Elvis’ 68 Comeback Special is…Well, Coming Back!

The Elvis All-Star Tribute Special will feature some of your favorite artists

The Elvis All-Star Tribute will air February 17th on NBC. The special will feature the likes of country stars Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, Pistol Annies, Darius Rucker (as well as artists from other music genres).

Elvis’ widow Priscilla Presley will also appear on the special, as will his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley.

The special will create the look and feel of The King’s legendary ‘68 Comeback Special.

While I am super excited to hear Elvis’ music, I get a little nervous as to how well the tribute show will be pulled off. I mean, come on, the original special was just iconic.

Just LOOK at Elvis..
