In 1956, his most crucial and transformative year, Elvis Presley played more live shows in his breakout state, Florida than any other. There are many little-known Florida connections: The King's moonshot to fame, rising from bottom-of-the-bill nobody to the stratosphere of music stardom. In his new book, Elvis Ignited, The Rise of an Icon in Florida, five-time Emmy-award-winning journalist Bob Kealing tells us the lost story of the role the Sunshine State played in his life and musical career.
