Instead, Burton’s targets are children he and his James Burton Foundation give guitars to, the possible guitar and music superstars of tomorrow. “I want to give something back to the community,” said Burton, a Minden native who gained fame as the bandleader and lead guitarist for Elvis Presley, Rick Nelson and John Denver. “I want them to have a place where they can sit down and record CDs, to encourage them to play and do better.” The public opening of the studio at 714 Elvis Presley Ave. is at 1 p.m., on what would have been Presley’s 76th birthday. Presley first performed professionally at the original Louisiana Hayride in the Municipal Auditorium, which now is fronted by life-sized statues of Presley and Burton.
