The Nashville Elvis Festival kicked off on Friday morning in downtown Franklin at the Franklin Theatre.

Just ahead of the first evening experience, we visited local merchants in downtown Franklin with tribute artist Cote Deonath, watch the video below.

Friday morning, we stopped by Elvis in Concert featuring Michael Cullipher, Cote Deonath, and Dean Z where they performed songs from Elvis’s entire career, hits from the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

The festival continues throughout the weekend with the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, Gospel concert on Sunday morning, movie event on Sunday afternoon and closing the weekend is a concert with John Schneider and Gary Chapman. Few tickets remain, buy them here.
