Ahead of the event, Presley spoke with Us Weekly, providing an update on her granddaughters, Lisa Marie Presleny's twins Harper and Finley.
"I can’t believe they are so smart [with technology]," Presley told the magazine. "I mean, they can handle the phone better than I can. They know how to Google already, they know how to draw things and characters, and oh, my gosh. They’re just little girls experiencing life and having fun."
Presley recently shared some sad news from Graceleand. One of their horses, Max, died. Presley posted a photo of her two dogs comforting her after she got the news.
"I will miss Max tremendously. His story I will always hold dear to my heart," she wrote.0comments
