Storyline

A recreation from one of the world's greatest jam sessions. On December 4th, 1956 Carl Perkins' career was flying high from his hit "Blue Suede Shoes." New to the scene, Jerry Lee Lewis is brought in to work on a new song with Perkins. Then, low and behold, super star Elvis Presley and country music legend Johnny Cash stop by the studio for a visit. The songs they sang on that epic day became the concept for Million Dollar Quartet, a fun, inventive retelling of their impromptu recording session.

Trivia

Johnny Cash sits on his bed in episode 3 of season 1, and another army officer invites him to watch a film on Folsom Prison. Following the denial of the offer, Johnny Cash ad-libs lyrics about Folsom Prison. Later in his career as a singer, Johnny Cash recorded a song called "Folsom Prison Blues." See more »

Crazy Credits

John Holiday who portrays Carl Perkins in Fox's "Walk the Line", is back in Cash's band as Luther Perkins in "Sun Records". Played live guitar in both! Now that is a crazy credit. See more »

Not perfect but still a fun and entertaining series
9 April 2017 | by dgmpSee all my reviews

So what if it's not 100% correct on ages and time lines of events? (Hank Snow was older than those emerging singers in real life... does it bother me that he is portrayed younger? No.)

Billy Gardell (from the CBS sitcom "Mike and Molly") shows an impressive range of acting with his portrayal of Col. Tom Parker. The maniacal "Dewey Phillips" character as an out of control disc jockey is hilarious. There is too much good about this series to let it be outweighed by nit-picking as they call it in the south.
