Jerry Lee Lewis To Open The Lewis Ranch For Tours On April 29, 2017

Nesbit, MS – The Lewis Ranch is pleased to announce that Jerry Lee Lewis will open The Lewis Ranch, located at 1595 Malone Rd. near Nesbit, Mississippi, for tours once again on April 29, 2017.

The Lewis Ranch has been Jerry Lee Lewis’ private getaway for decades and is the place where he composes his music—and spends time with his family. Now he’s opening the doors once again to give fans a look at the life of a rock ‘n’ roll legend. Starting Saturday, April 29, 2017, The Lewis Ranch will be open for private, small group tours Monday – Saturday from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Tours are $30 per person and can be purchased from The Lewis Ranch website www.thelewisranch.com/events.

Jerry Lee Lewis said, “I love all my fans. When they look back on me I want ’em to remember me not for all my wives, although I’ve had a few, and certainly not for any mansions or high livin’ money I made and spent. I want ’em to remember me simply for my music.”

Jerry Lee Lewis’ son, Jerry Lee Lewis III said, “Jerry Lee Lewis is Rock ‘n’ Roll’s ‘first great wild man’ and has a storied reputation. But the real story of the Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll runs much deeper—a man who is both rowdy and religious, famous and humble, who came from simple roots and worked hard to make it in music. At The Lewis Ranch, we’ll take you behind Jerry Lee’s public image and give you an intimate look at his early life, his climb to success, and the way he lives today.”

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
