Elvis Presley and James Burton.

Rockin' Elvis Statue

A statue of legendary guitarist (and Shreveport native) James Burton stands next to Elvis. In addition to Elvis, Burton played with Ricky Nelson, Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, and many others. The James Burton Foundation is across the street.

There's also a nice statue of early folk/blues singer Huddie (v) Ledbetter just half a mile east on Texas Avenue.

Rockin' Elvis Statue

The tour of municipal auditorium is great if they are offering it. Statue is outside the auditorium.
