Premieres Saturday, November 17 at 8 PM ET/PT on Hallmark Channel
The film was shot on location at the historic home of the late legend, the one and only King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley. The holiday film is filled with music made famous by Elvis, America’s first rock and roll superstar and one of the most important cultural forces in history. Christmas At Graceland is part of Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas annual programming event.
In Christmas At Graceland, Laurel (Pickler), a Chicago-based business executive travels to Memphis to secure one of the city’s oldest family-owned banks. While in Memphis, Laurel reunites with an old flame Clay (Wes Brown), a local music promoter with loftier aspirations. Though Laurel tries to keep her eye on the prize of the business acquisition, Clay is very persuasive reminding her of the days when they were a performing duo on the brink of stardom. Now Laurel’s focus turns to the home of the Blues and dreams of making music again.
“Kellie Pickler is one of country music’s biggest stars, and we are thrilled to welcome her to Hallmark Channel to star in a movie we feel certain will become an instant holiday classic,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming & Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. “In Christmas At Graceland, big obstacles inspire big dreams and our stars will discover any two instruments can play in harmony as long as the music is right. Not only are we thrilled to take viewers into one of America’s most beloved private residences, home of the late, great Elvis Presley, we are also thrilled to put the soundtrack of Elvis’ legendary career behind our romantic holiday movie,” Vicary concluded.
