Elvis Presley | Receiving the Bing Crosby Award | August 28, 1971
In his dressing room Elvis receives a lifetime achievement award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS). There have only been five previous recipients of the award: Bing Crosby (for whom it has just been renamed), Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and Irving Berlin.
This is one of the few legitimate forms of recognition that Elvis gets from the recording industry during his lifetime - but it is a highly significant one. Photo below, NARAS reps, Bing Crosby's nephew, Chris with Elvis.
