Lainey Wilson and Kane Brown joined John Legend, Alanis Morissette, Kacey Musgraves, Post Malone, and The War And Treaty in the star-studded lineup to celebrate the legacy of Elvis Presley and the spirit of the holiday season. The special, Christmas at Graceland, aired on NBC last night (11/29).

The tribute to Elvis was filmed inside the Graceland estate. A press release said, “Through these spectacular performances, viewers will be invited to witness firsthand the legacy and spirit of this treasured family home.” The artists also offered viewers an intimate look inside Graceland.

Elvis Presley’s granddaughter actor Riley Keough, made a special appearance and served as an executive producer on the show.

Christmas at Graceland was the first televised concert from the estate and featured never-before broadcast footage of Elvis.

Lainey posted to her Instagram this morning (11/30) a video clip of her wearing an Elvis outfit in his Graceland living room and behind-the-scenes moments from the show. She captioned the post, “Well y’all…I sure am in the Christmas spirit now! What a way to officially ring in the holidays by honoring the rock n roll legend himself, @elvis, at the beautiful @visitgraceland.”

Many of Wilson’s two million followers reacted to the post with one writing, “That show was fantastic, congrats to everyone involved. Elvis would be proud.” Another die-hard fan commented, Loved this show within the Presley home… What a beautiful place, with wonderful music and an amazing show. Thank you, Lainey.” One more fan said, “Absolutely GORGEOUS! Loving that red jumpsuit! I can’t wait to watch the show!!”

Post Malone, who also performed on the NBC special, said after his performance of “You’re The Devil In Disguise,” “I love you so very much and I love you so very much, Elvis. Have a great night and a Merry Christmas.”

  • Lainey Wilson - "Santa Claus Is Back In Town"

    Dressed in an Elvis jumpsuit complete with a cape and her signature bell bottoms, Lainey sang a soulful version of Elvis’ “Santa Claus Is Back In Town” in front of Graceland while her band played in a bed of a red and white vintage Chevy truck and one of Presley’s 1950s Cadillacs. Wilson also donned a red cowboy hat for the energetic performance honoring the King.

  • Kane Brown - "Blue Christmas"

    Kane sang one of Presley’s most famous Christmas songs, “Blue Christmas,” in the Graceland barn at Elvis’ Memphis residence, now owned by his granddaughter Riley. The barn even had horses, and Brown walked by them as he sang. Dressed in a black turtleneck and a brown suit, Kane, at one point, sat outside of the barn on a bench and sang straight to the camera as the blue lights of the nearby outdoor Christmas tree shined brightly. Elvis’s own images appeared on the outside of the barn during the song as the King sang along with Brown who looked up at the King as he paid tribute to him in song. At the end of the performance, Kane said, “Thank you, Elivs, and Merry Christmas, everybody.”

  • Post Malone - "You're The Devil In Disguise"

    Post Malone was dressed in a leopard skin suit, standing outside at the Graceland pool to sing his version of Presley’s “You’re The Devil In Disguise.” Posty’s version of the beloved Elvis song was passionate and a bit slower than how Elvis sang the song. Malone played a vintage Gibson guitar, during the performance.
