Alannah Myles Lyrics


Alannah Myles grew up splitting her time between studying
to be an artist at a vocational school for graphic arts in
Toronto and in the little northern town of Buckhorn,
Ontario on her family’s ranch riding horses and later
competing in equestrian horse shows until she decided to
make a full time career of performing.

Myles spent her commercial acting income on demo tapes in
order to find a record deal until joining creative forces
with songwriter Christopher Ward. Ward penned her now
legendary Black Velvet which won Myles a Grammy More...

    ------ About the song Black Velvet performed by Alannah Myles

See Wiki article about the song. His mother is holding him in the beginning, and yes, he was born in Mississippi. Jimmie Rodgers is the correct spelling of the name of the country singer Gladys is listening to on the Victrola. :)


Elvis and Black Velvet | Reviewer: katherine
    ------ About the song Black Velvet performed by Alannah Myles

I do agree with Natasha and Marina. It is about Elvis. He was originally from Tupelo Mississippi and later on came Memphis Tennessee. :) If I'm not mistaken I think a pet name for his mom was "velvet." Others have tried to sing this song but Alannah's is the best.
