Why T Bone Burnett Left 'Nashville'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
T Bone Burnett, Hollywood's prolific producer for soundtracks (like the Grammy-winning "O Brother, Where Art Thou?") and musicians (Elton John, Lisa Marie Presley among many others), gave a candid interview to The Hollywood Reporter about his career and his tumultuous time serving as the music producer for "Nashville." The ABC series created and executive produced by Burnett's wife, Callie Khouri, needed someone who had serious knowledge of country music and the music business in general, so it was only natural for her to call on her husband for producing duties while getting the show off the ground. For the second season of "Nashville" Burnett stepped down from his music producer role, leading some to believe there was trouble for the married couple behind the song-filled series, but Burnett said it was actually the network's different visions for the show that led to him leaving. "Some people were making a drama about real musicians' lives, and some were making a soap opera, so ...

    More Details Hide Details I would like to have my life out there in my own words, rather than speculations." After Elvis' death at Graceland on August 16, 1977, his will appointed his father, Vernon Presley, executor and trustee. His fortune had dwindled to $5 million. The beneficiaries of the trust were Vernon, Elvis' grandmother Minnie Mae Presley, and his nine-year-old daughter Lisa Marie Presley, whose inheritance was to be held in trust until her 25th birthday. After Vernon's death in 1979, Elvis' ex-wife Priscilla Presley was named as one of three trustees in his will; the others being the National Bank of Commerce in Memphis, and Joseph Hanks, who had been Elvis and Vernon's accountant.

    Her third album, Storm & Grace, was released on May 15, 2012.
    More Details Hide Details She said: "It's much more of a rootsy record, organic record, than my previous work." It is produced by Oscar and Grammy winner T-Bone Burnett. Allmusic offered this view: "On her first two albums, Lisa Marie Presley wanted to be a pop star with a difference; on Storm & Grace, she clearly would rather be an artist, and if she's still working her musical shortcomings out of her system, this is a stronger, more mature, and more effective work than one might have expected. Nearly ten years into a recording career she may or may not have wanted, Presley is finally developing a musical personality that truly suits her." Spinner.com observed: "Presley has made the strongest album of her career in the upcoming Storm & Grace. It's a moody masterpiece, exploring the demons and angels of her life to the tune of country-spiced downbeat pop."
    In February 2012, Lisa Marie Presley opened a new exhibit, "Elvis...

In November 1975, her father named one of his private aircraft, a converted Convair 880 jet (original passenger capacity: 100), after her.

The "Lisa Marie" and one of Elvis' other planes, "Hound Dog II", are currently on exhibit at the Graceland mansion museum of Elvis Presley in Memphis, Tennessee. In January 2015 it was reported that both planes were for sale. They are no longer airworthy but their current undisclosed owner is hoping to gain $10M in total.
