Homes from “VMA” Nominee Hometowns

Justin Graceland Homes from VMA Nominee Hometowns

Though he up and moved to Florida as a young boy to begin his career in entertainment, Justin has always professed a love for his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee; especially the great barbecue and music!

Speaking of music, you can’t mention Memphis or music without bringing up the “King of Rock ‘n Roll” Elvis Presley. While this home is not for sale, we’d be remiss if we didn’t showcase the most famous home in Memphis. Known as “Graceland”, the 23 room mansion set on over 13 acres was home to Elvis and as a national landmark, now attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors a year.

The sights, sounds, feelings and people in our “hometowns” are inextricably tied to who we are and those influences almost always resonate in the music artists make.

With the MTV Video Music Awards nominations recently being announced, it occurred to us that the nominated artists in the “Video of the Year” category all have especially strong ties to their hometowns. To commemorate one of the most entertaining music award shows around, let’s take a look at some homes from their old stomping grounds.

While they always ‘rep’ for their hometown, their love for Seattle is on full display in their video for ‘The Town‘ and ‘My Oh My‘ – an ode to growing up watching Seattle Mariners games with his father.
