Because Memphis owes Elvis and this would be the right thing to do. You reap the benefits from Elvis so give him something back. If you don't then go hang your heads in shame.

People from across the globe still flock into Memphis because of him. Its only fitting that Memphis pays tribute to him by renaming their airport. I don't know why it's taken so long!

Because Elvis Presley is one of the most influential people in musical & popular culture. Throughout his career, where he was probably the most famous musician on Earth, he continued to be loyal to the people of Memphis, the City itself & local charities. While most stars move to the glitz of Hollywood once they 'make it', Elvis didn't. He stayed in Memphis & he ultimately died in Memphis. It was & always will be, his home.
While the city of Memphis has quite a lot of great aspects & interesting things to see & do, Elvis & his legacy is what brings millions of tourists to the city year in, year out. & Graceland is still the second most visited house in the whole of the United States.
Liverpool in the UK has named their airport after their most famous son, John Lennon. Elvis himself, was John Lennon's inspiration, he said it himself: "Before Elvis there was nothing" - one of the most famous Lennon quotes.
Doesn't that justify the city of Memphis to honour Elvis the same way?
