Lisa Marie Presley champions life in rural England
AS the only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, daughter Lisa Marie was born into a world of fame and fortune on an almost unimaginable scale.
But two years ago she turned her back on the glitz of showbiz capital Los Angeles for a quiet life in rural East Sussex.
And now the 44-year-old singer and mum-of-four has exclusively opened up to The Sun about her new life on her sheep farm in the sleepy village of Rotherfield.
The singer has always tried to pave her own path, but at age 44, it looks like she wants to embrace her legacy. She is releasing a video in which she sings one of her famous father's songs along with him.
It's hard to believe, but Lisa Marie Presley is now two years older than her father Elvis was when he died, and she now fully understands the weight of her last name.
"When Lisa Marie Presley said she was done fighting her legacy as the only child of rock 'n' roll king Elvis, she apparently meant it," said Reuters.
Elvis' daughter went back to a 1956 album to remake a single that's being released this week.
Been a while since you've heard Elvis Presley on the radio?
As a special gift to Elvis' legion of passionate fans, his daughter, Lisa Marie, rerecorded the song "I Love You Because," from the King's very first album, to be played during the 35th anniversary of her father's death this past August. But the song and its accompanying video—a duet between father and daughter—were such a hit during the Elvis Week celebration that Lisa Marie is releasing the single to iTunes today (Oct. 16). The video will premiere on CMT on Thursday (Oct. 18).
