The future King was then still the Hillbilly Cat- a local up-and-comer in Sam Phillips stable of young rockabilly artists on Sun Records. Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash - who also performed that night - were both part of a package tour headlined by country star Webb Pierce at the Sheffield Community Center on the night of August 2, 1955. After an outrageous onstage flirtation, the twenty-year-old singer asked the seventeen-year-old high school student for a date on the scrap of paper he was using to sign an autograph after the show.

The couple headed out in Elviss pink Cadillac Fleetwood Series Sixty only to find themselves leading a spontaneous parade of vehicles through the small town streets. After stopping at a roadside diner for a late night repast of soda pop and burnt bacon sandwiches, they began an ongoing discussion about life, love, fame, and destiny. Unknown to Caroline at the time, Elvis had just come to a historic crossroads in his life. A complex series of events was taking place behind-the-scenes that would critically impact his career and his personal fate. In How Bout a Date? Caroline Cahoon Hauser captures the feel of small-town America in the South during the 1950s and paints an authentic portrait of the young Elvis Presley on the brink of stardom.
