion in 2009. The powerful tribute song is the opening track on her 2011 Delta Rock Records release, Hear Me Now, and has become one of the multi-talented singer’s favorite songs to perform live.
The Amazing Graceland Contest grand prize winner and a guest will receive roundtrip airfare and three night’s hotel accommodations, admission to select Elvis Week 35th anniversary events and attractions in Memphis (Aug. 15-17 only), an autographed copy of Allen’s latest album, Hear Me Now, and a special meet-and-greet and dinner with the Grammy-nominated performer. Elvis Week 2012 is held Aug. 10-18, 2012.
