1955 was key year for Hank Snow, having had tremendous success prior in record sales on RCA, but as well being involved in the development of a young talent…Elvis Presley. Stephen M. Shutts, President of Rockology Auctions discovered documents at Hank Snow’s Rainbow Ranch in 2007 that shed light on Hank Snow having been greater involved in the development of Elvis Presley, more than he was credited for, thus those same documents were influential in Baz Luhrmann’s film “Elvis”.
