Elvis was most influenced by Gospel music, country, bluegrass (or Hillbilly). Bluegrass is like folk music in that the songwriters are mostly unknown (handed down in the oral tradition), but have been made famous by musicians of the time. The best example of an artist who must have influenced Elvis Presley would be Bill Monroe's (considered the founder of Bluegrass music in its true form) "Blue Moon of Kentucky"; a tune which has been re offered by many over the years. Elvis did an adaptation which has also been redone many times. Not to be overlooked, American blues music as performed by prominent black musicians such as Leadbelly and assuredly Muddy Waters found their way into Elvis' ears on many a magical evening enchanted by old time radio. I would recommend re releases (recordings) by Bill Monroe, Jimmy Rodgers, and throw in some Little Richard, or Muddy Waters, and Carl Perkins (great rocker who wrote "Blue Suede Shoes").
