According to A Boy a from Tupelo page 250, this photo is from May 27, 1955 in Texarkana.

In reading through the book, there are a lot of photos being dated "around" or considered "likely" around dates but this one doesn't have that so May 27 must be the date.

As noted, the photo was taken on Friday, May 27, 1955, at the Municipal Auditorium in Texarkana, Arkansas.

Singing with him are Maxine and Jim Ed Brown, who are also on the tour. It would be interesting to confirm what song they are sharing. It's in the key of C, according to the photo.

Below is a Dallas newspaper ad placed that same day, for a show on Sunday. Ironically, Elvis was not really a member of the Opry, he was just touring with the others who were.
