The song features the talent of country music hitmaker, Pam Tillis, in a duet with Kris Thomas, a Memphis native and rising R&B star.

The video was filmed on Beale Street and other locations in Memphis including Graceland and Sun Studios. A special segment of the video highlights the Stax Music Academy kids. The video is a heartfelt and moving testimate to the lives of two modern day icons, Elvis Presley and Martin Luther King.

The song was written by Pam Tillis and Brenda Berger O'Brien. Brenda shared a special legacy and friendship with Elvis. Her family owned the largest and most famous dinner club in the Mid South, the Plantation Inn. The legendary Plantation Inn was located in West Memphis, Arkansas and introduced Jazz greats Phineas Newborn, Calvin Newborn and Herman Green to the public as well as the fabric of what would become the Memphis Sound and Stax Records. Recording artists Willie Mitchell, Issac Hayes, Al Jackson, William Bell and others got their start there. A young Elvis Presley visited there many times before being discovered by Sam Phillips at Sun Records.

Venerable Memphis DJ, Mitch McCracken, predicts a hit with the song and video. "The song is very special and would be a great piece of music without the famous personages that it is dedicated to. But the shadows of Elvis and Martin Luther that the song evokes and their impact on our lives puts it in a league with "Abraham, Martin & John" or "Walking in Memphis".

With this video, Memphis continues to uphold its homages as "The home of the blues and the birthplace of rock and roll", with a little help from Pam, Kris, Brenda, and the West Memphis' Plantation Inn.
