KG and Ringy are in Mississippi, visiting the childhood stomping ground of their musical hero: Elvis Presley. They're pumped to follow in The King's footsteps to see what kind of rock-and-roll artifacts they can uncover. But first, they head out to uncover the mystery of a legendary Native American tavern. It's said the tavern is where Andrew Jackson signed a treaty which gave the U.S. government huge portions of the Southeast -- but no one knows exactly if and where it existed.
