The band appeared regularly at the Eagle’s Nest club in Memphis and toured several Southern cities. It was their appearance on the Louisiana Hayride that became the catapult for Elvis’ entertainment career. Scotty and Bill would part ways with Elvis in 1958. In 2007, The Blue Moon Boys were inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.
