Two days after his twenty-first birthday Elvis Presley made his first recordings for RCA Records at The Methodist television, radio & TV Studios in Nashville. One of the songs recorded that day was ‘Heartbreak Hotel.’ Steve Sholes, RCA’s head of Country & Western wasn’t so sure about the track, feeling that it was too gloomy and not the sound that RCA had been hoping to get from Elvis. Elvis was adamant that it would be his first single and he eventually got his way.
