January is Elvis Presley's birthday month! Let's celebrate with this collection of videos showing country music stars covering Elvis' songs!

January 8th marks the birthday of the “King of Rock and Roll,” Elvis Presley. Had he lived, the icon would now be 85-years-old! The superstar’s legacy has continued to live on even after his death in 1977 at the age of 42. He has become one of the best selling artists of all time with estimated sales of 600 million units worldwide. He was also inducted into a total five music hall of fames— Country Music Hall of Fame (’98), Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (’86), Gospel Music Hall of Fame (’01), the Rockabilly Hall of Fame (’07), and the Memphis Music Hall of Fame (’12).

The versatile entertainer has left a lasting impression on many artists, even some of our favorite country music artists! To celebrate Elvis’ legacy, let’s check out some covers of the star’s tunes by some of country’s best.

Scotty McCreery “That’s All Right” 

Dolly Parton “All Shook Up”

It seems as though “Suspicious Minds” has been a popular tune for country artists to cover! The next three videos feature that familiar song.

Luke Bryan “Suspicious Minds”

Martina McBride “Suspicious Minds”

Tim McGraw & Crew “Suspicious Minds”

In honor of the King, share this piece with other Elvis fans and enjoy his performance of “Return to Sender” from his 1962 film Girls! Girls! Girls! below!

“Return to Sender” Lyrics 

Return to sender, return to sender
I gave a letter to the postman, he put it his sack
Bright in early next morning, he brought my letter back
She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone
We had a quarrel, a lover’s spat
I write I’m sorry but my letter keeps coming back
So then I dropped it in the mailbox and sent it special D
Bright in early next morning it came right back to me
She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such person, no such zone
This time I’m gonna take it myself and put it right in her hand
And if it comes back the very next day then I’ll understand
The writing on it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone
Return to sender, return to sender
Return to sender, return to sender
