Background

Released as a single on January 29, 1970, featuring "My Little Friend" as the B side, "Kentucky Rain" was one of the early hits in the 1970s for Elvis Presley, though the song was not included on an album until the compilation package Worldwide 50 Gold Award Hits Vol. 1 (LPM-6401).[1] While the track does appear on the 2000 re-release of From Elvis in Memphis, it was not included on the original 1969 album. During Presleys' February 1970 engagement, he performed it some sixteen times, introducing it as a new song "out about a week." Live versions are available on the box sets Elvis Aaron Presley and Live in Las Vegas.

The song is included on the CD 'Elvis with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra "The Wonder of You" (2016).

It was published by Elvis Presley Music, Inc. and S-P-R Music Corporation.

The lyrics tell the story of an anxious lover as he walks and drives through the "cold Kentucky rain" in search of his missing love. The single was certified Gold by the RIAA in March, 1992.

Charts

The single peaked at #16 on Billboard in a nine-week chart run. The single reached #6 in Canada, #21 in the UK, #7 on the Go-Set chart in Australia, and #12 on the Record World chart in the U.S.[2]
