Profile Bio Text
Carl Lee Perkins (April 9, 1932 – January 19, 1998) was an American rockabilly musician who recorded most notably at Sun Records Studio in Memphis, Tennessee, beginning during 1954. His best known song is "Blue Suede Shoes". According to Charlie Daniels, "Carl Perkins` songs personified the rockabilly era, and Carl Perkins` sound personifies the rockabilly sound more so than anybody involved in it, because he never changed." Perkins` songs were recorded by artists (and friends) as influential as Elvis Presley, the Beatles, and Johnny Cash, which further cemented his place in the history of popular music. Called "the King of Rockabilly", he was inducted into the Rock and Roll, the Rockabilly, and the Nashville Songwriters Halls of Fame; and was a Grammy Hall of Fame Award recipient.
