The legendary meeting was masterminded by Sun Records' founder Sam Phillips, who discovered all four
of the musicians, and brought Elvis Presley (and his then girlfriend) back to the recording studio that
launched him to stardom. Together with Sun Records' fast?rising new superstar Johnny Cash and Carl
Perkins, who was still chasing his next big hit after writing and recording Blue Suede Shoes, the fourth
member of this impromptu "quartet" was Phillips' latest signing, Jerry Lee Lewis.
Million Dollar Quartet is a story of fame, friendship, discovery, divided loyalties, professional jealousy
and incredible music as four of the music industry's most extraordinary talents, all in their creative prime,
made music together for the first and only time in their careers.
