The song "If I'd Only Bought Her Roses", apparently co-written by Elvis Presley, surfaced last month at auction on eBay and was bought by Chris Davidson from the Elvis-A-Rama museum. The song, a bittersweet ballad of lost love and regret, was never recorded by Elvis, according to sources Elvis considered it "too personal and painful," at the time.
"We're looking for the world's best Elvis impersonator to record the song," said Davidson. "We hope to consummate an agreement with a production company for a multi-episode reality TV show. The Elvis-A-Rama Museum is in the process of creating an international contest for the impersonators with tryouts likely to be held in Sydney, Frankfurt, Tokyo, London, New York, Los Angeles and Memphis as prime locations. Final selection will take place in Las Vegas.
