In 2007, Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. announced an inaugural Elvis Tribute Artist contest event that was a search for the “best representation of the legacy of Elvis Presley.” Twenty-four of the best ETAs from around the world, who had each won a preliminary round of the competition, traveled to Memphis during Elvis Week 2007 to compete in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest. In response to the excitement generated by the first contest, Elvis Presley Enterprises has held the contest each year since, with winners of preliminary contests traveling to Memphis each August to compete for the title.

WILL "BARDAHL" MCDANIEL

Will McDaniel met Elvis Presley in 1957 at Rainbow Skating Rink.  He earned the nickname "Bardahl" from Elvis that evening. Elvis, The Memphis Mafia, and Will McDaniel, were skating and Elvis kept knocking him down. Will said, "I am not going to let him knock me down again" and ran into Elvis and knocked him down. Will went and hid under a bench and Elvis sent the Memphis Mafia to go get him. Will had a t-shirt on that had "Bardahl" a car additive on it and Elvis called Will "Bardahl", and they have been friends ever since.
"Bardahl" prides himself on being the only guy to knock Elvis down and live to tell about it!
