During the early 1970s, Elvis Presley would perform Las Vegas residencies at the International Hotel. Celebrities were often in the audience and one time Willie Nelson, who also famously sung Always On My Mind, went to see The King unnoticed. The story was told by Georgaan Reynolds of the Elvis Country Fan Club, who knew Willie from Austin, Texas.
Speaking with Elvis Presley expert Billy Stallings Spa Guy, Reynolds shared how she was in the line for the cheap seats at Elvis’ Las Vegas show when Willie showed up.
She asked what he was doing there and the country singer replied: “I came to see the man!”
Reynolds couldn’t remember exactly what year it was but Willie invited her in to join him in one of the more expensive curved booths.
She politely declined as “the poor man” line actually ended up getting her seats right at the front of the stage.
Reynolds said: “Elvis did not introduce Willie. I don’t think he knew he was there because he didn’t look like Willie.”
The reason being that the country singer was dressed smartly with his hair all washed and clean.
Reynolds added: “So we were coming out and Willie goes, ‘Next time I’m coming in with y’all!’” They may have been the cheap seats, but they were a better view than the booths.
According to Fox News, Willie said in 2018: “Yeah, I met [Elvis] a couple of times. He did Always on My Mind and Night Life.”
On Elvis’ struggles with fame, Willie said: “Well, it ain’t easy. Once you think it’s easy, you’re in trouble. [To achieve fame] you’ve got to want it.
“And then, when you get it, you’ve got to still want it. A lot of people, when they get it, say. ‘Wait a minute, this is too much.’”
Meanwhile, a movie biopic about Elvis is now in post-production and is due for release is summer 2022.
The upcoming film was written and directed by Moulin Rouge’s Baz Luhrmann.
