MUSIC NEWS: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 16, 2017 ELVIS - 40TH ANNIVERSARY For many fans of Elvis Presley, today is a day to remind themselves that it's been 40 years since the music icon died. This will also be the first year that people will have to pay for the right to take part in a procession past Presley's grave. The trek used to be free, But now, Graceland is charging 28 dollars and 75 cents for the privilege and that isn't sitting well with some Presley fans. Graceland, for its part, says it decided to add the paid wristband to update security measures at the tourist attraction. --- TAYLOR SWIFT - TRIAL The former radio host who lost that groping lawsuit to Taylor Swift says he wanted to see the matter through even if the final decision went against him. David Mueller tells The Associated Press a friend suggested he get…

MUSIC NEWS: TUESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2017 TAYLOR SWIFT - GROPING LAWSUIT She tried to keep it private, choosing not to get the police involved in what she says was a groping by a radio D-J at a meet-and-greet four years ago. But when it came time for her to go public, Taylor Swift told her story -- and a jury in Denver believed it. The result: a very public victory in the case -- and in the process has become an advocate for women victimized by unwanted touching and groping. Jurors deliberated for less than four hours to find ex-radio host David Mueller felt her up during a photo op. At Swift's request, she was awarded one-dollar in damages. --- TAYLOR SWIFT - STATEMENT Taylor Swift says she hopes that by speaking publicly about a 2013 groping, she hopes ``to help those whose voices should also be heard.'' Swift released…

MUSIC NEWS: MONDAY, AUGUST 14, 2017 TAYLOR SWIFT - CIVIL CASE Taylor Swift scored a victory in court Friday but the case is not over. U-S District Judge William Martinez threw out the claim of former radio personality David Mueller, who claimed Swift got him fired after a meet-and-greet at a 2013 concert in Denver. Martinez said Mueller failed to prove Swift was directly responsible for his job loss. Martinez also said there's no indication Swift made up her story that Mueller put his hand up her skirt and latched onto her rear end as the photo was taken. Swift is suing him for sexual assault. A jury still is expected to hear Mueller's claim that Swift's mother and a radio station liaison were instrumental in his firing. --- ELVIS - CANDLELIGHT VIGIL - FEE For the first time ever, Elvis Presley fans will have to pay in order to…
