Sun Records – History and Legacy
Inherent in the music of Sun is a vibrancy that survives to this day. Sincere, passionate music. Music that has stood the test of time. It is music that has reached across race, age and gender boundaries. It reflects the diversity and vision of the talent that recorded on the Sun label, and indeed, American popular culture itself. – History | Sun Records

Between the diverse music and fun stories, fans will get a special glance into how Sam Phillips and his crew created some of the most iconic music of all time that continues to reach across race, age and gender boundaries.”
