Jerry Lee Lewis Net Worth
Jerry Lee Lewis net worth: Jerry Lee Lewis is an American singer-songwriter, musician and pianist who has a net worth of $15 million dollars. Born in Ferriday, Louisiana, Jerry Lee Lewis began playing piano as a child along with his cousins, who also grew up to be successful musicians. His parents originally intended for him to play in church, but he was expelled from his first bible school for playing a boogie-woogie version of the hymn, "My God is Real". He chose to focus on more secular music thereafter, eventually making his way to Nashville. Though he did not find success in Nashville, he caught the attention of Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee. He began recording as a solo artist, and as a session musician, for Sun in the late 1950s, subtly changing the sound of rockabilly by adding piano. During this time, he recorded multiple popular songs, including the hit tracks, "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On" and "Great Balls of Fire". Though his career has had ups and downs since then, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll of Fame in 1986, and opened the 25th Anniversary concert in 2009.
